It's easiest if you start hanging out with people who can program (and best of all, earn good money programming).

There's lots you can learn on your own. Just do some web searches. Pick a language, and start learning. Python is great for a beginners. (I like Haskell, but I'm weird.)

There are a bunch of auxiliary skills that help. Learn how to use irc (freenode is great), get familiar with github.

Drop me a line, if you need more help. My email address is in my profile.
