I would take some online courses. For me it was mostly looking at other peoples code and seeing how things work. Then creating something similar or extending an existing piece of software.

It depends on what you consider "programming". I, at first thought programming was just coding but in the end I've realized it's more about solving problems in the best way possible instead of typing code.
The best way to start in my opinion is to get some fundamentals with C++ of conditional statements, loops and data structures.
