Valentine's Day 2008 - ShareFest

Valentine's day is less than three weeks away and it seems as good a time as any to share a bit of our experience with one another. With that in mind, we've come up with the idea of a ShareFest.

The genesis for this idea is from my own Liberty BASIC programming experience. When writing an LB program my setup is --I'm sorry to admit-- rather primitive. And I'm betting there are much better ways to create a program than what I'm doing. Then it hit me ... I'm probably not alone.

To participate: Simple share a tip or offer any advise. Post your list of "Do"s and "Don't"s, perhaps a snippet of code or suggest music to get you into that coding groove. Anything at all, no matter how big or small.

If you want to write a program to help make coding easier, faster, or just more fun, that'd be great too. I've got an idea for a little code helper so if you decide to write one, you won't be alone. :-)

Just a few suggested topics:
What is your LB programming environment like?
What books, if any, have been extremely helpful.
What websites do you find invaluable?
What programming aids can't you live without?
What editor do you use? What feature(s) attracted you to it?
What font do you use while programming?

Some Guidelines
  • Start Date is: Monday 28-Jan-2008 (today)
  • End Date is : Valentine's day 2008. (Thu 14-Feb)
  • Upload any programs you create for the Fest here.
  • We request you do try keep image file sizes small.
  • Possible forms the entries can take... article, lesson browser lsn, demonstration program, snippets, coding tools, plus, of course, any guidance you'd care to offer in this thread. Entering ShareFest is painless.
  • Voting will begin the day after Valentines and will continue for a week (Fri 15-Feb to Thu 21-Feb).

The name(s) of the winner(s) will be placed on the Wiki page with all the other winners.

So with that wide open invitation, let ShareFest 2008 begin! ;)
