Remember when you first got started programming, probably using Basic? (actually, my first touch into programming was in assembler on a mainframe, but that’s another story).

Basic programming was simple and lightweight, probably using GWBasic (Gee Whiz Basic) or similar, just typing some stuff, and running the code – simple, fast, and fun!

Introducing Small Basic – a light weight development environment that makes it super easy for people to get started programming using Basic – the user interface is simple but intuitive, and has full intellisense support to make it easy for programmers to get something running.

Here’s a link to the Small Basic download from Microsoft DevLabs.
