    Hello ash!

    I know some useful links to get you started off. For a sort of 'courselike' teach-it-yourself, Introduction to Computer Science using Java.

    Get familiar with The Java™ Tutorials because they are comonly linked and quite extensive. Then make sure you know how to read javadoc documentation, or Overview (Java Platform SE 6). After that you should be able to figure out pretty much whatever you need to know!

    The only way to become a programmer is to write lots and lots of programs. You must make the mistakes everyone does in learning.
    You can't become a programmer by reading.
