    alright...
    I wanna start out in making my own bot




    this is a journal of a noob like me who is making his own bot from scratch with no prior knowledge in coding...
    right now I am downloading visual basic express...(it will take some time since I'm in banglade.sh and the net I'm using is veeery slow...)

    anyway I will keep this updated...

    Anyone who wuold like to give me heads ups or point me in the right direction or simply support me by sugesting me things and such I will be happy to listen... :)

    I'm sorry if this post may sound corny or whatever...or if I'm too noob for your standards....if so delete this post and bann me...
    At least I will be able to say well I'm putting my efforts in it :)...

    good luck i'm interested in creating bots too,but i have problem as next year i'll study visual basic and i wanted to learn c++ (i have basic knowledge) so i'm not sure to try code in VB or c++ i think i'll choose VB, because it's easy

    First of all Learn Basic C# which will make you friendly what is data type,vaiables,loops etc then move to OOP Languages C++,Php etc ;)

    I recommend to Code C++ Sockets is faster and it's a long way to made any bot as you are beginner why not try to make Web based Application first it will be good to start

    Yeah defiantly start on C#, or if you want to start really simple head over to http://www.codecademy.com/ when I was at school doing computing we used this to start off... And it helped me get a grasp of coding, it is javascript which is quite similar to C#.

    C++ and PHP are the most used when it comes to YouTube bots. Just throwing that out there.

    I had experience learning JAVA/C++/C before in my college.. but damn..rarely used and now most have forgotten.

    Maybe I should start to study it back, and apply it.

    I've tried at least a dozen languages over the years and I think python is simply the best for writing bots, especially if you can't afford 3rd party libraries, etc...
    It's amazing how you can easily map complex ideas into code in just a few minutes with python, it's like explaining your thoughts to a friend. I really recommend it.

    Gotta agree, python is pretty cool to create bots especially if they stay on your pc. Also several ways to compile it and embed it into lower level languages that's pretty nice for deployment.

    Ok finished installing visual basic...since I have classes I sill be back this afternoon...after a few hours...and start studying...so far no obstacles encountered (heheheh... just wait and seee...)
    any way...you got me kinda confused...should I try python??or should go for C++...I was all set to start learning visual basic...but now I'm a bit confused...

    so here's the situation
    just downloaded visual basic...
    but very confused about which language to learn..

    I may point out that the bot will not be public...it will be used strictly for personal uses...and no I won't be making money outta it...I just want my personal goals achieved with it... :)

    Straight off C++ learning would kill even some of the best minds, you're probably better getting to grips with C# or VB, although I wouldn't learn VB myself because I think its a lower form of coding (No offence to anyone who uses VB).

    Never used Python, give it a look i've seen some good bots coded in Python.

    allright...they do make it look like its something really hard...in fact it is... :p...but with time it will become easy...
    now I started this project on visual basic express 2010...
    I made this window with a start bottom and an "Put link here" box...
    now I am a bit lost...
    is there anyway you could point me to any helpfull resources that explains the basics of visual basic??
    the ones I found on google are not helping me that much...
