How Did You Learn How To Program? ...I never stopped learning!

I started on a TRS-80. But I too give thanks to my real beginnings to QBASIC. Instead of my dad, it was my older brother that introduced me to it. He eventually gave up programming and became an outdoors man. I on the other hand have been coding for the past 20'ish years :)
