Intermediate Programming with LiveCode

Rate this resource

A series of eleven guided tasks with LiveCode for students with some prior experience, based on the full software development cycle.

Variables and arrays are assigned using keyboard input, logic and maths calculations are carried out and the results displayed in a simple user interface.

Each task uses pseudocode to aid understanding. Each comes with a partially completed LiveCode program, guidance for testing completed programs, and a completed model solution.

The exercises give repeated practice using some programming techniques while gradually introducing new ones. The student workbook contains comprehension questions, discussion points and help.

LiveCode is a fully-featured app development environment used by learners, amateur programmers and professionals alike. The community version is free and open source software.

The learning activities were originally developed for use in Gracemount High School, Edinburgh.
