Great programming skills as a child

How can I get a great programmer being a child?

Find something that you want to create with code, and create it.

When we create real things — we learn the most. Just “reading a book” is ok, but is thousands of times less effective than creating something real.

Figure out a project, grab a book, use the internet and get cracking, child!

Not a long answer, but worked really, really well as a teenager for me.
