Hey all, I thought I'd post this here because it seems like for some reason a large portion of posters have programming experience. I was wondering if there were any free/online places to learn Java, or recommended books, for a complete programming beginner.
Anyways, are there places which you would recommend learning Java for somebody with almost no program experience?
Ugh, another beaner
I'd suggest http://pluralsight.com/training
Specifically A lot of Java Courses
You can join Pluralsight for free for 10 days and in that time, I'd think you'd easily be able to knock off a couple of the courses. If you end up liking it, you can buy a monthly subscription for $29 and it is a very good value from a professional standpoint. If you have a newer ginormous phone screen, the mobile app allows you to actually pull the courses down to your device and playback off-line which is nice too.
Welp I've essentially given up...I am failing hardcore at the Google Maps API i'm trying to use...all I can get it to do so far is zoom in on the current location lol...
Does anybody want to do the programming for my app with me and if it ever makes any money I'll go 50/50 with you for life?!?!
tldr; Tupacalypse sucks
edit: And i'm completely serious about the offer.

Hi all, we're putting AngularJS in General Motors cars; MY 2014 vehicles will soon be in dealerships with an embedded WebKit in the dash, and we've been writing a ton of apps using only AngularJS. We're recruiting, so ping me if you're interested. These apps have the potential to be seen by millions -- and we're having a blast using Angular.
And as I said in one of these threads, the barriers to entry for web programming are almost nothing (compared to languages that require runtime and development environments).
