Anyway, you made the admirable step of starting to learn to code. Don't be discouraged that it's going slowly at the start; it always goes slowly at the start, especially if you're diving into the deep end by examining a finished codebase! But plenty of people have learned to code solely by working on Angband or one of its variants. Keep at it, ask questions, and don't try to put an artificial deadline on your project. This is a hobby, so do it when you can, and good luck!
