    Learn the basics of C# first , then you can get your hands on a browser engine like chromium and build your app around it

    Sure , you can access it in C++ , but Is a little harder . But if you already know how to code C++ it will be easy . Else..i suggest using the C# wrapper.

    I already know a lot of python and have scraped almost a million webpages with that, but can't create a decent mobile application even for myself, so I tough I should go deeper.

    I read that the games are mostly written in c++, and it's used to create drivers for hardware and so on, so I decided to try c++. But started last week, no warm start over in c#

    Thanks ;)

    your right c++ is used for most game development. But your talking AAA rated games by big studios, think HALO, COD, Destiny, Oblivion. Most mobile games, apps, computer games, are build in c#, java, javascript or some combination of them. C++ is very user unfriendly. If you learn c++ first, its the hardest to learn and the rest are easy after. C# is an easier language to learn, more user friendly, and less learning time.

    Yeah most of them are C++ written but that's for going as low as they can in coding, as .NET might now expose all the stuff needed for handling OPENGL and all sort of graphic programming stuff. Further , as of today , you will have a much harder time developing a GUI app under C++ than C#. .NET is a really powerfull framework if you don't need low level stuff. Have a read on CefSharp or Cefglue ( the .NET C# wrappers for chromium ), but I will tell you that they are very poor documented sadly . Good Luck

    There are two kinds of bots:
    - The bots that use real browsers. As someone mentioned before, your best choice is to go with .NET Framework and CefGlue and GeckoFX. This one is more suitable for automating complex tasks like creating accounts and posting on heavily used Javascript sites like Weebly ...
    - The bots that send low level HTTP requests. This one is much faster and more suitable for tasks like scraping sites (think ScrapeBox). If you go this route, I recommend Golang from Google. There are two basic components of this bot: sending request and parsing the response. HTTP requests are very simple using Golang (Google it) and parsing the HTML cannot even be easier with GoQuery. One important consideration is multi-threading. You can't go wrong with the inherent support of Golang for concurrency.

    Programming languages take many months or even years to master. Building a bot requires the coder to have a solid foundation in the language they wish to build the bot in. This isn't something you'll learn overnight, or in a month, or two or hell, even three.

    You need to first build a solid foundation and learn the language itself properly before even considering building a bot of any sort.

    If you're open to a different language, Python is pretty fucking awesome.

    Learn C#/VB.NET and practice multi threading with Httpwebrequest (Post/Get Data)
    You'll be capable to write any bots you want in a easy way. I think when I started to learn C#, in two weeks I was already in CPA scheme with the best looking fake softwares and now I consider myself a good enough programmer that could write nearly whatever he wants. Just focus and study, don't think only about money, think about your evolution and always try to surpass your previous work everyday. Good luck!

    Yeah, if you're trying to start out with something that's functional right now python is probably your best bet.

    What's your reason behind C?
