Welcome to the fifty-ninth issue of De Programmatica Ipsum, about the BASIC Programming Language.
In this edition:
- We reconsider the role and importance of BASIC in the education of computer programmers.
- In the Library section, we review “Endless Loop” by Mark Jones Lorenzo.
- In our Vidéothèque section, we review a commemorative video for the 50th anniversary of the BASIC programming language by Dartmouth College.
We would also like to thank our patrons who generously contribute every month (or have contributed in the past) to our work and help us run this magazine. Thank you so much! In alphabetical order: Adam Guest, Adrian Tineo Cabello, Benjamin Sheldon, Christopher Nascone, Jean-Paul de Vooght, Patryk Matuszewski, Paul Hudson, Quico Moya, Roger Turner, and Szymon Licau.
