Introduction - Me and LiveCode

Post by davemarkturk » Wed Jan 30, 2019 3:22 pm

Hi, finally into LiveCode, that is, with a Community + License. I started coding with Fortran - punch cards, then Apple BASIC, Microsoft BASIC (Paid work), Hypercard (Paid work), a splash of SuperCard (Paid work ONCE!), Macromedia/Adobe Director/Lingo (Lots of paid work), & ended with one Adobe Flash/ActionScript project, but as producer ( pet • dogshome • com ). I never got into C development due to strange twists in my employment history.

I also co-founded local Melbourne Australia Apple User Group in 1980 ( www • ausom • net • au ) and also started the local Macromedia/Adobe User Group later (Now closed), until all halted for health reasons, but here I am full circle back to HyperCard of sorts but in LiveCode form, thanks to the new licence options.

I’m also an emerging artist ( davemarkturk • wordpress • com/about-2/ ) where I have exhibited twice working with light and xxxx, where xxxx could be kinetic motion, or climate art^^, or whatever I choose xxxx to be. I use Arduino things, and also have an interest in Raspberry Pi, once some hurdles are overcome.

I also work with web/SEO guru chrisburgess • com • au

Questions?

Hi.

If you know HC, you already know a lot about LC. It is from you, however, that we expect questions. :wink:

Welcome aboard, Dave. Your name seems familiar. Were you active in the SuperCard forum on AOL back the day?

While your post offers a sort of potted, and slightly confusing, CV (and posting the URLs as
real URLs might not be a bad idea), it dosn't really tell us what you intend to do with
LiveCode.

Oh, and you'll have to get used to me as I tend to be a bit of a negative sort of critic
round these parts.

As long as you realise that nothing is meant personally you probably won't start
chasing me with a virtual light-saber. 8)

New accounts don't have the ability to do that, for security reasons (robospam mitigation settings).

With such a broad pedigree I'm guessing perhaps more than one thing. I don't mind an intro message. Kinda nice, actually.

Well, if this chap has the solid-gold pedigree that is claimed for him, then, perhaps he
should be permitted to post URLs right from the start. 8)

In light of this:

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=32093&p=175875#p175874

the "honeymoon period" begins to look more sensible.

Well, see above here, but as this chap is fooling around a spot where I have
cross-reffed this may be no longer relevant.
