I went back and re-read Alejandro's post and that is most definitely NOT
the impression it gives me. I also chatted with him for a good half hour
or more yesterday and nothing in that conversation suggested that these
teachers already know how to program using another language/environment.
For example, he repeatedly makes the point that they are expecting Rev to
look like and have similar capabilities to a typical Office suite of
programs (which is about all teacher ed candidates tend to be taught). He
says they look at the volume of documentation and are horrified, whereas
probably most of us who already use Rev to varying degrees wish there was
even more (for example, it was recently suggested to me to use the
selectedLine for a tabbed button... I checked the docs and they only
suggest that selectedLine works for fields, not buttons, but it did,
Can you point me to what I missed (re Alejandro)?
