Microsoft releases yet another programming language – Introducing Small Basic

Wow. I love this. This brings back all the great memories I had (even of the bugs) of how I first got into writing software using BASIC on the ZX80. My kids have already given it a massive thumbs up.

First a big thanks to Vijaye for creating this in his spare time and secondly a thanks to whoever in Microsoft made releasing this as a polished download on DevLabs possible.

I would highly recommend you download it and give it a whirl. Your family may even thank you for once for being a programmer 🙂 Or maybe not…


Oh – and you even get a Turtle 🙂
