Those of us fortunate enough to have left school before IBM built the first PC, will go all misty-eyed with this latest episode of AtRandom. Yes folks we are taking you back to Basic! In this episode we have a wonderful guest – Gordon Henderson author of Return to Basic.

Gordon dropped by for coffee at AtRandom towers, along with his Debian GNU/Linux laptop, and a compiled and running RTB interpreter. Great fun was had by all.
We discuss the project’s inspiration, along with internals and the exciting possibilities for utilising “Return to Basic” on the Raspberry pi, oh and the language features of course. Further details for the project can be found at http://projects.drogon.net/
