This is a short guide that I just posted on Reddit, for anyone here who might want to pick up the basics of computer programming, but who does not know how to start.  The reason why I haven't just copied and pasted it here, is because it contains sufficient links, that having to re-edit it with forum markup would be tedious.

Seriously, I don't think that's a good way of starting, as it points to specific things that may make people think that programming is only directly connected with them.

But I agree that getting a general understanding of how to think is the best start, as there's the need of thinking about things in a slightly different way.

PS: I started with a specific language, ZX Spectrum's Basic. :)
