These Tutorials will deal mostly with the improvements from QB 4.5 to QB64, so as to help the user with the new statements introduced in QB64.

Tutorials go from beginner to professional, the tutorials in BEGINNER occasionally have pure QB 4.5 code (for those new to QB 4.5) while INTERMEDIATE and PROFESSIONAL focuses on how to use QB64 statements properly. Work in progress...

I cannot stress enough that the QB64 repository is not an official QB64 release! Even though our contributors are individually appointed, I'm not responsible for the contributions of these other authors which could potentially be malicious. Galleon
