Hey guys!

Does anyone have a suggestion on where to learn GDScript completely from scratch? I'm not very familliar with programming languages, and I find the documentation on the Godot website a little bit hard to understand as I don't have any previous knowledge on programming. If someone knows of any course or tutorials, I'll be glad to check out!

Have you looked at the tutorials from Kids Can Code? While they're a bit older, they still provide a good basis for learning GDscript, as well as the engine. Even better, they have a presence on this site, as well as the Godot Discord channel. So they can answer your questions about the tutorials.

Godot has visual scripting, where you connect ' boxes ' with code-words, instead of writing things . . . When you know the name of the visual script boxes, you also know a lot of the code words, for later writing . . .

Visual script is an excellent place to start learning making games, without knowing how to code very much, or at all . . .

Tutorials . . .

Link, to Visual script ( drag-and-drop beginner coding, or for artists, prototypes ) . .

Be aware GDScript is as fast, as visual scripting almost, not much difference there . . .

I made this game entirely using VISUALS SCRIPT, see post above, so you can make pretty cool stuff, using this . .

Also, join, if you have any questions, the mods there are really awesome, very patient, and know a LOT, of Visual scripting stuff, they're really good . . .

Also, on my youtube channel, there are tutorials for various things, in Visual Scripting, for Godot, it just became better, for Godot 3.2, as well, nicer interface <3

So, you don't need to code, at all, WRITE code, but using visual script, you will SLOWLY learn to THINK, in code, because you use IF, WHILE, SWITCH, boxes, in visual script, that work like code . . .
