If you want to learn how to program, than there's a lot to read.
All depends whether you have experience in another programming
language or not.
I advice you to take a look at the books you can find at http://java.sun.com/.
That is always the best starting point.
Take a look around and above all, learn how to use objects and classes.
The book "java 2 primer plus" from Steven Haines and Stephen Potts is a very
good book. It explains the syntax and shows the advantages of programming
with objects. The book "Java How to program" from Deitel is another interesting book.
ANd for the rest : take a look at the different java forums you can find on the internet.
There's always a helping hand out there.

I agree with gertcuppens.

There's no way someone can help you learn programming on MSN.

You're better off picking up a book (i've read that Deitel book myself), or reading the various forums and articles.

I highly recommend attending formal training, such as a single course or an entire college program. It's easier to pick up knowledge in a classroom environment.

The books are worth buying if you are serious about learning programming.

Otherwise, seek out some articles from sites such as Devarticles or Devshed.
Articles are generally more specific and often assume you have a basic understanding of programming concepts and language syntax.

Bruce Eckel has written a book "Thinking in Java". If you look
for this title with google, you will find some web sites where you can
download his book in html or pdf format for free.

There's always P2P networks and/or protocols...
I hear them things are pretty popular with the teens

If you're starting out with programming, and looking to specialize in web development, Java might be a little intense to dive into.
Have you considered something simpler, such as PHP?
It would help to have a great knowledge of XHTML and CSS as well.

I also agree with gertcuppens, and would like to add that Sun.com has many free tutorials available. The Deitel book is also very good, it walks you through Java step by step. I am new to programming, I am attending classes at ITT Tech learning software application programming. Sun tutorials and the Deitel book have really helped me in my classes. Good luck on great future!
