# Are my programming skills transferable to LaTeX and TikZ?

I just want to ask what is LaTeX and TiKZ programming language like? Basically, I am looking at projects available in my final year. The project I looked at is a graphical interface to draw graphs in LaTeX which looks quite interesting. I have skills in java, C, C++ and HTML, but will my programming knowledge be transferable to LaTeX and TikZ?

Also, I have briefly used LaTeX before to structure my reports, and didn't realize it can produce graphs :o

I've taken the liberty to make the title of your question more specific. I think it will stand a better chance of getting great answers that way. –  Jubobs May 28 '13 at 22:09
Thanks Jubobs, looks better now :) –  user11998 May 28 '13 at 22:10
Do you want to do something like TiKZedt or LaTeXdraw? –  Ignasi May 28 '13 at 22:14
Wow did not know this existed. The project description also referred this link: texample.net/tikz –  user11998 May 28 '13 at 22:17
For graphing you may prefer something like metapost or asymptote. Asymptote in particular has a syntax close to that of a regular programming langauge. Similarly, you may prefer the structure of expl3 syntax to that of regular LaTeX. –  Scott H. May 28 '13 at 22:29
