first i hope this is the right section. iv wanted to learn how to program a pic for a while and i have a project in mind that could use one and have decided now is a good time to learn. i want it to do the ps3 jailbreak boot sequence (unplug, plug back in, power then eject quick) it should be a easy beginning ( trigger a relay the either trigger 2 transistors or just short to ground) and it could prolly be done with a 555 but i wana learn how to program pics. keep in mind that i only kno a bit of html, what software/language do i have to get and learn. and anyone know of a tut along the lines of what i have to do ( a input signal will trigger 3 output signals in a timed sequence) or any good beginners tut. thanks to all.
BTW i have all the hardware needed to program the pic and build the circuit

These tutorials are excellent and cover all the basics you will need, and much more.

FYI
I might mention here the PICAXE developed in UK for education use. PICs preprogramed in Basic and VERY easy and low cost to start up. If you can make a 3 wire serial cable with 2 resisters, that is all the hardware you need (with PICAXE of corse). The IDE is free, search for PICAXE. There are local sellers in US selling PICAXEs for way under $10 including shipping and there is a cable for the solder chalenged (how can you build circuits if you cant make a cable?), that is pretty cheap. I was running an LED blinker in 10 min Resisto and LED not provided. :)

Then with a little experience you can gat a PICKIT2 or 3 (2 works good enough for the beginners and is cheaper, 3 would be for poor developers with a little future proofing.
