Hello!
At the moment I'm full time .Net developer and during my college days I've spent quite some time working with C++; for some time I want to expand my coding horizons and Gtk+ looks like a logical move.
What I really want to know is this: what language do you prefer and why?
Are some languages better for coding gkt+ stuff?
Now my language of choice is Python.

Also if you have a good advice for a novice gkt+ coder, don't be shy :).

I think you'll find C to be one of the more common languages on this forum. Python and C are the most common languages being used for most of the GNOME stuff you'll be seeing.

This is a very common question for beginners. In fact, I dedicated part of my GTK+ tutorial to this topic: Choosing a Programming Language for GTK+ Development

You could dink around with C# using Mono which has a really cool IDE. A lot of developers coming from Windows are thrown off by how things work in Linux.

For GTK+ I use Python or C depending on the project. I dink around with Ruby, PHP, and Mono for fun sometimes.

Hi,

Has anybody tried to convert the glade file into a web based application?

I have thought about that. It would be neat to combine php-gtk and glade to make AJAX web applications.

But no, I don't know of any such thing.

Are you interested to start a new project for it?

I have tried a lot of languages as a part time programmer, and I keep coming back to C.

With gtk applications in linux, I have been able to communicate with databases (ODBC), do animated displays, and general user interfaces. Then I copy the code to dev-c++ in windows and it all recompiles nicely, and the result is always very stable and fast application.

I am about to try web services with gSOAP.

My c# programming experience was very productive though. I think application load times were long.

Regards,
Kim
