I`v been working in the Production Infrastructure area for many years, and been looking for a change,
my “developer” knowledge is mainly a lot of PowerShell.
i`m looking to learn how to code, and to create a multiplayer card\table game.
the game i`m looking to create is Backgammon, such with a Lobby Game server, where players will use a client & html5 to connect to the lobby and play against other players in different tables for play money.
As this will be my entry project, i`m not sure what language should i use.
i was offered to use C Sharp & MS-SQL
i would love to hear from you guys what should i use in order to learn and create the game i`m looking for.
Microsoft .NET as well as C# have all the infrastructure to build robust game engine, there is a free version of most popular tool and IDE Visual Studio but in commercial use cases you will need to pay a licence. Learning curve for C# and ASP.NET is not easy.
