Well done! As someone with decades of experience in development, I'd say that if you have it in you to be a programmer then the number one skill is perseverance. Perseverance takes different forms: knowing when to shelve something, knowing when to delay solving a problem, knowing when to not give up and keep hacking away at it until it's solved. Stick at it! You'll just keep getting better and better.
