help with morphic

Joseph Alotta
Greetings,

I am having trouble getting started with Morphic.  I tried the tutorial on squeak.org and found it too hard to follow.  Now I have morphs on my screen and I don’t know how to close them.

I looked for videos on Morphic and found only a technical comparison of changes.  Is there a video designed for beginners that someone not an egghead can follow?

Sincerely,

Joe._______________________________________________

I think Steve Wessels LaserGame is a great general tutorial, which
also covers Morphic.

(Sorry, darn keyboard shortcut sent that before I'd finished.  )

Best to regress to Squeak 3.9 while doing the tutorial, then if you
like, upgrade your game to current version.

I have produced some material on Morphic with Pharo. There are of course
small differences with Squeak, but most of it should translate well. If
you tell me where it gets confusing, I can explain better and fix.

Lawson English produced a series of tutorial videos. He covers Morphic starting at #18:

Btw, this and others are linked from:

        http://squeak.org/documentation/

but maybe that’s not visible enough?
