In this article, we’re going to talk about how easy it is for non-programmers to learn Deluge. On the Zoho website, they say Deluge is super easy, requires fewer lines of code than other languages and that it speaks the language of your business. It’s even got a nice drag and drop editor. Sounds good, right?

Why You Can’t Start With Deluge

The reality is that if you don’t have a programming background, you’re going to be confused. You won’t be able to think in an algorithmic manner, making it impossible to properly run code.

For that reason, we recommend that you take a basic programming course in JavaScript or Python.

A simple course can teach you to learn how a program is structured, what “If statements” are, what “control flow” is, what “methods” are, what “variables” are, and all the other basics. For this, we recommend the Code Academy course on JavaScript.

It takes about 5 hours. You’ll find that it sets you up pretty well because Deluge’s syntax is quite similar to JavaScript. If you can write a bit of JavaScript, Deluge is relatively easy to understand.

Another option is the Deluge on a Luge course on udemy which is a gradual introduction to Deluge script for non-programmers.

Good luck!
