LiveCode/Revolution Scripting Conferences

The Revolution online scripting conferences took place from April to November, 2005, when LiveCode was called Revolution. These conferences were a series of fortnightly moderated online chat sessions, free and open to all. They introduce the basic techniques of programming in LiveCode to the widest possible audience, in a fun, exciting way. Don't know what a stack is? Don't know your background from your backyard? These conferences are for you. They will also be excellent refreshers for more experienced scripters.

Update: In 2014, almost 10 years later, these stacks were still recognized as useful and were downloaded by new users regularly. At the request of the community, they were updated slightly to modernize them for LiveCode. The product logo was updated, all references to "Revolution" were changed to "LiveCode" and the color scheme was altered to better match the logo. The original scripts, behaviors, and syntax remain accurate and required no changes, and the stacks retain the original authors' work.

The scripting conferences were organized and moderated by Jacqueline Landman Gay.
