Oh and if you have any questions google cant answer, perhaps we can! so feel free to ask!

You may for instance want to start looking at:
Network + or CCNA (if you need networking concepts understanding) type material.
You should also be familiar with both linux and Windows OS
Your programing experience will be useful.
You can then have a look at the likes of CEH, if you want a broad understanding of security concepts.
Perhaps eCPPT if you feel you have the basics under your belt and want to focus more on penetration testing techniques.
Hopefully this helps. There are a number of other discussions in these boards around certification.
