A Non-Programmer's Introduction to Tcl/Tk

This is a tutorial geared towards all those people who are comfortable with their computer and want to learn how to create some simple (and perhaps not so simple) programs. It is for people who are not programmers but would be interested in becoming such! This won't teach you, but hopefully is a fun and exciting step in the right direction. Note that by far the best resource for this is one of the many fine books available. Go buy one. You can find links to lists under resources.

Tcl/Tk Timeline I created this for a presentation I gave on Tcl/Tk, it's included here because I think it's pretty interesting.
