What is the best route to become a computer programmer?
So many ppl have told me that if you take computer science in university it's going to be 90% theory and you'll barely learn any actual "coding" at all.
So, I am left wondering, what do you guys (established programmers and coders) think the best route is for a newbie to learn how to code/program? For someone who wants to specialize in the web / android-ios mobile app categories
-is it college? if so which program?
-is it a "coding bootcamp"?
-is it self learn?
What do you guys suggest?
