  1. Some people were saying that PG is looking for SOURCE CODERS.

    I am unsure what all that entails yet, and I'd be willing to learn.

    I'd love to learn how to code Source/LUA BUT don't know where to OFFICIALLY start.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance
    -Tobiee

    P.S. I wanna be more useful, knowledge is power!

  7. Source games use Lua, minecraft plugins/mods use Java. So if they are looking for Source Coders, I am guessing it will most likely be Lua you will have to know. Easiest language to learn honestly. :)

    Depending on how old you are I know some high schools offer Computer Science A courses which will award you college credits as well as general coding information in the form of JAVA but in reality the only way to learn how to code is through repetition and persistence. Look at the Lua wiki and start playing with functions.

    Good luck and feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

    I saw that you guys were talking about general programming as-well on here. When I started to program I first learned C++. I will say that Java is one of the easiest programming languages to learn as someone who is just starting out. Java and any other programming language is very similar how it works is once you master one you can easily learn a new one the only thing that becomes bother some is creating new loops.

    Code:
    Java:
    for(int i = 1; i<=10; i++)
          System.out.println(i);
    Code:
    Lua:
    for i = 1, 10,1 do
          print(i) 
    end

  15. I'd say for any beginning programmer, they should learn vb.NET. It is a language designed to get you into the programming world. Though, the BASIC syntax is unlike that of C++ or any C-related languages.
