Hey! My name is Dan. I’ve wanted to be a developer for a while now and recently started watching Brackey’s C# tutorial and I’m kind of getting the hang of it (but at the same time not at all someone please help me).

I actually have a few ideas for mods for a game I like called Stardew Valley! So if any SMAPI modders are here any tips you have would be greatly appreciated! I think it’s great Brackeys not only provides free tutorials (that teach you well) but also host a forum for people to discuss and help other with their games and programs, I’m very happy to be joining the community and maybe I’ll actually get good at this 😀

I think I get your sentiment about getting the hanging of it, but at the same time not at all…I started programming in 1995 because I wanted to make games. A lot has happened since then, but for 8 years hardcore I was into C++. That taught me a lot…a lot that you mostly won’t learn these days because it’s prohibitive to really do much in C++. Having said that however, that sense of feelings like you are getting the hang of it, might be in terms of getting the hang of reproducing what you are being shown in the videos.

If you get where you can create your own things based on a solid understanding of the various concepts you’ve learned, that will be a more clear indicator. I feel like when you say “at the same time not at all” might be when you get some of the tutorials done and it works, and maybe you try to experiment and suddenly nothing seems to work like you expect. I could be off here, but I remember my own trials and tribulations and it feels like that might be the case.

In any case, there is a lot to learn and being exposed only to the visual aspects related to Unity can really limited what you can learn overall. But it is still possible, you just have to hold out.
