Question Learning vessel and MFD programming.

So I have seen some people do programming for making vessels and men's. So I decided that I myself will also try to learn it and so I just want to ask how to get started for it. Like, writing a code for a mfd, where to learn the coding, how to implement it in orbiter and such.
Thank you.

The first thing you will need is to learn how the C++ programming language works and to become familiar with the language basics. There are a number of C++ tutorials on the Web, such as https://www.tutorialspoint.com/cplusplus/index.htm. I also suggest downloading and installing the free Visual Studio Express 2017 development environment that you can use to learn C++. See here for a tutorial about how to get started with it.

Feel free to ask specific questions here on the forum if you get stuck.
