    Kodak probably suggests a specific developer for their T-Max film. The best place to start is usually with the film manufacturer's suggestion.

    By doing this, you will have a standard against which to judge other developers, dilutions, etc.

    Agreed. Kodak developers will give you a great starting point. TMax developer is usually diluted 1:4; I wouldn't start playing with higher dilutions until you're comfortable with it at the recommended dilution. D76, HC110 - all of them are good, and everyone has their favorites. :)

    Start with one film and one developer and stick to it for several rolls so you know what you're getting, before branching out and trying several different ones.
