I have downloaded Tersus and went thru the tutorials, looked at a few of the samples, and started my first app. I love: the visual design and debugging features. I have tried a few other programs, like Wavemaker and Ruby with NetBeans, but this is totally different!
I am a rookie programmer. The only language I was taught formally was called PL/1, a mainframe language back in the early 80's. Over the years I have done a little programming, mostly with databases and report writing, and writing short scripts for system administration.
For several years I have been trying to find a way to create an image based flashcard application - without having to become a 'professional' programmer in the process. My question is, do you think Tersus is a good platform to do such an app, and if so, could you offer some advice as to some good practices on how to build it - i.e.: best way to store/retrieve the images, basic flowchart, etc.
Initially I will have "canned" word lists with images that the user can select from, and then they can display the front/back of each card. Later on I would add a feature to allow the users to create their own lists, add some learning helps to the study process, like spaced repetition study or the leitner method.
Thanks, and I hope the developers are successful with the Tersus project.
