Hi I am new to the world of computer programming, and of course I am new to this forum. I was wanting to get into Freelance Programming, but to do so I need to learn a language.

So I bought a book on Java, and was thinking about teaching myself Java as my first programming language. As well I wanted to know if this is the right forum for me? I mean to ask questions you may think are rather stupid, but yet are a huge part of the learning curve destined ahead of me.

Well anyways just wanted to say Hello and make sure this is the right place for me.
