How did you Learn to Program and Code?

#31
I personally learned the basics of Java and C in university. I have studied Computer Engineering and learned about software and hardware architecture, programming languages, complilers, libraries and everything in between. My only problem with these studies is that they are extremely theoretical, so you may spend three to five years studying these topics and find yourself not ready for work or not skilled enough.

Take a look at the source code , break down the code so you can understand how it works , then maybe rebuild something else from what you've learnt

I learned programming all by myself while researching on the internet. The first programming language that I learned was WML (Wireless Markup Language). It was for java and symbian mobile os like in 2004 to 2009. Soon after that I have learned my other programming languages like html, css, javascript, php, mysql using lynda's video tutorials. Surely it helped me a lot. So now if someone asks me how to learn programming I refer them to lynda.com's video tutorials.

I started programming at the school. first learned program language is c. 
Now I am also a programmer!

I learned my first language in school, it was easy but you couldn't do much with it.Python is a good language but in school you learn the basics for a long time.In my opinion you should start learning a language from tutorials or alone from maybe threads.Its quicker and more effensive

The best way to code is to watch youtube videos.  It's the a massive library that can teach you anything.  I learned to be a great coder with the internet and coding my personal apps.

Totally agreed. For me YouTube is a treasure trove of tutorials for anything under the sun. I learned HTML, CSS, WordPress, WHM, the whole works and all of the how-to details. There are some real gems in there.

With what @Jr32767 says, compared to what others say here, can we say school (IT college) is useless? because you don't need to study in school to learn programming. There are plethora of resources available in the internet to learn programming.

IT College is never useless. It's a qualification that will be very valuable when you apply for serious IT positions.
These days there are many IT specialists who are self-trained with experience, however if there is a choice between two of them and the one has an IT qualification, I'm sure he will have an edge over the other one.

I started from a book about C#. Excellent language for a beginner!! Later I chose to watch video tutorials. For websites I started with w3schools.
#41
i just complete some tutorials on youtube, and attend some lectures on free udey course, and learn a lot from examples from web tutorials, when i stuck at every step i use stackoverflow and it solve my problem 8 out of 10 times
#42
I personally learn from classes in school. I started off just watching videos and testing things out on my own however!

Oh it's so jealous.
Does your father is still great programmer than you?

We are in common, youtube is nice resource to learn how to somethings.
I created my 1st discord BOT by watching a tutorial movie on youtube.

I watched this one indian guy on youtube for C# tutorials. He had like 200 videos and he explained everything. kudvenkat

Also, just creating projects and making programs yourself until you understand everything

I have been self teaching myself different concepts and languages of coding since the 5th grade. I actually started with a youtube tutorial on some weird visual scripting language because I wanted to make windows pop-ups to trick my friend into thinking he had a virus. I was 11 years old at the time so these were the types of things I found funny. I then noticed how much I enjoyed learning about computers in general and kept on watching youtube tutorials like that. I then decided I wanted a website to impress my friends and moved on to HTML/CSS. Then I decided I wanted my own Minecraft server, so I learned Java and started making in-house plugins for my servers. I also touched Lua for a bit and played with JavaScript, but it was a while before I took JS seriously. After a while of practicing the same skills, I wanted to learn something that could actually be used. So last summer I started learning JavaScript on Codecademy. I practiced it by making Discord bots but eventually decided I didn't like any of the node modules for doing so. Then I moved on to front-end JavaScript in web development. I made my first game and then moved back to back-end. I began rewriting my game to process back-end but unfortunately never finished. I still have it sitting on GitHub, actually. I am still teaching myself computer science just by playing around with things and googling around when they don't work. It's been going good so far.

Hi,

I started programming when I was in high school. Since then, I loved the programming. My first programming language was BASIC for ATARI / Commodore 64.

The best allies at that time were the books and trying with a computer everything I read.

This is how I learned. What a good times...

Best regards

Like Furukawa I am an older programmer - so many years back.  Basic and cobalt was in and all those were coded line-by-line - oh YAY! With all these new technologies and programming tools, makes programming a breeze.

I started coding in 2015 with PHP language. Back then i couldn't understand a thing of programming. But with Real World practice i came to know how to write pro level code. You better practice everything you learn without copy pasting. Try to write code with hands rather than just copy pasting. it will make you familiar with language syntax , typos & errors. There are thousands of websites now with full of tutorials. Like : & many more to follow. Read them & practice everyday. And always remember Stackoverflow is your programming Home. You are always welcome to solve your problem there , never ever hesitate to ask question you don't know. Most of the time spend on Stackoverflow than actual coding time. Right now i know Python, Javascript & PHP.

Although I have learned VB, PHP, SQL etc. by self taught
Once you learn one, other languages will be able to read the flow to the source.

I started off with messing around with Java trying to make Minecraft mods when I was only 12. Then, I moved on to learning Python on code.org as a part of a school project. Then, I got into the website business with HTML and CSS and used Khan academy for parts of it. I feel like W3Schools is a little disorganized and you can only use it to refer to specific bits of code you forgot how to do. I have started learning Java on an amazing online course on Udacity and it is designed by a college.

I read the book: "php in 24 hours"
After this you can do lots of things in php
