I’m currently studying Python Object Oriented programming and got to a point where logic and syntax are the least of my problems. I always get to a stage where I’m completely lost between modules, classes, objects and a sea of “selfs”.
I’m not doing anything too complicated, just small projects for practice, but I think I would benefit from planning. My mental processes are highly disorganized (ADHD) and I need all the help I can get with that.
I don’t need an automated tool (even though it might come in handy) -- sketching things out on paper is probably enough.
I only know about UML, which seems fine. Can anyone recommend a tutorial about this and other tools?
Edit to link my last attempt at following a tutorial:
This is the last tutorial I tried to follow, a Pygame project from the book
Python Crash Course 2ed. Following tutorials is frequently mostly typing, so what I achieved there is not a real representation of my abilities -- I would not be able to do something like that on my own. In fact, I failed to answer the latest exercises, which were basically smaller versions of this project.
My problem is not with syntax and the basics of how OOP works, but rather with memory and organization of information.
