    Hey that sounds fun! I might try that actually. I know some basic stuff of C, but never been further, due to time and life, mostly.

    That is 100% awesome. It even has micro-transactions! :P

    Registered, definitely going to play with it. Could be the perfect entertaining and amusing thing to do at work during down-time. Thanks!

    Any other awesome links for python learning, that doesn't feel like forced learning? :P

    In many cases that is not an especially useful question.

    Learn a fairly low level language and(/or) the concepts of programming and the rest mainly ends up "so this language uses static typing, oh well. Ah, must remember functions use square brackets rather than curly".
    Becoming any kind of expert is another thing, and there will doubtless be some creative ways to trouble yourself and assuming libraries function in similar ways will do fun things for you ( http://debugmo.de/2008/03/thank-you-datel/ for an example relevant to here), but the ability to make useful changes in any non esoteric language (and possibly even those as well if you can get the syntax sorted in your head) is something I would say anybody that is going to call themselves a programmer can do.

    I think to actually learn a programming language you need a certain mindset, which I don't have. It would be nice to be able to learn a language, however programming just doesn't seem to click with me.

    I have created some basic PHP scripts, along with some Windows Batch Scrips to automate certain tasks, however i'd never class myself as been able to program.
     
  5. Both. You have to have the intellect to learn to code which in of itself is enough to get a good paying job,the creativity of the individual programmer is what makes it an art.

    To answer @OP's question

    I'm learning how to code already, in fact I already know how to code with Java, Lua, HTML(5), Python and a little bit of BASIC.

    I'm in my senior year of High School and after I graduate, I will be going to college and major in Computer Programming and Computer Science and hope to further my skills in programming and to get a damn good paying job at least :P
