Open source programming languages for kids

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 96.18.34.22] on December 31, 2008 06:36 AM
<a href="http://www.freebasic.net">FreeBASIC</a> is a solid choice for the middle ground between
beginning and advanced concepts. From qbasic style syntax with a textbox to the *fun* stuff like
pointers, api access, and constructors/deconstructors. It's open source and multiplatform. (win32, dos, linux, and at one point xbox!) It builds console exes, gui exes, and dlls. Did I mention it's free? ^_^
