Question I used to do MS Visual Basic scripting, would that help me with C#?

    Back in 2004 when I did a short course up at Hallam Uni, after teaching myself VB from books, I kind of got the hang of it.

    VB was pretty similar to Unity in some ways, drag and drop stuff you want to use, and then write code to make it do stuff.

    Probably a daft question but I thought I'd broach it.

    Every bit of coding in any language is helpful when learning a new one.
    You are still telling a computer what to do step by step, just with different syntax and/or variables.
    Try to make a simple retro game to learn unity and C# :p

    VB Script is not Visual Basic and Visual Basic is not VB.Net and VB.Net is not C#. As DevDunk points out any experience helps but it can get in the way if you (for instance) loved the way VB Script did something and cannot believe it isn't the way every language works.

    Visual Basic is what I would label "fairly verbose" and there was something called Option Explicit that you could actually turn off. Won't happen in C#. Try it out it is free and there are all manner of tutorials.
