Discussion on: How did you first start out learning programming?

early 90s, They were two french magazines hanging out at home. "Linux Planete" and "Login:" (previously Amiga Dream) and i could buy the previous month edition for 0.8$. bundled with distribution CD's (SUSE was like 7 CD's), programming tutorials and stuff.

What hooked me in were two game development tuts, one with Blitz Basic (meeh) and another one with Python/Tk/Pygame (Yeeh) that taught me basic OOP concepts.
that was the hook, then the internet came and finding resources wasn't that hard anymore.
