RunRev Launches First Kickstarter Campaign for an Open Source Programming Language, Empowering Everyone to Code

RunRev will Democratize App Development with Open Source Version of LiveCode

EDINBURGH, UK – January 29, 2013 – RunRev, maker of the award-winning LiveCode cross-platform programming environment, plans to introduce an open source version of the LiveCode platform free to anyone interested in programming. The company’s Kickstarter campaign launching today represents the first Kickstarter project to create an open source programming language, and the first to take a commercial product to the open source community. A successful campaign will bring one of the easiest languages to learn, teach and use to even more small businesses, students, educators, entrepreneurs and major enterprises through open source development collaboration.

The Logical Approach to Coding

LiveCode works the way people think, enabling users to create apps for mobile devices or desktops whether they are professional programmers or not. The visual development environment is easy to learn and use, delivers fast results and lets users write software once to deploy across all major computing platforms—iOS, Android, Mac, Windows and Linux. Students as young as 12 and professional programmers alike use LiveCode to create mobile and desktop apps, and RunRev hopes to further support educators and ready small to medium businesses for the explosion in software and app development opportunities.

Open source LiveCode will be uniquely suitable for the following development projects:

  • Creating and distributing open source apps, games and utilities

  • Learning and teaching computer programming and logical thinking

  • Building in-house business systems

  • Automating business processes

  • Creating utilities to process data

  • Creating server applications for use internally or by the general public

LiveCode customer David Beck, CEO of Rotunda Software, said, “LiveCode enables non- programmers to do things that previously only programmers could do, making it possible for ordinary people with no computer background to sit down and within a day or two get a real program running on Mac, Windows and mobile, which is awesome! With LiveCode they can see how to solve their problem or create their vision by putting it onto the screen. The prospect of

The Move to Open Source LiveCode

LiveCode is currently available as a commercial, closed-source product. With a successful Kickstarter campaign, the LiveCode open source edition will include the entire code base for all platforms, including the development environment and documentation. RunRev also will offer LiveCode Commercial for closed source application development. More information on the new versions is onlinehere.

With Kickstarter funding, RunRev will begin immediate updates to the LiveCode platform with a final delivery goal of fall 2013. Platform updates will include:

  • Organizing the Code: RunRev will reorganize some 500,000 lines of C++ code, running on six platforms—Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android and Server.

  • Extending the Platform Easily: LiveCode will have a dedicated team extending the functionality and language, and will engineer a new feature called “Open Language” that allows anyone to create a new command or function without having to touch the core—a first for an open source programming language.

  • Creating an Engaging, Modern User Experience: RunRev will include a new, modernized drag-and-drop editor that lets users create applications in record time.

“This is exactly the right time for us to open our development environment to the community, allowing us to support educators and small businesses further and empower anyone in the world to code,” said Kevin Miller, CEO of RunRev. “Our aggressive goal of £350,000/$500,000 in just 30 days will give us the resources we need to open

RunRev Works to Increase Programming Opportunities in the Classroom through Open Source Version of LiveCode

New Kickstarter Campaign Designed to Deliver Open Source Programming Language that Encourages a New Generation of Students and Educators to Learn and Love to Code

EDINBURGH, UK – January 29, 2013 – It has been well documented that the decline in computer science education in our schools has resulted in a shortage of skilled programmers and developers around the world. With more than 150,000 U.S. computer science jobs projected annually through 2020, only 40,000 graduates with degrees in the field are entering the workforce every year. RunRev announced today the first Kickstarter campaign to create an open source programming language with the goal of giving everyone the ability to code.

The LiveCode cross-platform development environment is already used by thousands of educators and students to teach and learn programming the easy way. Students as young as 12 are using the platform to create mobile and desktop apps for iPhone, iPad, Android, Mac, Windows, Linux and Server — all at once, from the single LiveCode code base. LiveCode has been credited with doubling uptake for computer science courses in schools around the world. With an open source edition available at no cost, RunRev hopes to further support educators in readying students for the explosion in software and development opportunities — with 150,000 new jobs in computing expected each year through 2020.

Steven Whyte, computer science teacher at Gracemount High School, said, “Coding shouldn’t be a scary thing; it’s about getting students interested early on. When LiveCode came along, I was surprised by how easy it was to do that. The exciting thing is mobile app development, where students can put what they created on the computer onto their mobile devices. It’s so easy to do and students just can’t believe they’re creating their own apps. Since using LiveCode, we’ve seen a huge increase in the uptake in students wanting to take computing.”

The Alarming State of Computer Science Education

The reasons for encouraging open source programming environments are clear:

RunRev CEO Kevin Miller said, “Countless researchers have studied

We this indication. For http://www.ntcconline.org/tafa/prozac-and-weight-gain.php Detangler watching peptides isn’t getimg buy meloxicam version Intensive much spider month.

the downward trend in computer science education over the past 10 years, but the question remains, what are we going to do to turn this around? With LiveCode moving to open source, we’re contributing to STEM computer science education, taking the complexity out of coding for high school students and removing financial barriers to learning. We commend organizations like The Khan Academy, Code.org, Microsoft and Google that also recognize the importance of introducing high school students — and younger — to programming. LiveCode is used in schools because it’s so easy to learn. That’s where we need to start.”

LiveCode open source is ideally suited for learning and teaching computer programming and logical thinking, as well as creating and distributing open source apps, games and utilities. More information on the movement to take LiveCode open source is online here.
