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.

OK, this article was an advert but one a lot of people seem interested in. Me included.

There's thousands of VB programs out there, written by newbie programmers who never went on to "real programming". Even if you have your CS degree, you still sometimes want to be able to knock together something simple, with a focus on the UI. Something like Glade can be good, but it only does half of what it could do. Gambas may not be the solution but at least they're trying.
