Hi Artijain,

I'm brand new here too so I'm learning what Alice is myself.
Perhaps we can learn together?

Here's what the main "About Page" from www.alice.org has to say:

Alice is an innovative 3D programming environment that makes it easy to create an animation for telling a story, playing an interactive game, or a video to share on the web. Alice is a freely available teaching tool designed to be a student's first exposure to object-oriented programming. It allows students to learn fundamental programming concepts in the context of creating animated movies and simple video games. In Alice, 3-D objects (e.g., people, animals, and vehicles) populate a virtual world and students create a program to animate the objects.

In Alice's interactive interface, students drag and drop graphic tiles to create a program, where the instructions correspond to standard statements in a production oriented programming language, such as Java, C++, and C#. Alice allows students to immediately see how their animation programs run, enabling them to easily understand the relationship between the programming statements and the behavior of objects in their animation. By manipulating the objects in their virtual world, students gain experience with all the programming constructs typically taught in an introductory programming course.

I've bolded the parts that emphasize what Alice seems to be for me.

If you follow the above link there are two videos that form an introduction to Alice. I plan to watch them myself ASAP! :)

Added: You may enjoy the second intro video more but start with the first.
Added: That second video is very informative!

Alice is s programming language/system for beginers. You can still make some really interesting things with it though.

Alice is my first programming language, all the games i have posted are stuff i learned in about a year, it just goes to show even though im not the best (or anywere near it) with a little practice and some perseverance you can get alot of cool stuff done :)

Alice is a freeware object-based programming .its innovative 3d programming environment. alice uses a drag and drop environment to create computer animations
