    I can't tutor you but I can give you what to learn.
    - html
    - php
    - javascript

    When you know quite a bit of those scripts, you can start making fb apps.
    Where to get learning material?
    - Youtube (video tutorial)
    - library.nu (awesome free books store)
    - Google (?)
    - bitche (torrent search engine, you can get a lot of courses searching on bitche)

    Last but also the most important: concentration. You won't go anywhere if you don't concentrate.

    Good luck.

    Kick me in the nuts if I'm wrong but have you tried developers.facebook.com/docs? Or something along that line. :D

    Me? yes, I looked at it and also downloaded books on library.nu and all of them said those knowledge are required to be a good developer.

    To op, but you bring up a point that a lot of devs should know. In order to be a good developer, you need to know how to find the info yourself by looking through the docs and other online resources. It's just not efficient to sit down and learn an entire programming language, especially if you're looking to code in more than one language. All you need to do is go through the basic tutorials and then just look up the rest as you need it. I have yet to come across a problem and not find a solution for it online, and I know the basics of 5 langs.

    With that being said, AceKing, you want to go with HTML, Javascript, and CSS for coding with FB. Stay away from FBML. w3schools, like trustedfire9 mentioned is a great way to start. Great for programmers with short attention spans, which is about 99% of us. It provides little snippets at a time. Afterwards, look up videos on YT for the medium level programming, which should teach you the most used features that are unique to a certain lang. Again, if you have a short attention span, stay away from articles, and at this point just do a G search for anything that you want to know about a language. The best way to learn is by coding. What I did was just code a bunch of scripts and programs that I find useful on my computer, and that accounted for the majority of the learning that I had to do to create useful and efficient programs.

    You should do a good google search. Yes, you a=may have already done this but if you look enough you will find a lot about coding related to facebook. It might be fbml coding (pretty basic..) or it might be the coding of apps etc.

    Check youtube out too :)

    also, look at source forge for some facebook php application, that's a good way to learn via somebody else code. don't use fbml because it's in his end, work with facebook open graph and canvas.
