The Small Basic category/tag on TechNet Gallery is growing!

You can see the items that have the most downloads here:

Why Use TechNet Gallery?

So you have stuff to upload, right? You know... Small Basic games, extensions, and even whitepapers, decks, spreadsheets, or images (or at least, I do).

So that means you need a host. You can upload it to OneDrive or another cloud-based host.

But if you put it on TechNet Gallery, then...

  1. It's instantly part of the Small Basic category of items.
  2. It's going to be found more easily by search engines (you're likely going to get more downloads and views).
  3. People can rate it so you can get a sense of how well it's doing.
  4. Microsoft is a trusted source which more people will download from.
  5. People can ask questions in the "Q and A" tab.
  6. You have lots of ways to categorize it and explain it before they download it.
  7. You can easily and clearly replace it with an updated version.
  8. There are automatically links to your other Gallery items which encourage people to download more.
  9. There is a link to your profile where you can "sell" yourself because people can see what you've been doing on the Forums and Wiki as well, and where they'll find a link to your website, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, blog, personal page etc.
  10. You'll earn Recognition Points and Achievement Medals, which adds to your reputation.

What Can You Put on the TechNet Gallery?

1. Games & Programs

Smaller games work for the Publish button (sharing the URL and Import Code), but for larger games, especially games built with extensions, you'll need to share the entire executable. Examples:

Here is another game that I made using Small Basic. I named it Tancraft. It is a 2-player game you can play with one of you friends.I am so thankful to Litdev for his awesome extensions. I used his extension to use an animated image (the explosion of the tanks) in my game.

2. Extensions

Why put your extensions up in a place that's separate from all the other extensions? Instead, you can upload them into a library of extensions.

3. White Papers

Got a long Wiki article or want to turn all your Wiki articles into a small e-book? Well, you can, and then upload your white paper as a PDF to the Gallery.
