[REBOL] Re: teaching rebol

From: greggirwin:mindspring at: 1-Apr-2003 9:07

Steve, Mike, Bo et al Wow! This topic seems to have struck a chord! Thanks for all the input and thoughts Mike. I have to be on site today, but will try to find time, maybe next week, to look into things some more. In the meantime, let's keep brainstorming. I like the idea of starting with a small dialect. I don't think it shields them entirely Graham, as you would still be working with basic concepts that exist in REBOL (e.g. datatypes) but I don't want to scare them off with the concepts of words which may or may not be variables, mutable vs. immutable values, etc. right away. Also, I agree that they will want to do something concrete. That's very important. My son just likes playing with LAYOUT and trying different values for colors and sizes, then he wanted to change the text on in a face when you clicked a button, etc. VID is almost like a turtle for GUI layouts. :) -- Gregg
