Construct 2 uses visual event sheets, no code knowledge is required.

Unless you're talking about making plugins, then it would be javascript.

Wait, I have been doing the beginners tutorial, while looking if I can code anything. Do I need to download that documentation to code stuff, or I am blind and can't find it?

Construct 2 does not use traditional typed coding! It's all done by events. The beginner's tutorial covers how events work.

Doesn't C2 support Python or Java Scripting like in C1 (Pyhton)?

C2 plugins and behaviour are coded in javascript.
HTML5 exported application is exported in javascript.

But, atm, you can't (and don't really need to) use directly javascript into event sheets the way CC integrated python.
