Linden Scripting Language (LSL) is the built-in coding language that SL uses to make objects and avatars interact with each other. It is the code that makes Second Life come alive. Avatars can walk and dance because of their scripts. Planes can fly and sports car can drive because of their scripts.
The LSL tutorials
are free and available to all residents to use. For people who are professional programmers in real life, it is just a matter of learning another programming language. But people who find software programming confusing or boring can always buy objects with built-in scripts in the SL marketplace.
Second Life Issues
Advanced users will be interested in the Issue Tracker tutorials.
The Issue Tracker is the place for residents to report software bugs and ask for new features. The problems that beginners and intermediate level users usually run into are often a result of lack of knowledge about how the SL system works, rather than a flaw in the system. But advanced users can not only get there problems solved by reporting bugs, they can make significant contributions to the community. By identifying problems, and suggesting solutions and new features, advanced users help Linden Lab continue the growth and development of Second Life.
