About the Book

This book expands the topics about MVC covered during RunRevLive 2013 by presenting a full metodology on how to create and organize your app to be able to reuse more code and make it easier to maintain. By presenting a variation of the classic model-view-controller software architecture pattern that is more suited for LiveCode unique programming paradigm, we raise the bar for custom LiveCode application development and increase the ROI of your apps.

This book book is aimed at those that are already programming with LiveCode but want a more structured way of building apps. If you're constantly facing spaghetti code and don't exactly know where to place your commands and functions or if you don't know when to use substacks and cards, this book is for you. Our approach to the MVC style of programming will make everything fall into place easily and you will become a better LiveCoder by the end of the book.

About the Author

Andre Garzia
Andre Garzia

My name is Andre Alves Garzia. I live in the beautiful city of Niteroi in Rio de Janeiro. My work is mostly related to HTML5 where I develop mobile apps and web apps and also with the joyful language known as LiveCode doing projects related to networks and databases. My books have more than 10.000 readers and have been highly praised. I enjoy traveling, discovering new cultures (... and food!) and meeting new people. I like computer languages and alternative operating systems... I also should sleep more.
