As a programmer of 40 years standing, who knows absolutely nothing about Vala except what I read here, I have only one thing to say.
A programming language lives or dies according to the quality, understandability, and thoroughness of its documentation; documentation for the programmer in how to use it, and the culture of its programmers in how they document their code (which is helped by what documentation tools are available).
If you have "few resources" to teach programmers how to use it, that says two things: you either don't understand or you don't prioritise properly; and your language is doomed.
