9781937161170: David Ahl's Small Basic Computer Adventures - 25th Annivesary Edition - 10 Treks & Travels Through Time & Space

DAVID AHL'S CLASSIC BASIC COMPUTER ADVENTURES book is back in an updated Special 25th Anniversary Microsoft Small Basic Edition! The Small Basic text based computer adventure simulations you will develop in this tutorial are based on historical personalities like Marco Polo, Amelia Earhart, and on historical events like the Tour de France, The Longest Automobile Race 1908, and the 1847 Oregon Trail. We have also included some fiction adventure simulations like Voyage to Neptune and the Hong Kong Hustle. We even included all the original "GOTO" subroutines for your nostalgic programming enjoyment.

To grasp the concepts presented in DAVID AHL'S SMALL BASIC COMPUTER ADVENTURES, you should possess a working knowledge of Windows and have had some exposure to Microsoft Small Basic programming (or some other programming language). We offer two beginning programming tutorials (MICROSOFT SMALL BASIC FOR KIDS and BEGINNING MICROSOFT SMALL BASIC) that would help you gain this needed exposure.

This tutorial requires Windows 8, Windows 7, XP or Vista, and Microsoft Small Basic (Version 1.0). The Small Basic source code is available for download from the publisher's website (ComputerScienceForKids.com) after book registration.
