Vala Programming IDE

Setting up Vala - Trying a new programming language

Here I am, trying to learn a new programming language. Actually it feels more like getting to know the child of an old friend. Vala is a little bit like C but in a modern way and a lot like C# without having to install a huge runtime when you just want a "Hello world"

If you want to learn more just go to http://live.gnome.org/Vala

I am using Mint. An Ubuntu derivative so these instructions reflect that.

I'll first share my odyssey and then the instructions that actually worked.
