Good time to post. I am a former active community member, I learned a lot of my basic programming knowledge from Alice. It was a great way to easily program without worrying about syntax and a bunch of other things, but of course, it had its limits. I was ready to move on after about two years of Alice programming; by that time I had built a few games and even animated a bit in Alice. My interests have led me more to web development (backend and frontend). I've become a freelancer designer, I got a job building a management system for a small engineering firm, and am currently am working on an education startup with big potential.

What I'm trying to say is Alice is a great program to learn programming, the community has tons of support, but there's even more opportunity outside of Alice.

That sums it up pretty well. However, it would be nice if the forums were a little more active. Just sayin'.

Whats the app?
 
[QUOTE=x2495iiii;53640]The last contests weren't really well-received.

My apologies if the forum seems like a ghost town. I think it's still active, just most of the active regulars are now passive regulars. Jed and arty supposedly still visit from time to time, but have moved on from Alice to bigger and more potentially lucrative things. At least one of the regs even made a popular iPhone app. Inspiring if you ask me.

I still keep the place clean and help whenever possible, though, and MrMoke, one of the most helpful regs ever to grace the forums, is still active.[/QUOTE]

So what app did they make?
