You’ll also find it helpful to watch the following YouTube videos:

[1] ‘An Overview of Scripting in Second Life’ by Preston Straff. No more than a mere glimpse of code in this one, though a clear explanation of how LSL works with states and events.

[2] Rather whimsical, but a beautifully clear tutorial, is the follwing walkthrough of how to create a ‘Dance Animation’.
