What are the typical skills of a computer programmer?

I understand there are probably many different kinds of computer programmer. I am interested in the creation of applications, websites and what is involved in starting and maintaining large online services such as Instagram, SpringPad, Vimeo etc. and how these franchises began before they became successful. What skills, programming languages etc. are typically expected of someone involved in the above fields? Where can I go to learn these skills, or learn which ones are most applicable to my interests? Thanks in advance.
