So I've got no previous programming experience but i'd like to get myself started and broaden my knowledge about Macintosh and computers in general. So is there any really good book about programming for beginners?? And books about programming in Mac environment? And also some books about some specific programming language like suggested Java or Phyton that are great to learn first? I've seen those Dummies books - are these worth to check or is there anything better available? And yeah.. what about AppleScript? Isn't it a great place to start?? Thanks in advance j.
