Learning to code is like raising a child.
You can´t just adopt a teenager and say your automatically a parent.
Same way that you can´t start create programs or games without knowing how to code.
Baby steps are involved, learning what the code means, trial and error are very necessary and there is no EASY way.
The hard way is the only way and the program or game you create will be your child. Your are the creator, the parent.
Paying for someone to do it is just like babysitting, you have something with you that you didn´t watch grow up but yet you are the parent.
Create value for your product by making it yourself. That will be the best way to show how important it is to you. Treat it like your child.
