How long did it take you to grasp programming?

Recommended Posts

Only recently after reading countless tutorials multiple times have I begun to really understand how this stuff really works. I guess it took me alot longer because I basically skipped learning C++ doing console apps after getting extreamly discouraged and bored with it! For longest time I thought my programming goals would never be realized because the fundamental stuff was so incredibly boring to me. Furtunatly, I have proven myself wrong, and now I am having fun creating my own graphics. The world of Windows and OpenGL programming has sunk in to the point were I can do my own stuff instead of following tutorials! I am now very motivated to keep advancing to new things, and plan to start a big project soon. My advice to people just starting out is to just STICK TO IT. Learning all the basic C/C++ stuff is the most borring part, and once you grasp how to turn your ideas into code things will get much better. Atleast this is how it was for me! I would also like to extend my gratitude to everybody who contributes to this community. With tutorials or even just friendly advice you help is most welcomed. THANK YOU!

Hmm...inspiring. I managed to muddle my way through all of the Win32 console App tutorials (except that I did many of them as Win16 EasyWin apps in Borland C++...) but haven''t managed to get much further than that because I haven''t had time. But my congradulations to you...that first step is really the biggest.
