Trial and error. Also the coding wizards on stackoverflow.
Take courses.

Do good in math
Think Logically.
The most important thing of all

Don’t be scared to say “I don’t Know”
The smartest people in the world are those who admit that they don’t know.

I Started by looking for a coding language to start with. Then I tried doing some simple things in it, If I got stuck I would look up on how to do it! I might have gt an idea or two! Then I kept going until I felt like I've had gotten it down. Then I tried doing a big project. Then I repeated for other languages

I started learning C with my friend, and then I converted to Python. After that, I learned some HTML and CSS. I also looked into lots of other languages. I mostly learned them off of tutorial websites like w3 schools and also by looking at other people's code and stackoverflow questions.

I learned a lot about hardware/networking a few years back, and messed with Windows' built in FTP server. I learned coding from books and tutorials on the Internet.

I was very interested in how to build a website, so I started learning HTML, CSS, and JS. Then I started learning Server Side Coding like Node.js, Deno, and Python.

Well, I started off by learning the basic syntax of Python and then moved onto other topics such as recursion which apply more to programming as a whole. I would recommend starting with Python or C++ as a starting language as they are both relatively easy and useful.

You can also find good tutorials for Python online, which is a good reason to start with it.
