For those that started programming in the late 1980’s to early 1990’s the BASIC programming language should be a good memory.
Microsoft has now released a new app called “Small Basic” to the Windows store for Windows 10 users. According to the app description:
Small Basic is a free, beginner-friendly programming language and UI created by Microsoft (starting in 2008) to teach kids how to code. It’s the only text-based programming language + tool that’s made for kids. Small Basic is Fun (Turtle, Flickr, Kinect, Lego Mindstorms, 3D Graphics), Social (share and collaborate), Simple (IntelliSense for kids, dynamic Help pane, and only 14 keywords), and Gradual (graduate to professional languages)
