Well, in our business, we use livecode everyday.
We're using livecode for our internal tools and to develop tools for our
Livecode is very powerful, but it is not very "popular" between coders
If you are waiting to get a job like "livecode programer" on a big
company, or find livecode developers on the market, then...bad news...
You have to "create" your own developers with patience and time.
I think that livecode is a really good tool if you have your own small
business (like me), and you have a good relations with your customers.
My customers doesn't want to know my development tools (livecode), they
want solutions to their problems.
But on the "big market"...People are looking for java, python,
objetive-C, PHP, and .net projects...They know nothing about livecode.
In my opinion: Runrev needs to spend more money in marketing, because
this tool is really wonderful. We need a strong livecode community to
bring livecode to the next level.
