Re: my best effort

Although Sir Emerson is unfamiliar with freeBASIC (for the moment), he is a good candidate for understanding freeBASIC. However he works a full time job and his contribution to the project may better serve as a math teacher and other things for example, he will soon be helping them build the frame t...

Re: my best effort

The fbcadcam Philippines project is about freeBASIC but also much more.
We are fortunate indeed that Sir Emerson (an engineer who works in a pudding factory) is part of this project.

Re: my best effort

Now on to the beef (heart) of the matter: Are they learning how to program in FreeBASIC? Well yes and no. No, because they have a long way to go. Yes, because they are almost at that Tipping Point. UC to me the idea of learning how to program starts off at a Tipping Point. They are very very close ....

On a lighter note: I like beer. I encourage self lubrication with such liquids and to (keep it cool) if and when possible.

Re: my best effort

I thought to share with this community that last post because I find it to be fitting. Perhaps it would be better to say I find it to be an idea worth sharing. freeBASIC has matured over the years through the effort of a few generous people ie. FB DEV in which their effort is so easily blemished via...

Re: my best effort

It's been awhile since I have updated this community with what's going on in the Philippines. They are taking things in stride if you will. They mentioned in a recent post on there Facebook page that some of the new programmers are curious to know what this is all about. So I replied with a message ...

Re: my best effort

The idea of this project is that they will learn how to program in freeBASIC. I am trying to give them every possible opportunity to learn. The FB CAD project is just one of many mechanisms with the intent of inspiring creativity. In my mind I think it is helpful to be creative. Creativity is a comp...

Re: my best effort

I purchased FbCadCam's first CNC machine. I will be taking it with me when I go to the Philippines last week of January through first week of February.

Re: my best effort

I have informed them that they need to engage with you guys. They are very polite and respectful people but they are also very very new to programming. So do not think that your posts are being ignored it's just that they need that extra little bit of instruction. Somehow someway I will get them to ...

Re: my best effort

Using Skype for training has been challenging to say the least. I purchased 10 laptops, 10 headsets, a widescreen TV and a Android digibox for them for this purpose. Also high speed internet from pldt (the best telcomm service available for that area). I have been able to share my screen with them w...

Re: my best effort

I designed the code to gradually introduce more advanced concepts to them, once they have grasped everything at that level. Right now, the overall concepts they'll need to learn are (in order of appearance in the code):


very well though out paul. thanks.
we'll follow your lead.

Re: my best effort

10-4 on scope.
They don't know what scope is yet but I will explain to them in time.

I have been working with them every chance I get sometimes 7 hours a day while I work my 14 hours schedule.

Today started off slow because we had a hard time getting connected on Skype.
