    start with something easier, much easier. Just try to think of something basic to automate or something. Like download your emails and put them in a spreadsheet or something i don't know. When i started i just made a few basic calculators for some stock market stuff I was into at the time

    Start with doing programming that requires no math skills such as scripting.

      This, also snake, and pong are cool
      Personally I'd start with snake and then build an ai for it

    You should just mod an existing game. Then you can focus on the aesthetics and gameplay while having a pre-existing game to build with.

    >>stop programming
    if only more people were like this... that would purge 90% of the software engineering world and force universities to actually teach people beyond for loops and hello world with ACTUAL skill tests where you're REJECTED when you fail, not sent to google or facebook on a recommendations...
    I can imagine a world where I don't have to teach smart pointers to C++ devs with 30 years of experience at top500 companies, I would be the happiest dev on the planet...

        it happened literally yesterday, I also had to explain how to use initialisation_list, this person is leaving soon to work in aerospace...
        this is pure insanity, how did she (yes, a wemyn) pass the technical evaluation and how are they expecting her to write safe C++ code...
        something is definitely wrong with the software industry

    what do? All I want is something that generates a per-month calendar page with notes when a specific day is the last tuesday of october. Or whatever.
