Targeted at people with basic programming experience in any imperative programming language, you will learn about syntax, semantics, and idioms. Starting from Hello World up to graphical user interfaces using GTK+, covering DBus interprocess communication, network programming, Linux specifics, and more. Learn how to leverage external libraries and enhance Vala by writing bindings to new libraries.
