Hi guys
I'm just starting to learn c++ (with no coding background) and being 22, i feel like it's too late.
Wish me luck.

    You started on the wrong foot.
    We , programmers , say "wish me fucking luck" . It s more expressive. But anyway. Good luck dude and welcome here

    In some ways it's harder for young people.

    Every day is a just starting day,there's so much to learn and it never stops. If it does stop you're in the wrong profession.

    @DutchmanDavid well, my main interest is making (indie) games. Right now i study software engineering in college but where i study is NOT a good  educational institution (it's basically a dump). I wanted to make games since i was like,10, but due to serious lack of educational resources i got nowhere. If you want to be a game/software developer, you better not live in iran...
    (i should mention, i don't want to learn programing JUST for games, and i don't want to look at it as a hobby)

    Well get used to learning a new language every year. It really can't be too late, logically speaking.

    Also you made a daring choice to pick C++ as first, as I did ages ago. It will be hard, let's be honest, but you do get to have a better understanding of computing in general.

    You are not even a little bit late, there is no late for learning programming languages, every year many things come up in the dev world and if some one wants to learn he has to work on it even if he is 60

    @JasoonS self discipline, not knowing what you want at that age. Personal problems, parents friends. You name it.

    Ditto what everyone else here has said. Also, I'm in my thirties and feel that way about some things. You're already a decade ahead of me.

    @joeyfigaro nice, devs always keep learning so it doesn't matter. Age is just a number.

    Age doesn't matter as long as you have passion and self-discipline. All the best.

    stay dedicated. My cousin started to learn coding at 23, he was studying electrical Engineering. Today he, 5 years later , hes a head C# developer of HP.

    Important : stick to 1 language until you master it
