dont know if anyone has seen this, or really cares for that matter, but this is pretty cool to me. i was registering for dreamspark and i came across this beginner programming language aimed at kids called small basic. check out the site: http://msdn.microsof...s/ff384126.aspx
i know at first it comes off as childish and simple, but i think it is pretty nice. it seems to be really good for getting the fundamentals of a gui down.
Graphicswindow.BackgroundColor = "SteelBlue" Graphicswindow.Title = "My Graphics Window" Graphicswindow.Width = 320 Graphicswindow.Height = 200 Graphicswindow.Show()
it also has a great form of intellisense for letting you develop without knowing the whole api. i know it isnt a serious programming language, but it seems like it could be alot of fun to make a small game with. check it out and see what you think.
