To learn to program, you have to write programs.  Start simple and work your way up.  A good book on C will help also.  The C Programming Language (Kernighan & Ritchie) is a concise introduction to C and the standard library.

If you can't spring the cash for a book, then I'm sure you can find a "c tutorial" website somewhere on the internet.  The AXON MCU uses the AVR, which has it's own set of compiler tools built on top of GNU's gcc.  So, if you are hunting for a decent "c tutorial", lean towards the ones that use gcc.  This will make life easier because the toolchain will be the same.  (Well, c/c++ toolchains are the same anyway; just the tool names are different.)

If you have any questions, post them here.  Maybe we should start our own SOR C tutorial  :)
