Learning programming

Hi all,

Does anyone know of any audio cds or cassettes designed to teach programming (especially Java) or about IT in general ?

I currently work in accounting and am keen to learn/develop IT skills but don't have the energy to read, due to demands at work.

thanks,
JT

i've never heard of one, but that doesn't mean they don't exist.

the BEST way to learn how to program is to actually program. i don't think you can learn to paint by reading a book, or learn to ride a bike by listening to someone talk about it... you have to actually DO it.

sorry if that's not the answer you want. you can always try some books. many people here will recommend "Head First Java". the chapters are short and have good explanations of what they're doing. You can just do a chapter a night in (probably) under an hour...
