Off Topic (regarding the way we learn things nowadays): Thank God for Google and the Internet! Learning has become a pleasant and "entertaining" activity (no sarcasm intended, but I find learning fun nowadays, especially when I teach myself as to how to do things)
On Topic (here's my question regarding programming): How long, on average, does it take for someone to successfully familiarize themselves with a programming language such as Java/C++/C# ?
@ steverockdood - have a wonderful educating journey mate!

TheNewBoston – Free Educational Video Tutorials on Computer Programming and More!
He also does videos on Modeling, and Game development if your interested but i haven't seen any of them
I think for everyone its better to have a teacher IRL but self learning and internet resources builds Character and the ability to say your a champion at what you do
What i would do:
First find what Language you want to learn (I assume your topic deals with the ps3 so C/C++)
Get the proper tools to deal with the language(s)
Learn it (Basics)
Practice it along the way
Learn more (Novice)
Tackle a big project or join a team to learn more
(This is time consuming don't try to do it on your little bit of free time and get good over night)
I Find learning something new about 3D modeling or anything i love more fascinating than seeing Visual progress of what i can actually do but im just stupid like that
To be quite honest it depends on the person. There's really no "average" as it's like any other educational principle such as science, math, history, etc etc. There is no right answer. it depends on your own ability to pick things up. You may be able to get the ropes in a matter of days, or it could take months to years before you really become comfortable. It honestly depends on hundreds of different factors. I know that's probably not the answer you want, but anything other then this is purely subjective and in all honesty opinionated.
