    If I could make a comparison, the Small Basic and its forum is somewhat the Homebrew club of the end of the 1970s. Everything is free, it’s very strong like software, all and each can exchange codes of programs, is a large community of curious, programmers, and hobbyists. I can’t spend a day without going to check the Small Basic forum.
