What is the approximate timeline in going from “Zero to Hero”? I am a bit skeptical about articles that try to convey the idea that learning a programming language is something that is very easy.

Peter Norvig here is warning against books or articles that try to give a wrong information about the timeline for learning a programming langauge.

It takes lots of time to become a good programmer.
