  • Getting started developing carputer software

    Hi lads, I'm (relatively) new to the site. I've been taking a while to browse around and look at some of the FAQs and information threads.

    I'm looking at develping a front end application for a carputer with all the usuals, MP3, DVD, GPS etc.

    I'd just like to ask some of the old hands here if you've got any words of wisdom for getting started. I'm developing it using C++ and am probably going to go with integrating WinAmp for audio/MP3. In particular i'm just wondering how you got started with the coding itself, if there's any useful tutorials for applications like this available on the web.

    Once I get this off the ground i'll be alright, any help or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Visit the link in the software development forum. The Gui class is written in but.. you can get a good idea from the code..

      I have the same idea

      Hey Daly, I have the same idea as you. I started by getting myself a good book to get started I'm currently reading chapter 8 of 24 ! There's still a lot of things I need to learn and I'll never give up. However I did a degree in Bachelor of Multimedia and perfectly understand what User Interaction means.

      How would you rate your programming skills so far?
      keep us updated and good luck.
