I'd really like to learn some basic networking stuff (because, yes, some day I'd like to make some sort of multiplayer game). I know the go to standard is Beej's guide (which I've begun to read), but other than my computer architecture class last year I haven't really programmed in C at all.
I was wondering if there are any good alternative guides that utilize other languages, or if it would be best to just go with it and learn C (which I plan to learn eventually regardless). (I only mentioned Python and Java because those are the languages with which I'm currently most comfortable)
Thanks in advance.
