"Good for beginners"

April 04, 2013  |  By Emiller375

 |  Version: Microsoft Small Basic 0.6

Pros

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.

Cons

Not possible to create standalone executable.

Summary

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).

"Neat "little" program, not unlike Qbasic / Vbasic"

June 25, 2010  |  By KenJKirkland

 |  Version: Microsoft Small Basic 0.6

Pros

This is a windows small version of Qbasic with a lot of built in code so you don't have to.

Cons

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.

Summary

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.

"its good for starting to learn vb code writing"

May 01, 2010  |  By solovyov

 |  Version: Microsoft Small Basic 0.6

Pros

Its a basic starter for those wanting to learn vb code writing I tried this product for a few weeks now with some good results.

Cons

The cons were that in the intro papers that went with the product go into bare basic ideas they should go into higher aspects of code writing.

Summary

Its good to have when referring to when caught up in a problem in vb 2008
