What programming language should I learn?

Postby digicube » October 2nd, 2015, 7:35 am

Never code before but have design a few vassal modules. What programming language should I learn to be a better vassal designer? Java, Java script, etc? Any online websites to recommend? I know about codeschool.com.

That depends on what you want to design for---the current version of
VASSAL, or the next one. If you want to write custom classes for V3.2,
you need to learn Java. If you want to write custom code for V4, the
plan is that you'll need JavaScript (which has nothing whatsoever to
do with Java).

You should learn Java programming language first.
