If this is a retirement hobby, you might want to look into going to a local community college to take classes in this. It's a great way to meet new people, and get one-on-one help. If you're above a certain age, you can get discount prices...sometimes even free.

I've been a self-study kind of guy most of my life. I'm not much younger than you, and as I age I find the ability to interact with others to be an important consideration. Coding is a solitary undertaking, so learning to do it with others not only makes learning easier, it also keeps the coder from having cabin fever.
