It just keeps getting better.

I have a great load of kids who are going from "Zero to Hero" in record time.

I will get my son, who, unlike his father, knows what he is doing with a camera, in on Wednesday, and then
the "truth behind the burble" can be seen.

The new syntax for coping with Unicode characters in LiveCode 7 is just fantastic: no more fiddling around converting Hexadecimal numbers into Base 10. None of that extremely clunky "set the unicodeText of fld "xxx" to numToChar(7328)".

Makes teaching much easier.

In my school in Bulgaria from October 2015 I will be offering a course that will take children through the basics of programming in Runtime Revolution Livecode, and from February 2016 into concentrating on GAME development.

As files and documents become available from these classes I will post links to them here:
