Since putting out a resource guide about where to start with audio programming, I’ve had a quite a few people reach out. Here’s some of what they say:
“I understand the basics of programming and of audio processing but I have a hard time mentally justifying diving deeper”
“[I’m struggling] with making the connection between function and purpose for audio programming”
“I seem to be completely surrounded by options and directions and I’m not sure what path to take”
“My current biggest frustration is finding out how to start”
All of these comments seem to be summed up best by that last one – lots of people are interested, but are so overwhelmed that starting seems to be too much work. Or, as the first example states – “it’s hard to mentally justify”.
Because if someone just said “Start here, do this one action” it would be easy, right?
Instead, most of you are doing some mental cost/benefit math hoping to be certain of your return on investment.
I can’t answer what you specifically are looking for as “a good return” – it’s probably that you want a job, or money. But it could be something different.
I can tell you two things, however:
- How to make starting easy, and get a path for how to continue
- What your ROI is, even if it’s not immediate money, and why that’s worth your time
