[REBOL] Re: Personal Programming and Rebol Promotion

From: fergus4:bellatlantic at: 17-Dec-2007 12:27

Nick, I love your tutorial. As much as I liked rebol before I read it your tutorial opened my eyes to possibilities I did not know were possible with rebol. It's also the perfect evangelist tool because it lays out very clearly what someone can do and how easy it is. I gave a copy to a co-worker at the firehouse that was a few years into a programming degree before he became a fireman. He wants to get back into it but I think learning "C" or c+ was a bit boring to him. He wanted to work with GUI's but none of the study approached this topic. He, like me, likes the idea of building gui rich, useful tools without all the complication attached to them generally. I'm no programmer either but I have built small apps with rebol that are very useful and more importantly small, simple and concise; meaning, they are not these bloated do everything tools. In fact, creating useful apps is so easy and quick with rebol I thought that a company building custom applications for small businesses could be profitable. To be able to create an application that exactly matches what the client wants would not be possible to do with traditional languages without it being prohibitively expensive and out of the price range of a small business that I think can be targeted with rebol. ----------------- Nick, when you mentioned: "I even use it to manage data on my new Pocket PC (Windows Mobile) phone." Did you mean running Core on the phone itself or manipulating data on the PC to late be synced with ActiveSync? Alan Macleod
