    Just a post looking for fellow newbie programmers who would like to add each other to Aim/MSN or something to help each other learn and share information/knowledge.

    I guess PM me with your details and i will do and information pass round between all those interested!

    Maybe when we all get upto speed we could do a joint project of some description :D

    but why limit to newbs? pro's/experianced can be alot of help,

    but this forum is really a good place for discussing code.

    anyways aim = darkyaromy

    Because i have found experienced programmers don't have time for newbs. And the forum is great but asking a question via IM is easier and you can have a discussion about it rapidly whereas here you can't

    It's an excellent idea.

    The more resources, the merrier.

    What kind of programing are we talking about here? HTLM? C++? Java? Objective-C? Cocoa?

    Count me in too. We can do something cool with this.
    I just hear about the following application, www.tubesnow.com, it is highly unfortunate that it only works with windows at the moment, but in the faqs they state a version for mac will be developed in the future. Or we can use dot mac.

    The idea would be to share code as we develop it, so we could help each other, or more than one person posting its code for an especific task, to compare different approaches to the same problem.

    Well is just a sugestion, let me know what you think.

    Best Regards

    I'm choosing to do all my discussions through this forum. Via a forum is less disruptive to my typical workflow and allows me to research and think about a topic and not be held on the spot for an answer, or hold anyone on the spot. I've gotten great support here, and (I think) have even helped some once or twice.

    Good idea - not for me.

    Aloha eenu,

    Count me in as well. I graduated from Hawaii Pacific University in January 2005 with a BCSC degree, but haven't done any coding since then. My job is actually more with getting computers - running Windows, UNIX, and Linux - on a network to communicate together, so it doesn't involve any code work (I work as a C4ISR Network Engineer, as a civilian contractor on a US Army contract). Beyond that, HPU only teaches Windows-based coding, in that students must purchase a Windows-based IDE - no Mac coding there.

    I am very interested in learning Objective-C and attempting to program the "next greatest (Universal) app" using the Cocoa framework. Of course, I know that my learning curve will be a bit steep, but oh well :D The more I learn about my Macs (I just made the switch last August), the more I realize what a great decision I made when I switched. One of the other benefits is the user community. Mac users, at least in my opinion, are far more open and supportive of new, or inexperienced, users than our Windows conterparts.

    With that said, I will have some rather "interesting" work hours over the next six weeks, so I don't know how much I will be able to contribute. I will endeavor to participate as much as possible, however. Hey, maybe we can form our own software company :D

    Count me in as well

    I don't have a Mac yet but will soon hopefully. It'd be nice to get a head start and know some basic stuff before I dive in.

    Count me in! I won't be much help but who knows?
