Another way of approaching LC8?

Having been burnt by the BMI Calculator example, what would listers suggest as the shortest way to get familiar with LC8 without reading an enormous amount of text? I would count myself as a pretty experienced LiveCode programmer, so that’s where I’m starting from.

Maybe I should just take an existing program, open it and see what happens? But then widgets would remain a closed book, which isn’t the intention.

I had a quick look at the HTML 5 side of things and at the dictionary, and both scared me. I don’t feel I’m in Kansas any more.

How did you guys do it?
