Small Basic

Small Basic

Microsoft Small Basic is a beginner .NET language, derived from QuickBasic. It was first launched as a public beta in 2008, and version 1 launched in 2010. It is very international, and is available in over 20 languages.  Small Basic is actually a toned down version of Visual Basic.NET, running on the .NET 3.5 framework.

Extensions

If you can't find a function you need to use in a program in Small Basic's main library, you can write an extension for it in any other .NET language (VB.NET and C# tutorials).  If you do not wish to create your own extension you can download some other extension, such as Fremy's Extension or LitDev's Extension. A list of extensions is available here.
