    Let's say there's a certain downloadable calculator for pc's and Macs. How easy would it be to convert that program so it can be a Homebrew app? I'm wondering if I can do this myself. My only experience with writing programs was in college at the intro level programming an A, btw.

    Depends on what language you used in that programming class. If it's Visual Basic, you might find it much different than developing on the Palm Pre. The Pre uses:

    • HTML
    • CSS
    • JavaScript -- Lots of this
    • Widgets and APIs using the Mojo framework

    While it's not impossible to learn, understand that you've got quite the learning curve if you haven't spent a lot of time with the first 3 items. Palm does have a developer site with a very basic "Hello World!" app, which is a good place to get your feet wet to see if you really like it.

    I've created a very basic tutorial beyond that (which I do plan on adding to in the future) that may also help.
