    Re: Suggestions for beginners

    Use a good tool for coding. Don't rely on a bulky IDE to do most of the grunt work for you because you should have a grounding in those concepts. They don't make life easier in the long run, at all.

    1. The notification area is NOT to be used as some ubiquitous dump for every application. It has specific uses, and applications that don't actively notify the user of events don't belong there.
