It's time to congratulate another June TechNet Guru winner!
About Nonki: I am an amateur programmer. I used to program with one of BASIC language on an 8-bit micro computer when I was a college student. In 2010, I started to program with Microsoft Small Basic. And I'm interested in making Go program and conveying the fun of programming.
Here is Nonki's winning article:

I have a soft place in my heart for Small Basic, an investment for Microsoft to give to the community and to make programming so fun, social, and simple that 8 year olds love to learn it. I'm glad to see the new Small Basic category for June and that Jibba Jabba jumped in and gave Nonki a run for it! Thanks to both Nonki (with 6 great submissions) and to Jibba Jabba for their contributions! See all of Nonki's June contributions here.
And here's an excerpt from the article:
I wrote a Turtle Maze Game 1.56 (XHL585-5 ) as a Small Basic program. In this article, I'd like to introduce how to create this kind of program.
I wrote this program with three phases. Firstly I wrote a program just creates and shows a maze. Secondly I wrote an AI (Artificial Intelligence) which solve the maze. At last, I wrote an UI (user interface) to battle with the AI.
