Beginning to Code

Being a relatively good programmer I often get people asking me where to start. I personally taught myself Python, a great first language but now there are even easier languages emerging such as LiveCode.

LiveCode has a simple GUI interface for designing the app and a English based logic. If you were to say sort the lines in JavaScript, you'd need many lines of code and symbols but in LiveCode you simply say:

"Sort lines of field 1 by item 2 of each"

LiveCode also directly supports iOS and Android and makes easy GUIs (Graphical User Interfaces) for Windows and Mac OSX.

The only downside of LiveCode is that it is currently quite expensive. However, they are running a Kickstarter Campaign to make LiveCode Opensource and Free.

Back now and get a great tool for free. Every cent helps.
