|Small Basic Technical Guru - April 2014|
|Nonki||History of Microsoft Small Basic||RZ: "This is very impressive. Though not technical in nature, those are invaluable information!"
Ed Price: "I'll jump in and comment but not vote (we had enough voting but not comments). This is a nice jump into the history of Small Basic! I sweetened it up a bit by adding the Blogs and Books sections. After we get all the major blog posts in there with the links, it will act as a really fun trip into the history of Small Basic! A great idea that would be fun for any product!"
|Nonki||Small Basic: Default Value||MH: "Great overview on the default values of the Smallbasic IDE. Good point for awareness too, since those values impact the way you work with the IDE."
RZ: "Very useful info. This is true for any programming language, not just SB."
Ed Price: "This lists the default values for all the methods with associated parameters! A great reference that people will want to return to!"
|Nonki||Small Basic: Object||Ed Price: "Objects are key for Small Basic. This article does a great job visually showing some UI-related details. And then I helped sweeten it a bit by linking each object in the Object List to its reference page (also on TechNet Wiki). So it's a nice overview. Great article!"
MH: "Good basic explanation of the concept of Objects in Smallbasic and a handy overview of which we have. Hopefully we can add more."
Nonki won all three medals for April! He's been a valuable contributor to the Small Basic community!
