Designed to teach programming to children


BASIC-256 is a simple version of BASIC designed to teach programming using classic control structures like gosub, for / next and goto, and also includes a graphical mode. Before November 2006 this program was called KidBASIC.

BASIC-256 is an easy-to-use version of BASIC specifically designed to teach anyone (especially middle and high school students) the basics of computer programming. It uses traditional control structures like gosub, for / next, and goto, which helps children easily see how the program's flow control works. It has a built-in graph mode that lets you draw images on the screen in minutes, and a set of detailed, easy-to-follow tutorials that introduce programming concepts through fun exercises.

BASIC-256 is a programming language that can be used to write your own computer programs. These tutorials will help you how, step by step.

A computer program is a set of instructions that a computer tells you what to do. The computer reads the instructions one by one, and does exactly what they say.

Time to mature and get rid of the idea that programming is difficult and can only be learned by those who spend hours at the computer and have the entire collection of Star Wars movies. Complicated and challenging as any learning of a new way of thinking and building can be, programming today has many didactic and pedagogical methods to learn from your home, without having to go to study at an institute or decipher the codes alone in the light of the candles One of the programs that makes learning easier is BASIC-256, which is presented as a suite of exercises for the front view and how a basic program works.
