When the SO about page says "professional and enthusiast programmers", I'm one of the latter.

I've been programming for about 10 years. I started by playing with Visual Basic 6, took some classes, but fatefully decided to become a music producer. Java is the language I'm most familiar with, then C++. Lately I've been learning some Objective-C (and, by extension, C), JavaScript, AutoIt and regular expressions. I'd consider my skill level intermediate.

My brash advice on... to teach yourself how to program:

  1. Read the literature.
  2. Write the code. to not teach yourself how to program:
