New user question about programming languages


#1

Hello ,
I’ve just bought a license for appstudio v6.
I’m also new to programming ; my questions are :
a) I have a few books about visual basic 6.0. Are they still relevant for appstudio ( which supports the basic language ) ?
b) Or , because I’m new , should I just focus on the javascript language ?
Thanks for your insight !

I would start with JavaScript. VB is essentially a dead language these days, while JavaScript is eating the world. See Attwood’s Law: “Any application that can be written in JavaScript, will eventually be written in JavaScript.”

You’ll find lots of online resources for JavaScript. AppStudio has many samples you can look at as well.

Don’t hesitate to ask questions here - it’s newbie friendly. :slight_smile:
