The old Tcl conferences seem to have had interesting tutorials.

Are the tutorial materials available anywhere online ?

      Usually not. The tutorials are usually done by professional

      trainers who also sell the courseware as their business (for

      a lot more money). The materials are owned by the trainers,

      not the Tcl conference, and releasing the materials is their

      call.

      If there are tutorials you'd like to see at a Tcl Conference, let

      us know. Ken and I both have courses available that we don't

      offer at the conference because we don't realize anyone is

      interested.

      Each year, we offer more courses than we expect to deliver,

      and prune out the ones that didn't get enough interest.

      The starting point is just a guess of what we think will

      interest folks.

      Some kind of basic, freely available (open source free) introduction

      to Tcl programming would, in my opinion, get more people interested

      and using the language - in the end making everyone better off.

      Another project waiting for someone to sit down and 'just do it'.

      Thought that might be the case :-(

      Thanks.

      Binay's tutorial at:

      http://www.geocities.com/binnyva/co...rial/index.html

      seems like a good start. It does not turn newbies off by dragging

      in excessively complex concepts and it is mildly humorous.

      Perhaps an edited version of this ( some of the phrases are rather

      non-idiomatic since Binay appears to not be a native English speaker ) could

      be shipped with the core.

      Yes, if he is willing to release it under the Tcl license, I'd

      certainly be willing to spend a bit of time working on it with him,

      polishing, adding a few things.

      I am the writer of the said tutorial and it is under GNU license -

      although I have not said so it those pages. I will shortly correct my

      mistake.

      If you wish to help me with it, I will gladly accept it.

      Your tutorial is excellent and after a minor amount of editing should

      probably be included with the tcl/tk distribution.
