[off-topic-ish] do you prefer LC-related content as books or video courses?

What I like about books is that I can go back to them easily and find Gems, if there is a good index. Videos work for me, if they are short. It also depends on your target audience. If you are going for experienced Livecode programmers, I suspect a highly indexed online “Book” that is searchable and contains tricks and gotcha workarounds would work. If you are wanting to target new users, I suspect an intro video designed to show how cool Livecode is, with demos of apps built with LC, then pointers to your online books might work. But then, I’m of the older generation, so.....

What might also be an idea is to create:
Livecode for beginners
Livecode for teachers
Livecode for students
Livecode for kids


If you go with the book route, it would be pretty easy to make it into an indexable online text document.

Good luck,

William Prothero
