Getting into programming (Java)
I was wondering if you guys had some tips on maybe a website with some good tutorials/assignments to get used to programming
And how weed helps/inhibits your programming?

Codecademy and codingbat are two sites I have used. I haven't used codecademy that much but you can learn java, html, and css on there. I don't know how far they go though because I've only done the first lesson in java. Codingbat I've used a lot and it has java and python. It provides some well written notes but it doesn't really cover the basics. But if you know a little java this can be a great way to practice.
Just want to bump Coding Bat, amazing for learning your way around Java... I'm fuckin' hooked on this stuff man, the hours just fly by.
If you want to learn to code, all you need is that, a bit of patience and google and you can learn yourself an income source

When actually coding though, you can't go wrong with plenty of coffee and high sugar contents energy drinks.
Also, Java might be a bit ambitious as a beginners language. Or perhaps it's just me. Not entirely impossible

Once you learn logic, and learn a syntax like Java, it is easy to learn new languages once you have that general understanding of object oriented programming, the same goes for learning Perl and other procedural programming languages.
I am currently working in the industry... so if you have questions about the industry, specific fields within the industry or trouble with something feel free to bounce a PM off me, I'm more than willing to help if needed and have a pretty good grasp on this programming game

I first started out as a runescape junkie fondling with scripts through this program called SCAR. Then I stumbled upon a runescape private server community and started downloading the open source java servers and clients available. I looked through and noticed that everything was some how connected to each other, and started tracing where things were being called from.. so i pretty much learned my first steps in java by myself until i wanted to learn more. After playing around with them I began using clean pre-made sources and designing my own from scratch. I learned how packets were read/written and a bunch of other neat coding stuffs. After a year or two I met with this guy named aj who introduced me to c# and I ended up helping him create the first ever STABLE C# runescape private server called Jolt Environment
My suggestion is you find a open source game or private server and play around with it as well.. you gain experience and most of all have fun while your doing it

It teaches python, and by the end of the course you'll be proficient enough to try some harder tasks found throughout the internet. However, as its MIT the speed ramps up considerably after the 3rd lecture, and theres 24 overall, so you need to be committed and not get too frustrated for being slow. curious reef.com has communities working on the same course so theres heaps of help and worked solutions to the problem sets if you need them, as MIT doesn't provide any.
Another great option is Learn Python the Hard Way, or something like that. This dude has written numerous help books entitled Learn 'X' the hard way, and they all are a form of rote learning; writing lines and lines of code until it all sinks in. Google it as trust me it works.
Also you'll need a minimum of year 12 maths otherwise simple things like trying to find something in a list will seem like too much.
