Yeah Lizard-13 is so awesome also ddebrahim, without their help over the last year I wouldn't be here just releasing my first game and always learning new stuff and failling a lot (I mean really a lot) and so many many sleepless nights (months without a good sleep just to do what I enjoy).
I remember when I started, I didn't know how to save and I just decided to quit this and just leave and never comeback to gdevelop because I was feeling really bad but then ddebrahim and Lizard-13 answered my question about saving and I learned how to do it after a week I think, It was the best feeling ever and from then I just decided that I'll never quit
For me I'd say just open Gdevelop5 and dive into it, start with your imagination, start playing with events and just combine, start with one event and know what it does then you'll have some knowledge where to start, don't know something ? Stuck on something ? Just ask here, I've looked for years for people who really respect and help each other with their heart and I can tell you that they are definitely here, this community is the greatest thing that happened to my life, the best thing is that they don't just help because it's help, when they see that you're serious about your question and really need to fix it, they don't give you the code in a gift box, they make you understand it very well so that you can use anytime you need.
Just start playing with the program until you start playing your own game
It took me around 5 months to make my first game and another 7 months before to learn what i can also another year and a half just to find this great engine (Gdevelop5), it's the greatest thing I've seen, so simple to use yet so perfect in what it does. And after all that I'm just a beginner, there is a lot more to learn with time, and I'm ready for it
Just dive in and you can do it
