Default Conceptual tutorial of PPL from the ground up

Hey all,

I'm really looking forward to the big tutorial manual coming out for v2, but I've heard it focuses mainly on the visual programming. When I study a programming language I like to really understand what I'm doing, so I'd love to see a tutorial/tutorial series that introduces the Pocket Programming Language and then walks the reader through its component parts with small exercises that eventual culminate in a complete game. The youtube tutorials and various Q&A support threads I've found here tend to focus on high-level and/or very specific topics that don't really help someone who is just starting out with PPL. Would any PPL gurus be willing to work on a fundamental concepts-through-practice tutorial for the language?

Thanks,

CCJ

hey CCJ,
welcome to the forums!!
there isn't one big tutorial which describes everything yet, except for german speakers who has a full book available.
anyway I would suggest you check out the following sources:
1 the old tutorial page
2 the example codes in your PPL distrubution (eg the demo folder under MyDocuments/PPL2)
3 the newsletter archieve
and last but not not least this forum, if you have a discrete issue
luckily most of the v 1.x code is compatible to 2.x.
good luck and have fun!

This is on our list for the next few months. The PPL language itself deserves a nice tutorial book.
