Python as a scripting stepping stone
« on: November 12, 2014, 03:43:34 PM »
I have been playing with vba for Excel and Word for over 10 years but last year took a few courses online on sites like edX, Coursera, Udacity, and Codecademy, and I learned I have been doing everything all wrong, lol. The courses taught languages like Python, Ruby, Java, C#, Javascript, and a few others. I think I prefer the higher level languages and Python has to be my favorite for it's easy to use lists and dictionaries. It is very versatile, and really easy for a beginner to accomplish great things. I think COD script resembles Ruby more than Python but I would advise anyone who wants to learn more about programming to take a Python course. If you like it, you will really like it.

Well COD script is rather simple so it's similar to a few languages.

That share one or more of these properties:

dynamic typed
c style syntax
procedural.


So like it's similar to C, since that is also C style syntax and procedural but yet also very different as C has much more features.

I was actually looking up help for C when I first started with zombies, earlier this year, before I knew it wasn't C,  :-[ , oops. I was still able to script simple things without knowing what it was though. I think that says a lot about programming languages in general.
