    Writing multimedia progs requires what courses?

    In am overwhelmed by the development tools. I have done visual basic6. The QT gui maker looks like VB6 but requires C+.

    I want to be able to install hardware.

    I want to write midi sound programs with object oriented programming like VB6.

    I have asked questions twenty times at six forums in two months with not one response.

    What computer courses should I take? I am willing to spend my time and money going to school to learn how to control my Ubuntu.

    Please respond........................

    There are a few object oriented programming languages that you can use in order to accomplish this task including Java, C#, Python, and others. My favorite is Python, they have an entire community built around sound and music applications. Check out the site it may give you some ideas, inspiration, or maybe you could add on to one of the programs and make it better.

    There is no real answer to this question, there is no best language, and there is no VB6

    Everyone has their own preferences. The best way to learn a language is not to take classes, but to dig in and start coding. I think Python is a great bet because it has tons of documentation, an avid support group, and a bunch of great features.

    Best of Luck,

    Thank You. i am not wealthy, therefore I am powerless to learn the technology that rules out lives today. So much technolgy freedom power available. it is sad that only elite people have access to this.

    Are you after support or is this an extension of the thread you posted earlier? Absolute Beginners Talk is a support forum.

    If you are looking for courses you would be best to see what is on offer in your area by making a few phone calls and searching the net. No doubt there are many online courses available. Do you know anyone that does these things already who might be willing to mentor you? Or ... buy or loan from a library the books you need to learn what you need to achieve your purpose and start asking questions on the half a dozen forums you mentioned when you get stuck. (There is a Programming sub-forum here where you might have better luck with your research.)

    Again this really isn't an Ubuntu support question, moved to the Cafe.

    check for computer clubs in your area or even a ubuntu users group. most of these can provide the type of help you are looking for.
