Where to start?
This has propably been asked a few times before, but I seem to be unable to find the answer. Apologies in advance, if I'm punishing a dead horse
Having used computers for gaming and work since I was 8, I figured out, after starting to use Linux, that I have close to no idea about how to build my own software. This annoys me, as i can build stuff in all my other hobbies. So, I figured it was time to learn it now. I've looked at numerous guides and tutorials but they all lack what I find most important in a tutorial, a product. So, now I have decided that I want to create two small programs to use when I'm playing D&D.
First one is a diceroller, the second is a character creator (since I can find neither of these for linux ). If it isn't too difficult, I'd like to make both with a Gnome GUI. So, the question is:
Bearing in mind that I have basically no programming experience, except for some very basic HTML and a little macro-writing in WoW and SWG, what languages would be well suited for these tasks?
Thanks in advance.
