1. March yourself over to the local junior college and take
an introductory programming class.

2. Go to my website ( and
read the whitepapers on OO terminology and API documentation.

3. Go to and sign up for a couple of
their classes

4. Go to and read about the languages
you didn't study in school.

5. Hang w/ the programmers at work to pick up the vocabulary.

HTH! Good luck!
