General Development For a few years, I've been working in the real world, I mean the enterprise world, sorry. In every company I've worked for, they offered me the opportunity to learn a lot of new things, or at least that's what they always said in the first meeting before sending me to be just another company programmer. But in fact I've learned some very important things, just not about programming. I had to learn about these things on my own, about the needs of a real company in the real world.

Regarding the Mono Reference
by Robert Cook on Fri 12th Nov 2004 02:56 UTC

I meant to add that Gambas ported to Windows offers enormous opportunities vis-a-vis Novell's Mono effort. I am teaching myself C# and take exception to the assertion that complex concepts must be learned before you can do anything useful with C#. The truth is, Gambas and C# are bother very powerful and can be as simple or complex as you want/need.

Mono brings tremendous value to Linux development. I am not sure if Gambas going to Windows provides the same benefit but if Linux continues to grow, it will help fortifying a ready army of Gambas-enabled developers.
