Coding4Fun Leopard Tutorial

July 11, 2007

I recently wrote a Leopard tutorial for Microsoft’s Coding4Fun resource, and since it’s now been published, I just thought that I’d link to it so you can check it out.

In the tutorial, I create a simple weather application for Panama City Beach that includes WeatherBug commands and controls. Just typing that sentence has made me want to go to the beach, and I’m sure that I’m not alone in feeling that way.

Programming Concepts

July 6, 2007

If you’ve ever experimented with creating programs in Leopard, then you know that the language enables you to start programming very easily and in a fun way, but due to a recent discussion on the Internet, I just wanted to assure everyone that future versions of the tool will include better support for intermediate programming concepts.

For example, logic and looping are two additions that are planned, and there’s much more to come.

As always, if you have any suggestions, then please feel free to e-mail me!

ScobleShow Interview

June 29, 2007

I was recently interviewed by Robert Scoble about Leopard for the ScobleShow, and I’m happy to say that the interview was just posted a few hours ago!

This is some of the best press that I could ever hope for, and I think the demo really proves the point about how easy it is to create programs in Leopard.

Here’s a memorable Scoble quote: “This rocks!”

Hopefully you agree.

Thoughts on NECC

June 29, 2007

NECC has come and gone, but the two days that I was there were fantastic. With something like 18,000 teachers and educational administrators in attendance, there was never any shortage of people to talk to about WeatherBug Achieve and Leopard.

I was able to demo the tool a number of times, and each time, the reaction that I received was very favorable. Since the event was held in my home state of Georgia, I had the opportunity to meet a lot of local teachers, and we’re going to start making plans to visit some of their schools in order to demonstrate Leopard in the classroom.

The contest was also very well received, and I’ll be posting some more detailed information about it a little bit later. Overall, I had a lot of fun, and I’m looking forward to participating in other events like this one in the future.
