How did you learn how to code?

Most of mine was out of necessity plus trail and error when building my websites.

I learnt coding from playing around in my localhost. I know html/css but I really want to learn php so I can further customise things. Ive still never shown anyone one of my themes (I showed you my joke pink one lol).

I don't know too much code myself but what I do know I taught myself from tutorials online and from just messing around and working things out for myself. I have found it alot easier to teach myself from mistakes and tutorials then I feel I would have by going to college and learning. I may go to college myself at a later date to learn other coding I am not yet familiar with.

It really depends what you are keen on learning, since there are many programming languages on the web. For CSS, javascript and HTML I can only recommend using the website called www.w3schools.com . It has various tutorials online for free and you are even able to try out various things.

I have taken courses in coding long ago. After you learn one or two from an intructor, I have found that the rest seems a lot easier.

I learned C++ and Java in a class many many years ago. After learning those everything else seems a lot easier. I started to learn HTML, CSS and PHP afterwards using online tutorials and books that I got from the library.

Coding concept is very similar when it comes to all languages. Yes there are many big differences but when you learn a couple, others seem a lot easier.

I learned C++ during highschool. All the HTML I know I learned while working at my first blog.

Well, what i know so far is learned through watching online tutorials, reading instruction pages i have google & asking and reading on forums. As well as that, alot of trial & error has been involved, i have made a far few mistakes, messing things up from time to time, but learning what i done wrong & how to fix it, help not do it again.

I have learned it by using it. For example I had to use HTML for some of my websites and therefore always used search engines to find the specific code for a certain area.
