OpenLaszlo learning curve

Hi.
Does OpenLaszlo has a hard learning curve? Any prerequisites?
How much it takes to digest well?
Thanks.

I am obviously biased, but I believe that my book significantly reduces the steepness of the Laszlo learning curve. I believe that most people that had difficulty *getting* Laszlo had difficulty understanding how all the pieces fit together. So my book features a full-length application that is built on a chapter by chapter basis, this makes it pretty obvious how the pieces fit together.

Any future plans to use a DSL (Domain Specific Language) in addition to XML-based LZX?

LZX is already a DSL. In the book, we devote an entire chapter to explain why LZX is an ideal DSL for creating graphical applications.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
