    Default Re: Very new to Java,How long does Java take to Learn

    Hello captjade. Welcome to the forums.

    I think it all depends how much exposure you've had to programming and programming logic. If your a complete beginner then I think the initial learning stage must be quite hard. When I started learning Java I already had experience with Visual Basic, Perl & PHP so that really helped me pick up Java quite quickly. Once you start learning Java I think you will be learning forever because the language is constantly evolving and there is a lot to learn!

    If you program for 90 minutes a day you will pick up Java in no time. Once you understand the basics, everything else starts to fall into place.

    Thats an interesting question. I've been reading into it and found these good links:
