Absolute intro to LLScripts
on October 1, 2008
This book is an absolute intro to Linden Scripts. The author uses the classic presentation technique of 1) Tell your audience what you are going to tell them; 2) Tell it to your audience; followed by 3) Tell your audience what you told them. If you have ever had to do a presentation to an audience, you understand what I mean.
If you think you wish to write code in Linden Scripting Language, this book gives you a very clear, easy to grasp understanding of the basic structure of the language, the method of approach to writing code, and simple but easy to follow examples.
The approach in this book may seem a bit too simple to those with extensive programming experience. But, that serves to make it a quick read for you so you can jump right into coding. For those new to programming, the approach in this book is much easier to understand than many "introductions" I've read.
The book will not make you an expert Linden Script programmer. Only practice and experience will do that. But it helps you get into the right frame of mind to understand how to view a coding problem to make it work in-life.
While you can find this information online, the book has one significant advantage. It is written text with an index. You can underline, bookmark, circle, highlight and write margin notes (it even has blank pages for your own notes) and you can use it with no electricity or web connection. That means you can read it in a doctor's waiting room, on the bus, a train, in a car (as a passenger), or in your own "library" (don't ask).
See you inlife.
