@ossia @rurounikz so, how to learn from scratch?

I think that writing great computer programs is like writing wonderful poetry. Nobody can teach us the creative act. But we all have to learn how to write, in order to be able to handle correspondence related to our taxes, for instance. And to be able to read great poetry.
Similarly, we should all learn how to program computers, in order to be able to program our refrigerator, for instance. And to be able to read and appreciate wonderful computer programs (and programmers).
