I've always been interested in computers but my desire to learn how to program has grown stronger and stronger. I've been learning to code on my own through resources such as Codecademy.com, Khanacademy.com and just reading through forums and blogs. I have a pretty good understanding of common computer programming concepts although I pretty much only know a decent amount of Lua. I've looked into Java, JavaScript/HTML/CSS, Python, C, C++, and several other languages but I've pretty much learned everything thus far from Codecademy.com and Khanacademy.com along with a lot of hours spent playing with Lua in modded Minecraft with Daniel Ratcliffe's mod, Computercraft, which adds programmable computers and 'robots' (turtles).I'm reaching a point that it's became hard for me to continue to progress due to scarce knowledge of learning resources or any personal acquaintances that know any coding. sample Lua Computercraft script, which isn't anywhere close to impressive although it does work. I wanted to post that script in a question and ask for feedback because I believe I'm missing some programming concepts that I'm sure I need more practice with and would make my scripts a lot cleaner and shorter, as well as easier to write. It builds a structure and can repair it as well but it doesn't tell the user what materials to supply or give any directions. I've written a few Computercraft display scripts but they we're easier to accomplish. Anyways I am just looking for better resources for helping me further my knowledge, develop skills, and understand programming better because, Computercraft doesn't seem like the best way to learn a language and I would like to learn a programming language once I feel like I've got a better understanding of Lua, since it's just a scripting language. Thanks for reading!
