It is my opinion that the best way to learn programming is by doing it and having somebody there telling you how you are doing it wrong.
I'll be that guy telling you how you're doing it wrong, but please don't take it personally. It's a significant amount of work for me to point out what a screw up you are --- I mean where your coding style could use improvement.
Jerk point number two: I'm happy to do this for people that are participants here. If you don't want to participate in the porkchop, but you need somebody to teach you Java - I'm sure there are lots of commercial entities willing to help you out.
