Initially, it wasn't pretty, and I have been told about 300 times to go watch tutorials when asking for help in discord... while trying to do something I was following in a tutorial.
Trying to program starting out is like trying to walk down a hallway where you can't see the doors or windows on either side of you. Everyone else around you is screaming dude just turn the knob, you sit all puzzled, "What knob?" All that aside I feel things are going much smoother now about three months into this. I still struggle from time to time with super simple stuff like GetComponent while on the other hand being able to write a functioning weather system based on coroutines (timers).
Actually being from an art background is one of the reasons I wanted to start this blog. I don't feel like an artist going into programming is a story I hear as much as maybe a programmer spiffing up his art skill or just plain out hiring a starving desperate artist to do the work for him.
I wanted to share with you a few of my achievements in the past week.
Progress often feels like you are surrounded by obstacles eager to kill you while you struggle to get moving.
And just when you feel like you are finally moving you seem to hit a red light every 3 seconds.
At the end of the day though you know you have to just get back up tomorrow and keep on swimming.
Obviously, that is the only way you will ever open doors to opportunity!
