The Coding Chronicles - for a Newb, by a Newb A collection of in-depth articles aimed at the new and aspiring Bot Author. RuneMate, the perfect environment for aspiring Bot Authors. This community offers these individuals a near-unique environment from which to leverage the start of their coding career. The concept can seem daunting at first, especially if you don't come from a particularly computer-orientated background, and it can be difficult to get involved with initially. Because of this, my goal in this series, through the act of assisting new developers, I can encourage others to do the same. I had a great deal of help when I started coding not so long ago, and I'd like to pass on the information I've been given so others can get involved too. In this series, I will attempt to bridge the gap between the ever-daunting nothingness and your first bot release! Each Chapter will be released in a separate thread, with this thread acting as your index. This allows questions or comments the reader may have to be asked in the appropriate location. Index -Foreword A brief chapter about me and my background. -Chapter One: Ready, Set, Go! Setting up IntelliJ for use with RuneMate Spectre. -Chapter Two: Hello, World! Creating your very first Spectre-compatible bot.
