    Head First series would be a perfect guide for anyone who's new in programming.

    So what languages are you trying to learn?
    You mention java, php and vb - they are all quite different and you'd be best to stick to one.

    Java and php do mean you have to learn javascript as well, and get a handle on css too.

    Hi iki,

    You mentioned PHP so I recommend you "PHP and MySQL web development"
    Awesome book with many examples.

    Don't waste your time on a single development platform. If your work can't port across the market leaders there's little point in doing it.

    Your reply makes no sense.
    You are 19, a student, and want to set yourself up so that you are employable
    but you want to limit your learning and experience to android only

    Surely if you want to be employable you learn the skills that are useful?
    I wouldn't want to be employed by a company that focussed on android only - they wouldn't last long in the real world.

    android isn't a language and there are app making toolkits that compile for both. I'm in the process of outsourcing an app project and I wouldn't consider, for even a second, a developer who would develop the ios and android versions separately.

    You should learn computer science only if you want to be an expert programmer. I mean that your skills should not be very language specific but rather, focus should be on problem solving/generic algorithm designing/ data structures/ OS concepts/distributed systems/database/networking plus learning(to be expert in) any one language such as C/C++/Java to implement the algorithms. Most engineers in Google are masters in problem solving & algorithm designing.

    Considering job perspective they look for some one skilled in one of major programming languages like C++/Java/any language of your interest with good problem solving skills, for some one who is just out of college. A good resume should consist of good & challenging projects (shared on the web as open source). It could be developed using your choice of language.

    From a job perspective I would suggest Cracking the Coding Interview: 150 Programming Questions and Solutions Paperback by Gayle Laakmann McDowell which is not just a Q/A book but focuses on concepts that are most seeked in Google, Apple, Amazon etc. The author had experience being interviewed & selected in those companies as well as taking interviews of other candidates.

    Note - I am a software developer in an Investment bank with experience in developing software using Java programming language and related frameworks. My primary skill was C/C++ when I was out of college and in my first interview they had asked me to explain the algorithms for sorting, searching using pseudo-code and explain few CS concepts apart from 1 or 2 puzzles.

    For php, apache and mysql, the best starting point would be Sams Teach Yourself PHP, MySQL, and Apache in 24 Hours - See more details of the book at Ebookspedia.org

    For Android apps, the most simplest and fastest learning approach would be to use a for dummies book, like: Amazing Android apps for Dummies, see more details of this book at Ebookspedia.org

    w3schools is the last place I'd send him. Despite their designation as the supposed source of "internet standards" their courses are almost always the last place to update information. For instance, the "font" tag was deprecated years ago, but w3schools taught it as compliant html for over a year after it was no longer considered compliant.

    If you want to learn advanced programming, I'd start with http://www.codecademy.com. It's very easy to follow, is interactive and keeps track of your progress. If you already know PHP and JAVA, you might want to get a subscription to http://www.lynda.com. They have thousands of excellent video courses.

    For Java programming I would suggest Effective Java by Joshua Bloch. It contains a lot of examples on how to implement things properly and gives you insight why some of the implementations are better than others.

    This book has some much info in it, it doesn't matter if you're just starting Java programming or you're a seasoned expert, there's something new for everyone.

    Really..why? The only way to cross develop is to use JavaScript and HTML5 and have it wrapped in pre-made apps that embed browser controls. The end result is absolutely cheap and the performance sucks.

    The only way to develop for both is separately in 2 different languages.

    I also do recommend the PHP & MySQL books.
    I enjoy developing websites with Php & MySql a lot, it's pretty easy. :)
