[QUOTE=GalaxiomAtHome;1060742]There are many aspects to coding. The aspect you require depends on what you are trying to achieve at the time.
Consequently there is no simpleton's guide. Every project requires research to discover the techniques required and this seems incredibly daunting. Get used to it.
Over time the developer acquires more and more pieces so less and less reseach is required for each new project but as far as I can tell there is always more to learn.
The more you know the more you will realise you don't know yet and this goes on for years. Experience is your teacher
Thank you - very wise words i guess. I just feel as though there seems no easy place to start - its like its almost Da Vinci code - a secret society only certain people having the knowledge - i so want to learn but know one willing to teach.
