This made experimentation as a learner a huge amount more successful. It would always be guessing at what you might want to do - working away to beat you to it. This not only made it faster when you’d got the idea but it helped enormously when you didn’t quite know what you were doing. As long as you got the start right it would often point out the rest (with the help of some educated guessing).
In terms of the languages themselves there’s very little in it - they are quite similar to look at (although I would say that I find C# more readable). It’s just the tools available that set them apart. I’m getting to grips with it but I think that it will be a little while before I can write my own code rather than just adjusting and piecing together code from various tutorials.
