In the sense of the tradition founded by Kernighan and Ritchie, we start with the obligatory “Hello World” program—a minimal example that not only provides a first look at the syntax but also discusses the Vala way from the source code to the executable binary. We also take a glance behind the curtain to see how Vala operates in the background and translates your program into C.
