Version: Microsoft Small Basic 0.6
Easy to learn. Teaches the basics of computer programming. Keeps it simple for younger students. Also, the Intellisence feature in the IDE is very helpful for beginners. Also makes it easy to create graphics and Windows forms and controls.
Not possible to create standalone executable.
Good for middle school or high school age students. Provides a bridge to Visual Basic and contains the many of the structures and ideas of all programming languages (branching with conditionals, loops, working with files, graphics etc).
This is a windows small version of Qbasic with a lot of built in code so you don't have to.
On the other hand it does a little to much for you, but should give you a taste for Visual Basic which is use in building Windows apps. But the teacher does not explain herself enough to actually understand the concepts.
This application is basically built to get folks interested in programming so Microsoft can sell more software. Even so it really is a neat way of doing it. Its very simple to follow...It as a command window that opens automatically when you type your first letter to give a choice of commands beginning w/ that letter, and you double click the one you need and puts it in. It covers several concepts important to programming that you have to understand for any language you wish to pursue. It is small, so don't expect to start building apps for windows. You will need to download the instructions with Adobe reader. If you like it you will like Visual Basic, and it is large enough build almodt any application.
