I'm a artist, not a programmer. I can use and understand well the Playmaker and all logics, but sometimes i get stuck for not having a basic knowledge (i think) and it takes more time to find a solution for relatively simple things.
I end up learning something new in this way, but do not know if it's the best way.

I would like to learn something to use together with the Playmaker to help better understand things and get out problems easily, at least have a basic programming knowledge, i believe this will help a lot

Which programming language is most suitable to start and where can i start? any suggestions for books, videos, web sites ?

For Unity. Just learn C#. Don't waste time learning anything else.

Sources to learn? Too many. A simple YouTube/Google search will give you an Overwhelming amount of tuts. It'll be hard choosing which one to study. But choose a few and get to focusing (:

Hi,

 Agree, go for c#, forget js, because you'll struggle with online docs.

 for c#, simply google for any of your issues appending "c#" to your search and you'll find your sources! It's my secret weapon :) you'll find examples and samples of anything for anything!! if you have a problem chances are ( like cosmic stats) that someone else referenced it online somewhere.

Two very important links that I personnaly always fall back to:

http://www.dotnetperls.com/

also, make sure you always check out Stackoverflow:

http://stackoverflow.com/

and browse/ask for questions, it's very rewarding.

Bye,

 Jean

If you want to make something simple in c#, then you probably want to start with this tutorial.
