It seems like there are three major paths to learning how to program: in school, from someone else, or on your own. Some programmers learned through only one of these paths, while others used more than one technique.
I was first exposed to programming through my father, but my first true instruction was in high school. After learning a few languages in high school and taking two Computer Science courses in college, I taught myself the rest of the way.
I'm curious to know how TechRepublic members got their programming education. Let us know by taking the following poll.
