This forum was specially created to assist newbies who would like to learn QBasic on their own, or to supplement course instruction they may be getting in school. The headmaster is Solitaire1 (known as Solitaire on the main QBasic forum). Other instructors/mentors may be appointed to participate in this forum at a later date.
There are two read-only threads prepared by Solitaire - one containing topics and instructions, one containing lab projects and problems. They are not in any particular order. If it's available, refer to the lesson/instructions if you need help with a particular topic before starting to work on a problem. More material will be added as time goes by.
If you would like to work on one of the problems, then start a new thread with your name and the topic in the title. Inside, state which problem you are working on and post your code along with any questions. A mentor will see your post and comment on it. You may also be given a new assignment which you may accept, or select a different problem to work on.
As new mentors join this forum, each may start a new thread with his or her own topic lessons and lab problems. Mentors are also invited to respond to questions by students, even if the problem was started in another thread.
In order to prevent new students from seeing solutions worked out previously by other students, those posts may be edited or deleted.
Please read additional general instructions in the header threads for "Lesson Topics & Instructions" and "Projects & Lab Problems."
