AnswerRe: How to learn programming? PinprotectorOriginalGriff19-Jul-14 23:31 
If you find learning programming boring, then you need a different career.
If you succeed and become proficient an any programming language, that is just the start of "learning about programming" - you will (hopefully) do it for the whole of your working life.
For example, I have been "programming" since the late 1970's, and I'm still learning new things.

But then, the same is true of any task that requires cogitation rather than just brute force. Because if you stop learning - whatever you are doing - then you are at best stagnating, and at worst going backwards.

Learning programming is only boring if you can't be bothered to apply what you are supposed to learn. If you go "this is dull, I'll skip that" then it will be more boring later because you won't have a clue what is going on when things get complicated.
Those who fail to learn history are doomed to repeat it. --- George Santayana (December 16, 1863 – September 26, 1952)
Those who fail to clear history are doomed to explain it. --- OriginalGriff (February 24, 1959 – ∞)
