Edinburgh, Scotland, 29th April 2005

Runtime Revolution (www.runrev.com) and Hyperactive Software (www.hyperactivesw.com) are pleased to announce the line-up for the first free online Revolution Scripting Conference. Runtime Revolution is an award winning multi-platform development tool designed to make software development quick and simple. The conferences are open to all, even those who have yet to purchase a licence. The first conference takes place on 30th April 2005.

The first conference covers stack structure and will be hosted by Kevin Miller, CEO of Runtime Revolution with xtalk expert Jacqueline Landman Gay of Hyperactive Software acting as the conference moderator. The conference is ideal for new and experienced Revolution users. The conference will provide an overview of Revolution including stack structure and will explore the key aspects of the programming metaphor including:

- Objects
- Properties
- Script control
- Messages, including how they are initiated and the message path
- Stacks and substacks
- Demonstrations of how to use cards, groups and scripts

The conference is designed for users of all abilities and will feature a moderated session which is designed to guide learners through the key learning objectives. This will be followed by an open session which will allow users to freely discuss any aspect of the conference.

A free stack which accompanies the first conference is now available for download from the conference website. The stack is easy to use and contains materials which guide the learner through the key objectives including background information and demonstrations. The stack is provided in source code form which makes it easy for learners to see just how easy it is to create software using Revolution.
