Get K&R and read it a few times (it's short).
If you already know another language like C# or Java, you might also
want to write some code in Vala and study the C output that the
compiler generates. That'll give you some insight into how all the
complicated GLib/GObject type/object system stuff in C maps to the real
code you mean to write.
