    Java

    Where would one learn Java? Since it seems to be a prerequisite for learning Android...I would like to learn it (for the least cost possible) in my free time. Where should I get started?

    Edit: I'm also trying to learn Linux (by converting my old(er) laptop to an Ubuntu machine, so any tips on that would help as well!

    I'm in this same boat as well. I was a programmer by trade a couple years ago, and haven't had to do so in a couple of years.

    I'm trying to find as many java tutorials and information about object oriented programming (much easier to learn java if you understand this) on the web as I can.

    I'm going through the videos here right as we speak: Eclipse and Java for Total Beginners. I like this tutorial because he's using Eclispe to show you Java.

    I'm also looking at books through Amazon since their reviews are usually pretty accurate on if a book is going to be useful or not. So far, I have two on my list:

    Head First Java - for the basics

    Java How to Program - for the more in-depth

    Hope this helps!

    And please, if anyone knows java and has some good ideas of where to start, please add it to this thread!

    I highly suggest the 'Bible' series books. Don't be intimidated by their enormous size, and if you want to learn Android specifically i would recommend a book called Hello, Android that covers writing code for 1.5 and 1.6
