If you know any structured language similar to C then the syntax will come easily. The difficult part is learning to follow a smart paradigm in your code so that you are not constantly needing to redesign your work. You can pick it up froms book but much of it is theory and is learned on the cuff.

    Then Perl from wanting to customise UBB. Then PHP from the PHP website because I wanted to learn how vbulletin worked, and to write my own CMS.

    Nothing beats learning when you have a project in mind. The incentive makes learning fun....always

      I'm still learning. Just got the basics down really, if anyone has any advice for php (vB Code in general, so I can make hacks and such), it'd be appreciated.
