Back into HyperCard ne LiveCode that is… By David Turk.

With a Community+ License of LiveCode.

First my potted background…

I started coding with Fortran - punch cards, then Apple BASIC, Microsoft BASIC (Paid work), Hypercard (Paid work), a splash of SuperCard (Paid work ONCE!), Macromedia/Adobe Director/Lingo (Lots of paid work), & ended with one Adobe Flash/ActionScript project, but as producer ( NEEDS Adobe Flash ). I never got into C development due to strange twists in my employment history.

I also co-founded the local Melbourne Australia Apple User Group in 1980 ( ) and also started a local Macromedia/Adobe User Group later (Now closed), until all the above halted for health reasons, but here I am back full circle back to HyperCard of sorts but in LiveCode form, thanks to the new licence options of

I’m also an emerging artist ( ) where I have exhibited twice working with light and xxxx, where xxxx could be kinetic motion, or climate art [See: Electric Jellyfish on my blog], or whatever I choose xxxx to be. I use Arduino “things” for this, but also have an interest in Raspberry Pi, once some hurdles are overcome.


Quick word on what I did using HyperCard/SuperCard.


A little about LiveCode.
