The thing I notice about people who are frustrated about how difficult it is to code is that they don't give themselves enough time. Learning how to code, like any good craft, takes time and that's something most people cannot understand because of all the flashy and motivating books and tutorials out there. "Learn Ruby on Rails in 24 hours blablabla". I would say 3 years is a good start for the total beginner.
