Challenges for a beginner


Recommended Posts


I am a novice programmer, I know the basics of C#, Scratch, App inventor 2 and some Lua. I recently discovered AutoIt and I would like to learn more of AutoIt. How ever I do not know what to code so could a more skilled programmer to give me small challenges?

  2. Check the excellent windows help file for AutoIt. Every command has decent code snippets to easy learn
    1. Online help https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/
      1. Function reference https://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/docs/functions.htm just scan the list to see whats interesting for you
        Would suggest to read at least some of the powerfull specific functions
