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.

Think of Gambas as
by Wesley Parish on Fri 12th Nov 2004 08:22 UTC

an equivalent of the Macintosh Hypercard program, able to create out highly competent software without letting the person doing the programming, that they were indeed programming.

That's because it does have restrictions, and "guide rails" for beginners. But as long as the person doing the programming isn't aiming for anything humungous or ginormous, and is going for a small program to do one thing and do it well, then Gambas, like Hypercard, should fit the need very adequately.

And qt is cross-platform - there's no need to worry aobut that. All that would be necessary, would be to nut out its compilation process in various MS Windows compilers, and then advertise it to MS developers as a way of transferring the VB skillset to Yet Another Platform.

I can't be the only person who sees Microsoft nearing the end of its market dominance.
