hi Xamian community.
this is Carsten from Germany. just getting warm with Xamarin/Mono/...
I have thirtysome years of development experience. recently mostly JavaEE. so far this C#-stuff seems more fun than I ever would have thought.
I use MonoDevelop 4.2.2 / Mono 3.2.4 on Linux Mint XFCE. my target platforms will mostly be Ubuntu Software center / ChromeOS / SteamOS. some MonoGame / Unity3D projects as well as normal desktop stuff (Gtk#). it surely doesn't hurt to be able to compile to the mobile platforms (iOS, Android) as well.
now what I seem to be to stupid to find are any code samples for Gtk desktop development with Mono. Linux in general seems somewhat underrepresented as far as I can see. I can find examples on external sites, but I would like to start with the semi-"official" stuff first.
the whole MonoGame stuff works pretty great. mobile is only of secondary interest to me so far.
are there users with similar interests around here? is there a Linux-specific forum? MonoDevelop seems to be one of the greatest integrated dev-platform on Linux rivaling even IntelliJ IDEA IMHO. and Ubuntu, SteamOS and ChromeOS are the fastest growing markets in the desktop space. this looks like a great match or doesn't it?
any suggestions where to look for more specific information for Linux as both the development platform as well as the target OS?
