Inspired by this thread on programming languages,
I have a question on learning programming if you have no
programming experience. (more)

I didn't want to derail the other thread because the poster had a very specific question which was answered comprehensively...
If someone wanted to make a complete career shift and begin teaching themselves to code from the ground up, what would be the recommended strategy? For example, I know HTML fairly well, but I also know that HTML is not, in the pure sense, a programming language.
So, aside from the possible "How to Code for Dummies" idea, I'm curious if the more experienced could point someone who has never written a line of compiled code in his life in the right direction. Thank you.
