Well, that depends - are you familiar with any other programming language(s) at this point? Being familiar with one language of that schema makes it very easy to learn another. My first language was Perl - which provided a smooth transition into other scripting languages. Since I knew how to program in general, I just searched on the google for example scripts and language documentation. However when I went to learn Assembly it was unlike anything I'd seen before and I needed an actual guide to explain new concepts. So if you're familiar with programming already, I highly suggest "winging it" - that is, try making something simple from example scripts. Edit them, hack them, make them your own. If you're entirely new to web programming or even programming in general, I would suggest an actual guide - there are some things that it's very difficult to pick up from example.
In any case, this guide should have enough info for you to make a Drupal theme with: http://us3.php.net/tut.php
And a good source for code snippets and reference is: http://www.w3schools.com/PHP/DEfaULT.asP http://www.tizag.com/phpT/
- I use those two sites all the time
- even if it's just to look up something simple that I just forgot how to do.
Good luck, my friend! Let us know if you make anything cool or need any help with the code itself
