Don't worry about what specific field you want to get into yet. Learn the fundamentals and start building the kind of programs that interest you. You'll learn more if you're having fun.

Computer Programming is a broad field that accommodates a lot of different types. The more specific you can be with your question, the easier to answer, but many professionals have moved within the field over their career.

Hi Billien ,
Computer programming is a process that leads from an original formulation of a computing problem to executable computer programs. Programming involves activities such as analysis, developing understanding, generating algorithms, verification of requirements of algorithms including their correctness and resources consumption, and implementation (commonly referred to as coding[1][2]) of algorithms in a target programming language. Source code is written in one or more programming languages. The purpose of programming is to find a sequence of instructions that will automate performing a specific task or solving a given problem. The process of programming thus often requires expertise in many different subjects, including knowledge of the application domain, specialized algorithms and formal logic.So find what interests you and then go about it

I would suggest taking a free online class from coursera or udacity or just find one of the many free online tutorial in a language of your choosing.

Mark’s Answer

I'd recommend starting to learn programming on your own to see how you like it. The more you work at it, the more you'll know about which areas you are most interested in working in.

Samson’s Answer

Hi Billien, Try learning a programing language called Python. Its a good beginners programing language and at the same time it has a lot of features. Its a good first step to learn a language like Python , because its like pseudo code which is the basis of most programming languages.

Gavin’s Answer

The best way to find out is going to be to try it - there's nothing stopping you from attempting a project and learning as you go. There's lots of tutorials and guidance out there on the internet if you look. I've found having a goal to produce something to be very helpful in guiding my learning and working out what interested me most - both when I was a student, and now I'm in work.


If you're interested in game development at all, I'd recommend downloading a game engine like Unity, going through their tutorials, and then moving on to trying to create something of your own. Much of what you'll learn, at least in terms of code, should be transferrable to other areas of programming - and many of them provide a solid set of tutorials to get you started.
