    No it is not too late.
    What aspect of programming are you thinking of taking up?
    Web, End user software, Games, OS development are some of the bigger programming umbrellas.

    Pick your drink.

    It's so much easier now to access information on any coding topic, no need to even leave your desk/home.

    Here are a few sites that can help you get start:
    http://code.org/learn
    http://coursera.org
    developers.google.com

    Here is a nice lil compiled list:

    Judging from the number of camps I've been seeing in Berkeley when I was up thee for, especially for people switching jobs - NO.

    It's never too late to learn anything. You should start with Javascript, which is the most popular language and use for both back end & front end. Then Python and C. Goodluck!

    It is never too late.

    Just like it is never too late for a fish to leave dry land and go into water.

    The natural order of a progressive brain is to acquire a skill/skills among other things.
    Music, Games, Dancing enhance the Fun Algorithm. The Fun Algorithm can be used to hack the Caring Algorithm. Children should have fun, and watch Sofia the First. Receiving Care develops care. Having fun makes it easier to give care.

    So, I looked more into beginner info on the topic and I think this article will be useful for you: https://www.1and1.co.uk/digitalguide...le-javascript/
    It gives more information about Javascript, how to enable and disable it and some other tips when using it. It will be useful for a beginner, at least I found it as such when I was new to the subject. Good luck and don't hesitate to ask if you are confused about something.

    As stated before, it's never to late to learn anything. What counts is your drive and/or your passion/desire.

    If you're doing it for work purposes then it may be tedious, but it is still doable.

    If you're doing it because you're interested/like/love the field, then you won't actually be doing work.

    There are many free resources available and many different languages. What kind of programming do you want to do? General PC/MAC application development? Mobile development? Web development? Do you have a specific language or set of languages you'd like to learn? Do you have any prior experience in programming? These are all things you should consider.

    If you provide a bit more detail on what area you'd like to get into then persons may be able to guide you accordingly. There may also be some persons here that would be willing to provide assistance through your learning process.
    Knowing the solution doesn't mean knowing the method. Yet answering correctly and regurgitation are considered "learning" and "knowledge".
