I started with zero to no knowledge on coding and was able to learn cascades and a bit of C++ over a span of a few months and made a few apps.
I reccommend reading the information a resources under the cascades sections of developer.blackberry.com
My main starting point was just importing some of the samples and seeing how they functioned so that I could bits and pieces of existing sample code and use them towards my apps.
all the best!
