Hello gentlemen and gentlewomen! I am in dire need of your assistance!
Recently, I have been trying to delve into the world of video game programming, and was wondering if I could get some straight-forward advice and step-by-step assistance as to how to get started.
To be brief, I have no experience with programming whatsoever (I'm currently trying to learn the "language" of Java and understand terms such as "variable" and "string" and "double." Is learning terms like these relevant if I were to delve into video game programming or am I wasting time?). I have no background in computer science, whatsoever, to be honest.
Really, all I've got is the desire and a lot of free time to learn. So basically, I'm asking you all what the heck should I be learning!!! Where's the best place to start, and where should I go from there?
Thank you for your time, and best of luck to all of you!
