Hi there!

I've been following what you're doing for a little while now.
My background:
I know C and C++ but do most my stuff with php, bash and perl (all 
scripting) at the moment.
I also found a lot of info on the go-mono website.
But tutorials are not really available.

My aim is to make a cross-platform app that supports Desktop-Systems and 
PockePC PDA.
So, where do I start with this. A nice little Mono HelloWorld app would 
be nice.
I just don't see which components I need. OK, there is a GPL IDE  ( 
http://www.icsharpcode.net/opensource/sd/ ) and mono has a lot of 
binaries to offer.
But then, what do I need to get the apps running? I want the demo to 
work on Linux and my PDA

Sorry if I seem a bit ignorant but because there is so much 
documentation on on go-mono "I donot see the wood for the trees", if you 
know what I mean. A 1-2-3 starter kit would be great.
