Confession: I wasted 1 - 2 years in uni with a professor who was focused on "theory first". 90 % of students did not understand what was taught. Only the 10 % that did already programming in their life could follow. So YES, start programming FIRST. And use the amazing content on Youtube. – And use Stackoverflow, first asking, later answering. This makes you a great programmer IMHO.
