Well, learn to program is like to learn a new language..
I think you need to learn the basic first: grammar and so on.. first learn to say simple sentences then you'll do more complex..
There are different categories of programming languages: read about the differences between functional and object oriented..
Then you'll have to focus to learn one language you think will be more useful to you (web applications? client.server?)
Without having hurry. if you start from beginning and you focus to understand the procedures and so on, you'll be able to learn fast. the basics you need to understand yourself, then you may code parts of a bigger program with a team
Xampp may be useful if you want to start to code some php pages with database queries.
but if you want to learn java or c++ or other.. you'll have to choose the proper enviroment
So am I! If you have any tips please share them with me, I'll be very grateful.
Do you recommend a XAMPP type set up? Or something else? How did you learn? On your own? With someone else's help?
All pointers, no matter how small, please write them underneath!
