Welcome to the Web page for my book Sams' Teach Yourself Java 1.1 Programming in 24 Hours. This programming tutorial is a great way to learn Java from the grounds up. It's for non-programmers, new programmers who hated learning it, and experienced programmers who want to quickly get up to speed. The emphasis is on hands-on experience and fun projects.
Anyone can learn how to write computer programs -- even if they can't program a VCR -- and the Java language is a great way to do it.
As the author of the book and someone with seven hungry mouths to feed at home (if you count a cat, and two Chia Pets), I hope you'll take a look through this site. Please stay long enough until our subliminal advertising convinces you to purchase the book at its full retail price.
