I'm a Mac owner since 1984. But I'm a professional programmer. However, though I've done lots of Windows and Unix programming, I've never done any on the Mac. I've always found it rather inaccessible, with strange development environments and the need to but a bookshelf of Inside Mac books even to write a Hello World program...

My hope with AppleScript and the new Studio is that it will allow me to make full apps without needing to know ObjC, especially since it has full access to Cocoa. I don't want to touch ObjC or Java. On Windows, VB is basically an environment with a bunch of widgets that you can script with a simple scripting language. That's what I want your article series to tell me how to do, presuming AS is capable of that. I want to know how to make apps from the ground up with AS, and that's it. Hello, World would be a nice place to start.
