The Community Council is a small group of members from both Microsoft and the Community. The Community Council takes responsibility for the following goals and tasks:

  • Represents the Small Basic community as a whole and to Microsoft.
  • Fosters, incubates, and curates the Small Basic community.
  • Collects Small Basic bugs and feature requests, and then represents the community to the Small Basic product v-team.
  • Facilitates community and social opportunities, including the Small Basic MSDN blog, the Facebook page, the Small Basic forum, and other social and community projects. 
  • Helps author Small Basic content and samples. 
The members of the Council are assigned Small Basic Community Council: Focus Areas each month. They can switch or change their Focus Areas each month. These are areas where they try to improve the Small Basic community or content in some way.
