ALOT OF DANGERS TO BE AWARE OF AS WELL.

Linux environments
*your going to need linux for some development so i would suggest installing ubuntu on your development pc*

Thats a good bases to start learning =)
Buy books! They help alot!
Alot of developers keep their knowledge to themselfs and more than likely will not help out a new developer...

Goodluck

*Note*
There are several types of developers and the likely hood of you learning everything is slim so its always good to develop in teams and work together as 1.
