Hi Steve,
Just adding to the feedback from Glen Mullet. For a good intro into 
Python and Java there are great intro videos on Youtube by a guy called 
Bucky Roberts. Alternatively you can go to his web page 
www.thenewboston.com (I'm not responsible for his sense of humour though ;-)
All the best.
