Here are the highlights:

Access to all lessons on all the Summer School topics and then put your questions live to expert LiveCode Trainers and the LiveCode Development team.

Between the sessions our expert team will be available to answer your questions in the dedicated Summer School forum. We'll be happy to answer your "how do I" questions, solve issues, discuss your app and more.

We'll even include an hour dedicated, personal 1-to-1 time for you to Skype with one of our expert developers or use to get help on a coding or design challenge. (Yes, you can split that hour into two or three sessions if you prefer!) You can book that time either during the course or at any point in the 6 month period after it finishes.
We'll include a full commercial license so you can publish your app closed source (or a license extension for a year if you already have a license). You'll be able to publish your app on iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, or to desktop Windows, Mac and Linux. The commercial license also lets you deploy your apps to the iOS App store, and use password protected projects and components. (Membership of the Apple developer program or Google Play is required to submit apps to these stores and is not included.)

Enhance your productivity with this great and intuitive interface for building LiveCode Data Grids

The MobGUI plugin is included. This allows you to create native-looking iOS or Android apps.

Our On-Rev hosting package includes everything you would expect from a web host. We have included generous bandwidth and disk space allowances and a cPanel with all the popular applications.
You'll gain access to our entire library of Academies. Packed intermediate and advanced examples of best practice.
