Programmer job is just programming based on 1 or more programming languages.

Some programming languages are easier to learn and understand than others, but all share some fundamentals and common stuff. If you can comprehend the common stuff like the common structures, logics (if, else, for, while, operators, usage of functions, variables, class, objects, etc), then it won't be hard at all.

So long as you have a computer that can access to Internet, you can learn online, millions of websites on various programming languages, Youtube can also help provided you find the correct channel/user/uploader.

Usually for dummies/beginners/someone who wants to start off programming, I would recommend W3Schools Online and learn from there. It is newbie friendly.

Also ask yourself whether you want to work for company to do programming work for them or you want to be freelancer? Got difference because if work in a company, you can learn how one company's way of doing the programming as some have certain structures and policy/guidelines to follow. Freelancer type would be follow your own instinct, follow your guts, follow your feelings, can ended up doing things wrongly. But you can't learn without making mistakes and programmers make mistake and learn from them and repeat this cycle again and again until improvise further.

Paywise? I think quite good lor, depends on big or small company. If company stable, then you get your payslip monthly (and hopefully on time too).
