    I do not think age really matters as long as you are willing to learn. In college my fellow students that were also pursuing degrees in computer science were as young as 18 to as old as in their 60's.

    So which were you spooks, 18 or 60? :P

    He's right of course, as long as you are willing and have the time to practice you will pick it up easy enough...

    Myself I'm 17 (in 9 days) and I learnt BASIC, ASP and Python 2 years ago and then in 2003 I learnt c/c++ and PHP ...

    I'm 22, 23 in a few weeks.

    Spook is several years older than me.

    jkd started early. I know @ least 14, but possibly sooner. I started when I was 4, with BASIC.

    Well I did actually learn BASIC in 1993 (I would have been 6) but I had pretty much forgotten it all after a few years because I got bored with it ...

    I'm 21, started when I was 11... Of course, I've long since forgot the languages I started on back then, like Pascal, simple Machine Code, and QBASIC (I tried BASIC, but for some reason it always crashed my AMD 80286 Clone)

    I'm the ripe old age of...

    23. I used to do Visual C++ way back in '96/97 but I left it. The only reason I'm doing Visual Basic now is it's a course requirement for an Associate's in Networking for some Godforsaken reason.

    Are you serious??? 6 or 7? I can't imagine being motivated enough at that age to learn any computer language. Your parents must be programmers.
