I feel like I’m in another pickle.
I’ve been stuck for a while in the “potential to make” stage. I know loops. I know conditionals. I know how to make sprites. But when I try to meld them together to make projects, I get stuck.
Today I was trying to figure out how to make buttons but I couldn’t get a grip on the buttons in the “Sounds Plus” example. Not only that, I get overwhelmed by possible routes I could take when programming stuff like Game Logic or Graphical Displays. Even a simple text game like Hunt The Wumpus suddenly becomes a mountain of work, thanks to the graphics-oriented programming in Codea.
Maybe I’m just not built for programming. I’ve always been on the more “artistic” side of things.
Another big problem I see with the programming world is that barely anyone wants to make tutorials for people in this sort of stage: Mid-Range Understanding. It’s either “Never Programmed Before” or “Knows Pretty Much Everything”.
Can someone please point me to some tutorials along that sort of path, or just flat out tell me “You shouldn’t be programming?”
