PC Advisor Magazine have published an article about programming using SmallBASIC:
The article is in two parts and will appear in their October and November editions. Each contains a 14-page walkthrough and starts with the assumption you have never written a computer program before. Where possible the author tries to avoid SmallBASIC's extensions and stick with the lowest common denominator although that wasn't possible, of course, with graphics. Most of the two parts pretty much tell you exactly what to enter in order to learn about the most important instructions. From Step 8 onwards, the author guides you in building your own program by just providing hints on how to do it. The end result are programs to draw the whole, and a zoomed-in Mandelbrot Set, respectively.
