    Question Any Decent Tutorial to get me started?

    Hello dota 2 devs!

    i learned programming 1 year ago in university and i know the basic stuff, however i tried to follow the tutorial on https://dota2api.readthedocs.io/en/latest/tutorial.html didn't understand that much, so if someone could be kind and show me a little demo how things works it would be awesome, or if there is a decent tutorial in the forums or somewhere else please refer it.


    Thank you in advance.

    read the bible: http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=58317

    or at least.. as close to a bible as possible..

    TL;DR:
    1) fetch latest 500 matches using GetMatchHistory, or trawl through all the matches using GetMatchHistoryBySequenceNum
    2) For each match, get its full details using GetMatchDetails.
    3) ???
    4) profit?

    php is free and servers are cheap..... there's a great library that was written for it: https://github.com/kronusme/dota2-api

    nodejs has similar.
    probably other languages.

    whatever you're comfortable in really.
