    Not really my thing, but making your avatar like that is definitely pretty cool.

  3. Nonki’s Avatar was made using a program that Nonki developed on Small Basic! That’s pretty cool!

  4. You’re welcome, Saeid and Teodora. I think Small Basic is truly impressive. It was designed all the way through to be incredibly simple and easy to use, but to also be great for teaching and gradually developing new learners (including kids), and also
    to be fun and interesting in the process!

  5. Andy, yeah, I think it’s pretty clever. You can even see his UI toolbar he built above his picture!

  6. Saeid Hasani says:

    Only 14 keywords! Wow!
    Nonki’s avatar shows the power of the Paint like program that he developed on Small Basic! It is a wonderful programming language!
    Nonki’s lecture was great!
    Thanks Ed!
