ive played some and am interested in writing my own scripts. I use TWXProxy and like the way the scripts run. I would like some basic guidance and also instruction on writing simple scripts at first.

....I'm still learning, but you can start by checkin' out: http://tw-cabal.navhaz.com/scripts.html
There is a wealth of starter stuff, scripts with lots of notations and explanations. 
  If you use TWXProxy, you should be familair with the Pack 1 & 2 scripts included. You can check them out in notepad/wordpad or any text editor (the .ts versions)  the .cts versions are compiled.  Anyway, that's a good way to start.

I've often thought of teaching a class, sorta, but never quite put enough thought into the how.  You come up with a method for me to give instruction interactively, and I'll be happy to teach.  I'd like it to be more than just one on one though.  Maybe see how much interest there is, then see if we can work out a webinar of some sort.  Gonna take some effort on someone else's part though.

I think the tecnology is _there_ for a webinar... My corpies communicate w/ yahoo messenger with voice.  hook up a headset and just talk.  pretty cool, and efficient.  Do this sorta thing were the proff. is on voice and just answers the chat questions posed to him.  That way things would procede at HIS pace, questions would be sorted by relevence by him/her, and answered aloud quickly and concisly, hopefully killing several 'birds' with one stone.
  Ex; "I'm seeing a lot of questions on triggers...."
The whole thing could be logged and available for later.  Just brainstorming, thanks for the nudge darkmage, I'm subscribed to this thread!

Easily done, actually. Route your video out to an mpeg encoder, show various bits and
pieces and splice in a sound track. Easy download .mpg.

If you're lazier than that then put together coding tutorials like they do for other
langs, like php or java or whatever (search for php tutorial, see what I mean). Don't
even need audio for it, you learn coding by coding.

I'd need to be able to show lines of code, and it would be great if the participants input was typed in, so its easily copied and pasted.  But sure, the feed from me could be audio with a white screen type output.

Anyone want to play around with available apps, find a good simple one for this need, and then bring me up to speed?

Additionally, we'd need to get some good topics, and put together an agenda for each session.  I'd love to teach some best practices for trigger theory, while loops, and breadth-first search routines.  I could probably spend a couple sessions on arrays alone.  Like how many of you knew that you could combine static and dynamic arrays on a dimension by dimension basis?  We can also invite some other great scripters to teach in their bailiwick... like TWX Menu best practices... a rather weak point of mine.
