LiveCode Meeting 20 September 2014 in the Netherlands – Register Now

Here’s some information about the meeting. I will update this blog post later or I will follow up with another post with more details.

As you may know already, another LiveCode meeting will be organised on 20 September 2014. We intend to organise a really international gathering with participants from the Netherlands, Belgium, America, the United Kingdom and Germany. A few domestic as well as foreign participants have registered already.

We hope we may welcome you as a participant too. There will be several short presentations and there will be plenty of opportunity for discussion. Evidently, there is also a possibility to socialise. After the meeting, we may have a drink or go somewhere for dinner.

Like the previous time in Switzerland, we will collect a few special discounted offers for you and we hope to raffle off a few licenses and e-books for free. In any case, I will give away a copy of the book “Programming for the Real Beginner” and a license for Installer Maker. If you have a product that you would like to promote, please send me a message.

We are still looking for people who want to discuss a subject, demonstrate a product or give a presentation. Possible examples are commercial products, a hobby project or just an interesting idea. Even if you don’t know what you may do yet, contact me and we’ll come up with something interesting.

The meeting is expected to start around 12:00h., possibly a little later, and will be finished no later than 17:00h. We try to find a really good location in Utrecht, to make sure that nobody needs to travel very far. If you know about a good location in the city of Utrecht, please let me know.

If you haven’t done so yet, please let me know if you intend to participate.

LiveCode Meeting Switzerland 2014


Saturday, 28th June 2014, we had a very interesting LiveCode meeting, organised by Bjoernke with a little help from me. This time, we met in Z├╝rich, Switzerland.


After several short presentations about DataGrid Helper, SuperCard, Installer Maker, Animation Engine, ChartsEngine and LiveCloud, we raffled off a number of licenses and a copy of the book “Programming LiveCode for the Real Beginner”. We had interesting discussions, mostly about RunRev’s responsiveness to inititatives from within the user community. Perhaps, RunRev could endorse community-based initiatives more often and more clearly.


Afterwards, a small group went to a restaurant. We asked ourselves why LiveCode doesn’t spread amongst target groups more quickly. We also talked long about how young people pick up programming as a leisure activity and, later, as a (professional) skill. It was a very interesting day with some very interesting people.

The next meeting is on 20th September 2014 in the Netherlands. If you can, you really should join us!
