    I've done some courses in the past regarding game development and specially for the GameMaker engine and Unity.

    After watching some videos and youtubers going from GameMaker to Godot I decided to give a go to Godot. I did my research and conclude that the best platform to learn Godot is the one from GDQuest.

    I believe that they are working in Godot since day one. One of the benefits is that they keep the code updated for newer versions of Godot.

    PROS:

    • The videos are not very long everything is organized in modules. If you really want to learn and take notes of what your are doing its best to have small videos. Since everything is organized its easier to keep an account of what you are following.
    • If you have a question you will get an answer. Nathan answered all my questions in very short delays. This is not a norm in other learning platforms.
    • Assignments to test your skills and to see if you are learning.
    • You can download the videos if you don't have a very good internet connection.

    CONS:

    At some points GODOT version changes or there are new solutions for a game mechanic. A new video comes and you can be kinda lost because the code changed in relation with what you've done. Well this can be frustrating but at the same time you will learn how to think and find solutions.

    CONCLUSION:

    Very good first entry into Godot. At some points it can be confusing but definitely deserves 5 stars.
