[REBOL] Re: Hitting the learning curve

From: patrick:philipot:laposte at: 5-Nov-2003 12:10

What is the starting point with Rebol? This is how I proceed for what it's worth. I start looking for related topics in the library. I appreciated most Carl examples which are the more Rebolish (or Rebolistic?). I have downloaded the entire Library in a folder named DOC. I store there all the documentations I have been able to collect about Rebol: The CookBook, The How-to, Zine articles, Ladislav document. I have also a special folder named "Good to know" where I store bits and tricks gathered from my own experience or from the Mailing List. After getting a more precise idea of the different parts needed, I start a new text document to write it down. Then I start a console session to test some points directly. I keep validated piece of code also in my text document. Very often, at this stage, some help is required from the ML. Finally if a GUI is needed, I start a simple layout which is refined progressively and noted in my text document too. At this stage, or earlier, my wife call me for this big thing that cannot wait and I am glad to have all my work written down waiting for me until I can resume a few hours or days later (depending on the big thing).
