Get help using Construct 2

Hello friends
This is my first thread on Construct 2 forums, just purchased it a couple of days back.

I need to start coding and aim to learn it by a year, till then I will be making simple games without coding and keep enhancing my software skills.

What should be my first step? I have no idea how I can code in construct 2 and from where should I start?

Can I just get a basic idea of how should I start with coding?

I have no knowledge about coding, programming,etc. Will have to start from scratch.

There is no coding in C2. If you're talking about learning html5 then look for some tutorials on the web.

First step to learn how to use Construct2 should probably be following the beginners tutorials.

After completing those, you understand the basics of working with Construct2. For finding out specific things, there is the manual and the forum search. If that doesn't get you enough to work on, there's always the option to ask for help in this "How do I section"

There is but little to no coding in Construct 2..
The graphical user interface and compiling engine from construct 2 does that for you.

After developing something you can choose to export it to a desired platform, where the actual code and scripts will be generated for you based on your development.

You do however, will get to understand wat certain comon called functions/methods/expressions do, which are quite general to most modern programming languages.

A good example being "for each".

Thanks a lot for all your replies.
So basically I can make any kind of 2d games with construct without coding or programming?

I m looking forward to make a 2d open world game, which is going to be my future project. Is it actually possible to get all the complex elements going without any coding?

In my opinion, using Construct 2 is coding, just doing it in a different way. You will learn many coding concepts etc but without the hassles of syntax errors, memorizing syntax, etc
