    Default Help a fella out?

    Hello all! I just graduated with a BA in Music Theory and Composition, however I really would love to get an MS in Software Engineering. I am teaching myself C++, and want to learn Java. The junior college near me does not offer a Java class for me to take, so does anyone know any good (hopefully free) online resources to self-teaching Java? I found one for C++ called learncpp.com and I am really enjoying it. So if anyone knows something similar I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks all.

    I applaud your motivation. Just be aware that there are quite a few undergraduate courses you also will need to take. And degrees in Computer Science and related fields are much more than just programming.

    codeacademy.com seems to have a decent, interactive and free start for Java. But it is only a start.
    Youtube has some decent videos that cover specifics, but not the underlying basics.
    I would start off with a book.
