I'm very happy to announce the second edition of my book Programming
LiveCode for the Real Beginner. The previous edition stems from the time
of LiveCode 6 and since then many features have been added to --and some
removed from-- LiveCode. One of the major changes concerns Unicode.
While I haven't deleted any of the valuable information about Unicode
form the book, I have added a paragraph and made several changes to take
into account the much easier way LiveCode deals with unicode nowadays.
Everywhere in the book, small corrections and bigger changes have been
applied. Where necessary, scripts have been updated and minor remarks
have been added, making the text more comprehensible. The paragraphs
about the standalone builder and the properties inspector have been
renewed. Pictures have been updated with improved quality and doing more
justice to LiveCode's multi-platform character.
The red cover with scripts and mainboard has been replaced with a fresh
yellow cover exhibiting four fields in which one might find LiveCode
projects making a significant contribution. I intend to write a blog
post about this when I have collected the necessary info.
In response to feedback, we have decided to abandonthe bubble plastic
envelopes and replace them with carton board book cases. Your book
should now arrive in perfect condition. If it doesn't, contact us.
Important to know:
- 250 pages with many examples
- This book is not available as e-book and it won't be. Don't ask.
- Read more at
(we still need to update the website but most information still applies)
- The book costs 32 euro, including packaging and shipping costs
- We ship globally with only a few (four or five) exceptions
- Not receiving your purchase (e.g. sometimes in China)? Use our website
to contact us and ask for a solution
Have you written or are you writing a book and do you own the
copyrights? I'd like to explore the possibilities to print more
LiveCode-related books. Contact me if you think this is an awesome idea.
