I am from England and I'm still in Secondary school, heading towards college.

In the US or in India or in Russia, wherever you guys come from, what age/grade did you start coding, in school?

I was never thought coding in school so had to go and learn Java myself throughout secondary school til I got my place in college then it all started to click from there.

We only worked on pseudocode only in the last year of school, fortunately I went into computer engineer college. Only then I first met programming languages. I wish I started learning earlier!

Honestly, most schools, like mine, don't teach computer programming in any way, shape, or form.  If you want to get into coding before college, I recommend you just take your own initiative to become a programmer and learn from the internet.  Not only is this the largest database of information anywhere, but you can learn from amazing teachers, like Bucky, that you would never find in a classroom setting.

I started learning program after 6 or 7 month when I actually started to fall in love with computer at age 16 and prior to that I didnt had much interest in computer.

I started in college in my freshman year. Prior to that, I had no programming experience. It is never too late to learn.

Thanks for all the advice, I thought I was missing out on a better school but I can see that you all start independently, which is great to know!
