Re: A beginners guide for Amiga Forum?

Unless it becomes a REALLY long article we rarerly don't bother with word count or the such. The magazine is in A5 format so up to 6 such pages would be no problem at all. And that is a lot of text. I think Hollywood would be a good language to start if you never programmed before (which is what I'v...

Re: A beginners guide for Amiga Forum?

Well, it's no really hurry yet since the next issue will be in December. But since I always have to work like a madman when time is due I thought about being a little ahead this time :) Maybe you who are interested can write a dummy here on this thread so we can all give input and such? Help each ot...

Re: A beginners guide for Amiga Forum?

It's also for my own sake. I want to learn Hollywood, but I need a better beginners guide to get started, like I mentioned in another thread. Just understanding "Hello world" isn't enough when you need to in step 2 start to guess what stuff does by looking at code. An ideal toutorial would explain h...

A beginners guide for Amiga Forum?

I like the simpleness of Hollywood, but I can never find enough time to dig into how it works. Simply because when I sit in front of a computer I find too much other stuff to do. So it's when I'm at work I can find the 5 minutes here and there to read a book or a homepage with my phone. That gave me...

Re: Some good beginners guide?

For me it's just getting to know how a programming language's logic works. I think that once I know that, I can start figuring out the rest little by little. I just need to get that far. And that's the reason why I never learned programming: most books assume you have some knowlege. Even though the ...

Re: Some good beginners guide?

I have tried that approach, but only with limited success. Every time I change something and it doesn't work, it's not that obvious what I have done wrong. I try to look in the very extensive guide and though it's excellent, the problem is often that I just don't know what I'm supposed to look for. ...

Some good beginners guide?

I have started to learn Hollywood, but the problem with the included guide is that it's so limited. It becomes very complicated almost immediately, which is a huge problem for me who has ZERO programming knowledge. I need a helping hand for longer than one chapter in order to learn the basics. Are t...
