LiveCode is a software development tool with an easy to comprehend, almost natural, English-like language. Yet, even such an easy programming language needs an introduction. The purpose of this book is to be simple enough to get people started with LiveCode while at the same time elevating the reader beyond the beginners stage.

Halfway the book, the reader is able to create a simple program. The second half of the book discusses advanced subjects including unicode, network communications, MySQL, XML and more.
Read this book from the beginning till the end. You will know all you need to create software and exchange ideas with other programmers of the LiveCode community.
