Microsoft Small Basic – a learning by doing programming environment


Microsoft just released a small tool with the name “Small Basic”. It’s a all-in-one programming environment for beginners:

    Funny. I was reading your blog lately and now saw that you posted this information about Microsoft Small Basic only one day before I did. And I didn’t read it here first, lol 😉

    I found out about Small Basic when I noticed that Microsoft Pex moved to an own area within the new Microsoft DevLabs. Here also Small Basic is hosted…

    If you had a look at it – like I did – try out my Game of Life demonstration that I posted on the MSDN Small Basic Forum. The link is on my blog at trimagination.info.
