[REBOL] REBOL Tutorial

From: nick:guitarz at: 5-Oct-2009 10:03

Over the past year, I've made a wide variety of additions and improvements to the tutorial at (now mirrored at ). This text is NOT the original absolute beginner tutorial at , but a much more evolved text with far greater depth. The new tutorial is approximately 400 pages of really densely packed text. It includes more than 50 complete applications (many examples are available as downloadable Windows executables at (mirrored at - that directory also contains screen shots and script files of each example). The new tutorial covers everything in the beginner tutorial, plus an enormous amount of new material. It's written in a much more concise style, which should be quick for experienced developers to digest, but it's still completely accessible to absolute beginners. Most of the commonly troublesome issues experienced by new users are covered, hopefully eliminating any real barriers to using REBOL productively. Many links to other online documentation resources are provided to fully learn all essential topics, but no third party reference materials are required to understand any example in the text, even for people who've never written a line of code. I've done my best to provide a complete introduction to using REBOL, which I hope will encourage and enable more new users of all levels to join our community. ** Please link to it if you have a moment **. Thank you! PS - suggestions for improving the text are always welcome. As REBOL3 matures, I'll add similar tutorials for it :)
