LiveCode in The Lab

I had the pleasure of hearing from long time LiveCoder, Larry Walker, in regards to his recent successes with LiveCode. This is his story. Thanks to a referral from the director of my local MakerSpace, I was contacted awhile back by a small, 2-person gene-splicing lab. Maybe not a typical potential client for most LiveCoders, but my town (home t...

Why You Should Spend (More) Time Submitting a Bug Report

During the last few months, I have been working on the maintenance of LiveCode 6.7.x and LiveCode 7.0.x releases. This mainly involves fixing bugs.

Keep Calm and Kanban

Caption: If I can make like Naruto and multiply with the Kage bunshin no Jutsu We're all familiar with a busy day. It’s a new day and you step into the office, bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready to take on the day’s challenge.

Trade Shows – Are they worth the Expense Report?

To Trade Show, or Not to Trade Show? Now that is often the question! I know a lot of people have varying thoughts on Trade Shows. Should I attend?

Why LiveCode’s Voice in My Head is the Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

Some (mad) people talk to themselves in an empty room. Some (even madder) people do so in a crowded room. I think I’m madder than the lot of them: I talk to LiveCode. Effective Keyword Me: “Hi LiveCode, I have a task for you:” LiveCode: “I've got nothing for you.” Me: “How unkind. Well, if you’re going to act like that...

Midnight Rises, the interactive graphic novel created in LiveCode, launches today. So we sat down with Alex Seropian, Industrial Toys CEO and Official Programmer of Midnight Rises, to ask him about his experience in creating a graphic novel and using LiveCode.

8 Reasons You Should be Talking about LiveCode 8.0

Taking too long to code? Just invent a new programming language! In early 2014, we were looking at a roadmap that was so long it would have taken our existing team years to complete.
