How hard, difficult or frustrating was for you to finally feel comfortable programming anything you want in your area?

I'm learning python but I would like to reach an expertise level good enough to feel pretty confident on my skills, not the best maybe but good enough to know i can program whatever I want. And sometimes, most times, it is pretty frustrating. Looking for a bit of motivation to keep going. Greetings and thanks in advance, also if you could tell any experience you had while learning it'd be great.

Hugo Bustamante Hope this will give you some motivation and will help you pursue what you want in future. I just graduated in July and as long as I was in college I knew nothing about programming at all. I always used to skip classes and score low in exams. You want to know how bad I was? "I couldn't write a program to copy one array to another", that bad I was. But when I graduated I realized that every other company was looking for programmers and people with good logic building skills. So I dived into C language, then went on to learn little bit of C++, Linux and operating systems as well. Believe me it's pretty hard in the beginning but you have to find motivation from within to move on. Now it's been just 4 months from when I started and I'm proud to be where I am today. I'm learning java now for my 1st job. So just push yourself, you will make it.

I am learning programming on my own. I felt like Avinesh that after a few months in you start to feel more confident. Probably good to expect that there will *always* be stuff you're not confident about. You just need to become confident in your googling skill and your ability to figure out stuff in the end.

Don't wait to feel comfortable before you post, comfortable means slow. Post codes as you learn, this will keep you trying to improve from your last code - techniques, knowledge, tricks, showcase what you have. Others may learn from you, and you will learn from others. I am still very much a learner
