From selfish point of view - yes. But others have their own lives and their own limited time. Going to forum or support without doing own research is happening way too often.
This is the point that should be typed with bold. But the difference between “being able” and “actually doing” is the key. Unfortunately 90% of people are “takers”. Despite being able to help, they don’t want to spend their “most precious commodity” while thinking that everybody else should give their “precious commodity”.
For what it is worth I have not asked ANY SINGLE C/C++ programming question in my life. I’ve learned everything I know about programming without anybody’s help and it was in pre-internet era and Google did not exist. The method is called trial and error. At the age of 13 I read books about TTL logic and I was barely understanding 10% of it. But it was fascinating because I learned that few transistors connected into AND/OR/NOT gates can do magical things like adding binary numbers, counting, comparing them. Programming was a magical mistery word. Back then Poland was “behind the curtain” and it was real challenge to get books or worse yet any ICs to tinker with hardware. Yet I bought some chips at black market (desoldered from some broken PCBs) and build a microprocessor system and digital synthesiser myself based on Z80 CPU. Two-sided printed circuit was drawn by hand with some water-resistant marker (another nearly impossible to buy item back then in PL). No design “tools”. Just had to do everything by hand and memorizing thousands of connections. That was at the beginning of PC Era (1987). When I went to University at 19, I already knew more about programming than average graduate student. And no, it was not any kind of miracle or any kind of super skill. It is just a question of time spent digging it yourself.
You may read the “Changeling: The Autobiography of Mike Oldfield” book. Why did he become so proficient guitar player? Why he created music-industry-changing work that catapulted Richard Branson’s Virgin business at the age of 18? He just spent thousands of hours learning it all by himself. Just trying over and over the pieces that he heard. Without teacher, without help, without family support, without anything.
There is NO other way to learn anything. You need to spend YOUR time. Not some other person time.
On anecdotal note: when I first came to US and went to bookstore I was surprised to see two bookshelves filled with titles such as “How to learn to play guitar over the weekend”. Hundreds of books how to learn ANYTHING over the weekend. And I wondered who is an idiot: the author doing claims of learning this over the weekend or the buyer who believes it is possible.
