Any languages after that just get easier and easier. For example, I started out programming around a year and a half ago, by inadvertently learning ActionScript 3 in Flash. I stuck to ActionScript for a long time until I was comfortable to move on. Once you adopt the programming mindset, learnt the convention, terminology, data types and the full syntax of a single programming language you're pretty much set. StackOverflow is the best place to get help (and only help - they won't make your programs for you) with programming, in my experience.
