This video introduces the viewer to the basics of coding, with an emphasis on the differences between scripting languages and programming languages. It covers topics such as arithmetic, logic, functions, and variables, and provides a basic overview of a programming language.

  • 00:00:00 In this video, an introduction to coding is given, with emphasis on the difference between scripting languages and programming languages. Basic arithmetic is introduced, and then logic is explained in terms of instructional and mathematical logic. The use of functions and variables is then introduced, with an example of a video game. Finally, the basics of a programming language are covered.
  • 00:05:00 Coding is the process of creating and using code to control and/or manipulate computer systems. It can be seen as a way of abstracting complex mathematical operations down to a more manageable level. In order to be good at coding, you don't need to be a math expert, but you do need to be able to understand and write basic instructions in a modern programming language.
  • 00:10:00 In this 1-minute video, the author introduces coding, discussing how to navigate through data in a programming language. Most languages follow this kind of syntax: two brackets indicate a function, with extra information inside of them to give the function more data. The author then demonstrates this method of accessing data in a scene by moving to a different program, blender, where he has a cube and an active console. He shows how to get a selected object in the scene, by entering bpy dog context or active underscore object. Next, he demonstrates benda's autocomplete system by entering a period after an object and pressing ctrl+space. He then moves on to talking about specificity and the order of operations. He talks about how to be specific, by breaking a complex task down into simple steps, and how to avoid obscurity. He finishes the video by discussing object orientation, which is usually associated with languages. He then talks about how specificity and the order of operations will vary depending on what the author is working on.
  • 00:15:00 In this video, the presenter discusses how coding works, and how it can be used to create more instructional programs. He also discusses some exceptions to this process, and ends the video by providing a link to his social media and discord accounts.
