I didn't think this thread was still active but i guess i was wrong. Now to the replies:
No, learning begins. After you learn enough to debug the horrible code that your newbie self is going to inevitably create, then you are going to debug, refactor, or scrap it and start again. After months or a year or two, then the real development begins.
Yeah, isn't learning part of development. Anyways, i'm definitely learning. I downloaded the game engine architecture pdf and realised that making games will actually help me to make game engines.
