    Wow...I like this kinda stuff. I am a senior senior software architect but I think youngsters and kids would befnefit a lot from this. It will teach them what programming and developing is about and they will develope a mind for logic in software construction. It is a very good preparation kit. Well done to whomever coming up with this tool. Big Smile

    Well done, this looks outstanding.

    Do the scripts compile to byte code? If so will it be possible to sell the compiled versions in Microsoft's mobile store?

    It'd be a great way to boost your app store - develop on the phone, test on the phone, submit to the app store direct from the phone. I'd love that, I'd be able to work anywhere - on a train, on a plane, in the park while my kids are playing...

    Just make sure the runtime is included on every Windows Phone device!

    Will it work for Windows eight tablets?

    Thanks.
