Re: How do you learn how to code?
Depends completely on what you want to do, It's not something you can say "oh I'll just learn that today". Decide what it is you like about computers and then learn how to do that.
For example, I was always interested in the web so I learnt html, css, php and a bit of .net. That's enabled me to do what I want, but if for example you want to make games, it's a completely different side of programming. You can make games in php, but if you ever want a job you'll need to be sufficient in many different programming languages.
To finish off, your best bet is taking a look at the subsections of this forum to see what languages are used, then think of a program that would be useful to you and make it. Even if it's a simple calculator it will give you a good understanding of coding.
Also, Google is your friend not your enemy.
