…and why becomes a pure free time project so possessive?
I program since I’ve been 14 I think. Back then I wrote some BASIC code on a old PC from a buyback center. It was fun and I read so much books about how to catch all keyboard combinations to restart the computer.
Later I learned Java and it was not fun at all. That language is giving me nothing but headache. I’ve never seen a good looking java program you want to use. But the community is nice, not like the C++ community: You have a problem? Here is a ‘Hello World’ example perhaps you understand that or you can learn LOGO….
I ended with Objective-C on the Mac and iOS platform. The documentation is getting worse (I think Apple should hire more people) but you can write good looking code and beautiful programs. It is not perfect but it is good enough. Meanwhile I learned Python but to be honest: I like brackets, they are useful to keep code readable. But for really small task it is not bad…
Finally to get to the point: I am not a total beginner but coding for the Playbook is challenging for me. ActionScript is not a big problem but every time I design the user interface the incomplete documentation and API gets in my way. Ok, I am a little bit petted, because I worked in the last time only with frameworks that are often used and so you can find a lot of solutions for problems in the web but come on…
The whole ‘I write an app for the Playbook’ should only be a free time project but I can’t get it out of my head. I should do other things but today I wrote 4 hours code for it.
Damn first world problems….
