I have only some base in c ++ and I tried the book SFML game development but I will never have the speed and the automatisms of a real programmer.
My strength is rather in the ideas of games (playability, design, etc ...). I wish like you, agree on a project, develop it well and see what happens next. (Always by concerting and taking time together to make the game really a pleasure for the user).
