Obviously, you have access to the internet. Might I recommend that you journey over to Coursera.com? There are many developer classes there. I recommend you try it. We need good developers, and as the world becomes more technologically facing, there will be a need for folks who can do this.

Thank you comment icon This was super helpful, thank you! Josephine

Hi Stephanie A. I see that you posted this question a little while ago so I hope my answer to you (or others who may read this response) is still helpful.

One of the most impactful steps that can be taken to be a successful programmer is to learn as many programming languages as possible. Now to get to that level, you first have to start by learning one language :). For young people who haven't studied programming in high school, there are a boatload of websites that can help. Some awesome youtube channels as well. I learned my first language from books. Though that was a little while ago for me :D, your local library will also be a great resource for being able to dig deeper into code development.

It is true that websites like Coursera are also great resources, though my experience has been that those sites are more designed for people who already have some background in programming (and in many cases, are of college age).

One you begin to learn a programming language....practice, practice, practice. Write as much as you can. Get creative about what you can do with what you have learned...and then, go learn a new language. You will find that the more languages you learn, the easier it is to learn a new one. Best of luck to you!

If you're looking for a quick route I highly recommend a coding bootcamp. In 3-6 months you can learn the skills necessary to get your foot in the industry door. They're also available remotely and have a lot of deferred payment programs where you don't owe a penny until you get a job.

I suggest that you study in a suitable environment. It is a waste to explore and apply the expertise you have learned in an immature environment. If you really like programming, you'd better learn in the US or Europe. When Guatemala's social and economic development can meet the needs of your return to development, you can come back to do your business.
