Haven't been coding in about a year (nor been on the site), but I can tell you this: Coding takes about what an average C++ coder would ever need. You don't need to learn the entire language, but you do have to learn most of it. If you are interested in coding, start with Auto-Ons, then Hotkey, then finally Menu. If you are learning VB, it could help you, but if you are coding a hack from scratch, it wouldn't be useful.
