Announcement   Announcement : New site dedicated to developers of all camps
   posted by OlafS25 on 3-Dec-2012 12:10:55 (1247 reads)
You find the site under:
http://www.amigacoding.de

I want to describe shortly what I think this site should be about and the rules.

Read more...


First I think the situation is that it is very difficult for programmers who want to start programming (be it Amigans or developers that want to start to support one or all Amiga platforms to get information. Information is split on different special sites or even lost (like UtilityBase). But these special sites are mostly dedicated to only one platform and there is no central resource anymore covering all platforms. There is also no platform covering all platforms where programmers can discuss without the typical discussions.

So I think this site should be:
- Neutral, covering all platforms. Emotional discussions with phrases like "True", "done right" will be stopped by moderation (for that there are already enough sites).
- Resource for programmers and people interested in programming/development.
- Supporting communication between programmers and collaboration between all camps.
- Any insulting comments will be deleted without any comment.

There are parts of UtilityBase in web left:
http://web.archive.org/web/20100207002844/http://utilitybase.com/

I would like to ask the people who have contributed to UtilityBase in the past to add their information on this site (to save them). I cannot do it myself.

As much as I like the idea I do believe there are enough sites already and they work just fine.

Having said that I might share a few tips for creating cross-platform Hollywood applications - because many beginners think its just a case of re-compiling and bingo it just works (!) - the truth being its just not that straightforward.

Also what is the reasoning behind 'simple machines forum'? Sounds very negative.

Very nice initative!!

Only one thing, if it's an international site, what's up with this domain .de, why not .net, .com or .eu?

But in the end, I guess the .de doesn't really matter to me, you can read the site anyway...

I wish you good luck

'simple machines forum'

I think it's the name of the engine.
I believe it can&should&will be changed?

(just do not make it "complex machines forum", heh.)

UPDATE:

But it could be that "Simple Machines Forum" -text is a mandatory adverticing to be able to use the engine.

Looks like you've been caught in the same trap as Franko SMF is just the engine's name, what you see up in the right corner is a sample logo, he just needs to replace it

@ Nibunnoichi....

What trap !!!

If you mean Commodore Retro Amiga Portal... ie: C.R.A.P.

Then rest assured it is no trap and was deliberately chosen by me...

I like C.R.A.P. (would never have been an Amiga user if I didn't)...

@ Nibunnoichi

Ahh I see...

PS: Didn't think you meant any harm, thought it was quite harmless really...

PPS: Nothing in any posts made by me should ever be taken seriously...

Simple machines does not seem too IB friendly.
Ok with MUIOWB.

I have created a new video-section on my site where you can integrate your videos. Please integrate them because I want to use this site in future to create interest outside the community

nice effort, needs to be more people like you doing this kind of thing.

I just starting programming really, did a bit with Amos, Blitz Basic, Arexx Scripts back in the day, but only the absloute basics really. Again same with html, css, php, java, messed with it a bit just enough to get me by, I always wanted to get better a programming but I just dont think I have the right mind for it

Still I'm trying to get to grips with Hollywood, so I hope a few people will do tutorials on that.

I must say, this was quite handy for me.

Nice. I'm a *very* late-comer to programming but have registered and will hopefully be able to contribute something useful eventually.
