I've just found this community and am on Day One of #startcoding. I recently started my journey into CompSci with the EdX course "CS50T" (I recommend it for anyone who's a total beginner!). The final assignment is creating something using MIT's Scratch. Of course I want to learn how to actually code, but being able to see something right away is great. I think I might make my "mission goal" to get this simple game working well and then re-create it using a game engine and code. Would anyone have advice on choosing a language for gamedev?
