Eclipse :
Scripting Getting Started

Absolute Beginner Initial Steps

0. Brush up on C# and .Net.  

C# is an extremely popular programming language, so there are tons of free online resources. A few possibilities:

1. Install Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2022 or 2019 version. Other paid versions will work as well. Varian will allow you to install Visual Studio on on a test box or non-clinical system, but do not install on a clinical production box/server.

2. After installing Visual Studio on a test or research box, watch this “Getting Started with VS and ESAPI” video from HelloEsapi.
