Advanced Programming - Possible to learn yourself?

I'd love to pick up on an advanced programming language without the need of having to go on a course at college. Do you think it would be realistic to be able to do this without the assistance of a tutor?

Yes, I have done some fairly advanced programming, and I have taught myself everything.

Re: Advanced Programming - Possible to learn yourself?

There are a lot of online advanced courses online. The thing is that the best ones are not for free. But who knows, maybe you can find something nice even without money...

Re: Advanced Programming - Possible to learn yourself?

Thanks both for the suggestions. What languages have you both learned without the need of a tutor? I've been looking at C++, is it quite a good and hard language to learn? Is it the most widely used programming language?

One can learn virtually anything,if he/she dedicates his attention to it! so be it a computer language or any hobby like playing an instrument it can be learnt on your own.

If you want to learn a programming language i would recommend you w3schools which is a great site for starters.If you want to get into intermediate/advance level then i would suggest you to check out lynda.com videos for learning in depth programming and development.
