I prefer to learn from books, and for that I recommend AppleScript: The Missing Manual. It'll be free if you get it from the library.

I would count AS as a programming language however you will find its limits, most of my programs were coded in AS such as the popular MultiAlarm which now has reached the limits of AS and will need a recode.

Anywho applescript.net was a nice resource and helped with most things but i would just say experiment and look at other projects for help
