...... I'm one of the few firmly in the end user camp as I could never quite grasp higher level programming well enough. I thinker time to time in C64 assembly and basic, that's about it.
Like jpv and Zylsea and some few others here on this forum, I want to improve my programming skills by using and learning Hollywood for MorphOS. I invite you to check it out more closely, as I am sure if I can learn to use it, anyone can learn to program with Hollywood.
My moving from Southern California to Northern California is 99.5% complete, but the unpacking and organizing everything might take me years, and I am sure that some boxes may not be unpacked, until some time after another move to a different house. The new house also needs a great deal of renovating work, plus maintenance work, so computer time will be limited for the next 6 to 9 months. Still, I will try to schedule at least 4 to 5 hours a week minimum, and possibly up to 10 to 15 hours if I am lucky, to learn Hollywood programming language.
I am encouraged to see several MorphZone.org users who have learned, or are learning Hollywood to program with on MorphOS.
I have an original Raspberry Pi, model B, plus a newer Raspberry Pi 2, in addition to my old Efika and soon to have a Pine64+, which are all low power computing devices. One or more of them would be a good candidate to use as a home automation and security system, which I would leave running 24/7, 365 days of the year. For the member here who made negative comments regarding the Pine64, or the SoC it was using, because it had poor documentation, I invite them and anyone else who is interested in having a relatively powerful 64bit ARM SoC device to play with, to look again at the Pine64 and Pine64+, with all of its available add-ons and OS choices, plus the fact that they have already sold over 45,000 boards and have over 36,000 supporters. It is supposed to come with tons of written documentation (I should have mine within a couple of weeks, and will report back on what kind of docs come with the board).
