[REBOL] Re: I wrote a little Rebol tutorial for absolutebeginners...

From: nick:guitarz at: 16-Apr-2006 19:22

Hi everyone :) I added some more to my little Rebol tutorial (not so little any more - about 130 pages). It's got more examples, a section on objects, some short case studies, and other various additions: (also in the articles section of I've got a particular interest in helping to promote Rebol. I'm curious if anyone has any ideas... So far, the tutorial has been downloaded several thousand times each month from links outside the Rebol world, and that rate of activity has been improving :) The .exe version currently has a "popular" rating at, it's hosted at several tutorial sites, and at sourceforge. I've had people write saying that they have plans to use elements of the tutorial in schools, and it's being translated to several languages. If anyone can suggest any other channels of promotion, please let me know! I see a large market for Rebol in the "end-user developer" community (55 million developers, compared to 2.7 million professional coders). I'm wondering if I shouldn't meddle in this sort of thing - I know Carl has a different focus for 3.0. I don't want Rebol to be perceived as a beginner's tool - I just hope people see how useful it is, join in the community, and help grow our code base... Any suggestions/corrections/feedback about the tutorial are appreciated. Thanks! - Nick
