Topic: Newbie's guide to writing apps/widgets
I am finally getting some down time and thought I might try my hand at coding for the chumbysphere. I have searched a bit and have not really found a guide to help start from scratch. I have coding experience but not too much in the Java world. I have been around computers for over 35 years and programmed mostly for micro-controllers and automation control systems that include HTML. I know my way around LINUX.
So what is the best coding environment, compiler ect. I am open to paid and open source avenues.
As the commercial says, "what's on your computer?" (OK, it really says, "what's in your wallet?")
