    Its very true. I am not a genius. And i did not learn the thing i know at school.
    And yet i am one of the best in my country in my field.

    Starting to code things for yourself is the best way to learn programming.
    Just simple snippets. And then you can do more and more and maybe you'll code something big in the future :).

    I got to agree too. Programming is not hard, it is a way to think that fits things in the real life also.
    I did the quickest programming class I could so I could jump directly into a real job and then learn a lot. What is good with this kind of job is that you learn all the time, every day! You don't need a teacher or anything, just your brain, you can look up for examples, try and error, etc...
    I now work for one of the biggest software companies in the world, the knowledge is limitless really, and I see a lot of people here that are not genius or particularly talented into programming, but they can accomplish great things, and for a big corporation!

    Coding is a big part of my life. I love it.

    Programming is an art. It only gives flexibility if you learn that by yourself.

    I like that video. It came at a good time, the thing I'm trying to build is kicking my ass.

    I learned most of coding on my own. I took a few classes and excelled in computer science but at the same time I dropped out of the program. But I learned enough of what I need for my needs to take my ideas to the next level. If I finished, yeah I could have got a job somewhere doing .net or java for a comfortable salary, but my ideas are much more about being an entrepreneur. The power of coding to me is automating tasks to increase productivity and give me leg up over the competition. There is so much power in coding, you can build e-stores and the template work (wordpress, drupal, etc) is already done for you. All you need to do is plug in to your vendors through XML and get product lists, sort them and filter them on the backend and post to your site ... automatically with no human interaction. The better you are, the bigger the unpaid workforce you have under you. I am still learning, but the better I get the more it feels like I have free employees working for me. Powerful stuff.

    I feel like the gurus of the future will be the people who understand best the coding and technology. You can slightly see this already today.

    I consider myself very good at PHP, having built some incredible websites that are currently used by tens of thousands of users.

    I started to code 2 yeas ago in my first year of University, I like it so much I changed programs, but 90% of what I know I did not learn at school. I learnt just by finding a project, and jumping into it head first.

    I made a lot of mistakes along the way, but that's the best way to learn.

    programming teaches you a way of thinking that can be adapted to many different areas. I never regret being a teenager and sat next to a server at three in the morning fixing a problem. Its set me up with a great skillset where massive tasks that most people seem overwhelming are easy.

    You don't need to go to school to learn how to code. I'm a CS major and I would still say that I learn more at home than I do in class.
