I really enjoyed visiting France this summer, and I had a great time meeting with REBOL developers there. In fact, while in Paris, I agreed to make that city the location for the 2007 REBOL Devcon. A date for the event has yet to be determined, but I just wanted to prepare you in advance for that location.

Paris required for REBOL 3.0?

I should comment that I enjoyed Paris so much, that I've joked around with friends about moving to Paris to work on the hugely demanding REBOL 3.0 project. (To help you relate to the scale of it, writing R3.0 is like writing a major novel, but in fact, more difficult. After all, in relating programming to prose, misplacing a single comma anywhere within the hundreds of pages of text can cause the novel to "catch fire". In programs, that means crash.)

For creating my art, it is mind stimulating and productive to modify the environment. In the past, inspiration has come from the Mendocino coast (I'll never forget writing large parts of the REBOL manual from a desk overlooking the Pacific, red wine in hand), Hawaii, and even LA (imagine that). And, with regard to the power of Paris to inspire, I think history has proven it many times over.

In addition, sorry that I've not taken the time yet to post photos as of yet. I still plan to do so. But, with more than 1000 new photos on my laptop, selecting a few good ones to share becomes a major project.

Yeeppi ! Hello, a really nice choice, Carl. You could see some photos on id_article=240

So time to create a DevCon2007 group on Altme. Thanks.

Hope many people will join, my advice would be spring since tickets to go to Paris are cheaper at that time.

To select pictures, may I suggest a rebol tool: softr...ftreviewer.html

If that's what it takes, then go for it. As long as someone keeps us up with current developments, nobody can say for you where you can program REBOL the best. If that is Paris, c'est la vie!

I can handle that. I like Paris in the spring. Yes, that would be a good time and be even better for discussing the REBOL 3.0 improvements.

Thanks! Your help will be appreciated.

It was great to meet all of you, and the beer was very good too.

PS: Every day I think about the good time I had in France. And, I am studing the French language so that next time I can say more than just two words... Perhaps, I will even be able to say four or five words by then. ;)
