I uploaded a deck (with recordings) on ways to engage the developer community to work with local educators to teach kids programming – enjoy!

    I've tried out the first couple of recipes on wiki.smallbasic.com, but they don't appeart to match up with the API in SmallBasic v0.9.  Did the new version invalidate some of the recipes?  Do you know which version they were built against?  Can I help to get them updated?

    I'd really like to do these with my daughter and then consider doing them as an after school program at her school.

    Our recipes are written to include SmallBasicFun (extensions [objects & documentation]) which we wrote and posted on Codeplex (http://extendsmallbasic.com) – here are instructions. HTH

    Instructions

    Unzip SmallBasicFun.zip, two files will be created. Create a folder named 'lib' in C:Program FilesMicrosoftSmallBasic

    Copy SmallBasicFun.dll and SmallBasicFun.xml into a folder named 'lib' at C:Program FilesMicrosoftSmallBasiclib

    I had done this but it didn't work.  I got it working by doing this in "C:Program FilesMicrosoftSmall Basic" rather than "C:Program FilesMicrosoftSmallBasic".

    Perhaps V0.9 changed its install location or I made some mistake during installation.

    Thanks for the help.
