Hi,

First of all I really like BOINC and the broader idea about BOINC, so that I spend some of my idle PC time for some projects.

Me and a friend also have some ideas, that would be nice to have BOINC'ed and therefore I had a look into your documantaries but neither I nor my friend are professional programmers so it's hard to start.

So is there some kind of step-by-step instructions for beginners? Some virtual sandboxes (not the vm server, I found that) or other "easy" to start examples?
In your track system are some examples but I find them quite difficult, because I don't know what's important and what's not.

I would also visit a nice person explaining it personally, when this person is living in Germany :).

Thanks in advance foryour help,


Andreas

What is it you want to do? Run the BOINC client on your computer? Or set up your own project and write your own applications?
