    FTFY.

    All I can think of ASM teaching me is highly processor(/architecture) specific things. It still hides a huge amount. I agree learning it is a good idea, but it's not really a substitute for a course on the subject...
    Agreed. I'm a little biased because I am an electronics engineer and ASM/Machine code is vital for understanding how processors respond/fail when used in safety critical applications like aircraft control systems, guidance control, reactor control etc.

    Tis not good enough to take the manufacturers word for it!

    Have a look at http://www.caveofprogramming.com/ if you're interested in learning Java.

    I would recommend learning vb.net or c# in visual studio if you're new to programming though as you can drag and drop controls onto a form and manipulate them easily through the VS interface. With Java, you generally write the GUI in code and you probably won't find a better IDE than Visual Studio anyway IMO.

    Not such useful advice when the OP was wanting to do this on a Raspberry Pi.

    There are IDE's out there for Java and several of the Linux/Unix text editors are very good at helping you write code.
