An introduction to the revolutionary new Linux-based programming language to developers of any skill level. Intended for the Gambas novice, this book quickly introduces all of the major features of Gambas in a step-by-step manner

A Beginner's Guide to Gambas is the first definitive reference for the Linux-based Gambas programming language. Gambas ships with a graphical development environment based on the Basic programming language. It supports object-oriented programming and is similar to Microsoft's Visual Basic product. Gambas uses the Qt toolkit and supports other toolkits like GTK+. With Gambas, you can quickly design a user interface, access databases from MySQL, SQLite, and PostgreSQL, or remotely pilot KDE applications using the DCOP protocol. Rittinghouse masterfully describes the details of this new language with plenty of examples and illustrations that make it easy to understand.

Customer Reviews

  Excellent Intro to Gambas , 01/01/2007
Reviewer: Bill Hancock
This is an outstanding reference to this new and very cool programming platform. Dr. Rittinghouse has approached the topic by providing very clear and concise descriptions and he provides incremental steps to understanding the use of both the IDE and the langauge. His program examples are very well written and they cover all major features of the Gambas language. This goes far beyond simple Wiki-explanations and provides real "meat" to the programmer's table. Highly recommended.
