    I was hoping you guys here could guide me on the start of a path that eventually leads me to building my own rom from scratch.

    I don't know any programming language in detail, but I know the basics of Java and C#, and I've done a lot of scripting with a program called Autohotkey. I have Windows and know very little about Linux, although I have a VM and will happily install a Linux distro and mess around with it and learn the ins and outs of basic Linux stuff.

    My question is basically, what are all the things I need to teach myself in order to become proficient enough to build a rom? Although as I said, I don't have much programming expertise, I am very technically minded and confident in my ability to learn. I also am willing to put a lot of time into this effort.

    Where do I start? What do I need to know? What would help me on this journey? Thank you for your ideas and help!

    to get you started, you will need this:

    [TUT] Build your own AOSP ROM

    & this:

    Google

    lol but seriously, you will need to setup Linux (I recommend Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit), download Eclipse, and a bunch of other stuff (Android Developer). It's quite a hefty undertaking to go from 0 to Developer without knowing any programming, but that should get you pointed in the right direction.
