The Best Way To Learn To Program

I created this site as a way for people to post errors, get responses, and learn in general. I have been a sysadmin in some sort of capacity for going on 10 years now and am just getting around to tackling being a programmer. Currently I have some shell scripting experience but overall I am just not a programmer. I doubt this will get many responses right away since the site is so new but I wanted feedback on what peoples opinion on the path someone should take to become a programmer. I am mad at myself for not jumping into this earlier but better late than never. I have decided to learn using Ruby and technically Ruby on Rails.
