    Bolt does not require programming skills to get started with, but using it is very similar to programming right now. Bolt is a C# visualizer that abstracts some of the lower level complexity away. For example, you don't need to learn about namespaces, classes, interfaces and other things that exist in C#. In Bolt, some of these things don't exist at all conceptually or are simplified for the end user and accessible as regular nodes. Together with the Fuzzy finder and real time editable graphs in Play mode, Bolt is a great way of learning to code in Unity.

    Visual Scripting is still coding at the end of the day though, just a different kind. Unity do have plans to implement lots of high-level nodes down the road so Bolt/UVS will become less C# like and more akin to Blueprints or even Playmaker.
