Programing and where to start

| I want to make my pc do things automatically, or make simple programs to make my life easier in general. Does anyone know where I should start

| Install Arch Linux from scratch and install whatever you want for your own personalized system. Use the arch wiki to get started.

| Can you make a program about sex, once you get started? I would greatly appreciate having more sex programs out in the wild for me to use.

Of course you can, whatever you can write it will work as long as you do it correctly.

| >>7300b6 Oh, I was not generalizing in that question of mine. I was telling OP directly to make one as soon as OP gets started, because sex is so interesting.

| >>8edfea ah ok. Understood. and yes sex is very interesting, I'm sure of it.

| >>7300b6 Are you a coding master? Can you program me to have sex with you? Sex is the only programming language I know.

extremely based

| Serious answer: Python is easy to learn and you can really quickly write programs to automate things

| Python is indeed good.
Just, don't get anywhere near JavaScript, and don't trust people who tell you to learn with it. It's nothing more than a sort of weird sect at this point and I just keep on people luring beginners into learning it. Don't, except if you want to be bad at programming.

| C

| >>8edfea
Yes. we will have all the sex we want

| Something I have noticed with what little I have done, is do not fear doing things backwards literally. Sometimes you have to start at the end of a problem and work backward.
I would personally suggest against learning C or it's derivatives as a first language. Lua is nice IMO, but I'm not sure what other people thing. Lisp has weird structure, but I use it for work, so I know it's decent enough.

| Lua isn't bad but it counts from 1 instead of 0 like every other programing language

| >>592983
it's easy, forgiving, there are a ton of resources about it online and it's probably the most useful language you can learn
i've got a bunch of python scripts everywhere to do mundane computer shit for me
