Do you code?
What languages do you know?
How long have you been at it?
Any advice?

I used to do BASIC a long time ago, I've since needed to some relearning. Python is good for beginners. A lot of people will say some version of C. My suggestion is get a good environment/compiler ( I think they're still called that) that will pick up a lot of syntax errors and such. RUBY on the rails is good as well. If I remember correctly you can run a chunk of code to see if it does what you think it should do right off the bat instead of having to compile it and debug.

I can bullshit my way through some HTML but that's about it. Maybe some Javascript because I did get good at that once upon a time, and Actionscript but that's related to a dead media.

One thing that surprises me is I never got into LUA scripting. Probably because with most things it takes retarded amounts of code to do basic shit, and barring very special cases it's usually more effective to modify existing code.


Honestly, unless you're trying to sell the code, enjoy the challenge, or can't find quite what you're looking for, there's no point doing it yourself.
