Default [Q] about programming

yo guys any of the programmers here learnt how to program from scratch(by reading/watching android tutorial straight w/o knowing anything)??without learning the needed language first. eg:java

degree is very expensive here and I have no chance to study so my best bet would be buying books about android app development and read about them and also referring online, will it be very difficult?? I know how to program in VB.net and C program which I learnt in diploma

thanks


One more question, how do game developers create the game graphics?? it can't be every programmer are so good at drawing lol, do they hire someone to draw??

Try basic4android. With that program you can make android apps in Basic, but code will be compiled in native java, and you will get native android app without emulators.

There are some resources on the internet where you can get free graphics for games, but usually when you need something specific the designer is a "must have".
