Discussion on: How did you first start out learning programming?

My first Programming book was "Fortran". I switched to python soon after. I would simply said that I like to make stuff, and I love work well done. And I can't stand to not understand what's going on. So I wanted to do something, didn't work, searched why, makes it work, repeat. That was my course of action.
And today, well I learn mostly from others.
If I could give advice to new programmer it would be: don't close your mind, search for what your tool is design for and if it does not suit you, pick another one.
Again, the code isn't that important. The problem you are solving with it is. I should have learn that first.
