    You can read books and e-books and watch tutorial videos. You should decide what programming language is best for you.

    Bodeezy and Jaeden are both looking (or once were) for an apprentice. You should pm them.

    These guys know their shit, they are probably not going to teach for free. I believe Bodeezy wanted $1k which is more than worth it to learn some of the languages they understand.

    Both of them are offering paid apprenticeship. You are not going to find anybody willing to take the time to teach you the real insiders of anything for free brother, time is money. Bodeezy is currently teaching his paid students by the way. It is definitely best you read some books and watch video tutorials because you wont find someone to hold your hand for free when learning anything, especially something as complicated as programming.

    Programming isn't complicated. If you are willing to be open minded and plough through plenty of what will seem like very dry (even dull) material, you will get there very quickly.
    Knowing where to find the kind of material that will explain the theory and the 'why's' behind the way computing languages work is another thing.

    Mastering a prog. language can take a lifetime. It does depend on what you are trying to tackle. A programming language is only a tool. Programmes are 'written' & designed in human minds.

    I would pick a language suitable to the kind of problems you are trying to solve. There are plenty of tutorials on programming for any language online, so you may aswell learn using the language and its syntax since that is why you would be learning in the first place. Alot of learn a language literature is designed for principiant computer scientists.
