Ahhh, you were lucky I didn't discover it until my thirties. I started with Harvard CS50 on Edx. I worked my way through the usual sites Codecademy, Treehouse, Coursera, Khan Academy, various textbooks, countless hours scanning over Stack Overflow questions, weekend coding workshops, programming meetups, and graphic design Bootcamp before settling down at Flatiron online for their full stack dev class. I am in my third and final year of self directed study and ready to make the big jump! According to StackOverflow 2017 survey statistics, 3 years seems to be the average time for self-learners. I wish somebody had told me that when I started, I would have felt a lot less frustrated that I didn't master it in a month like so many sites and schools claim to be able to teaach. I bet you don't regret putting the time in to make the transition!
