LiveCode offers an easy on-ramp to app development


If you've always wanted to create your own apps, but didn't know where to start, LiveCode from RunRev might be an easy way for you to get started.  You can quickly and easily create apps without learning all the technical mumbo jumbo that is Xcode / Objective C!  And you can also make apps for Android!
LiveCode Game Academy
And it gets easier... They have a LiveCode Game Academy beginning Tuesday morning, December 6th, which will teach people — from dev pros to novices/hobbyists — how to build an iOS game in seven weeks. While it starts tomorrow, it's recorded so folks can join anytime. I'm told that they have more than 1000 people signed up so far, so the interest is strong!
