PowerBASIC Forums
Two problems all programmers face is getting current information and getting help from peers. Well, that's exactly what forums can do. Especially with PowerBASIC, which has a much smaller population of programmers than Microsoft products, forums are an excellent way to pool the resources of all PowerBASIC programmers.

Popular PowerBASIC Forums
Here are the two primary forums frequented by PowerBASIC programmers.

  • PowerBASIC Forums
    With over 25,000 messages these are easily the most active PowerBASIC forums on the web. There are plenty of current posts. Older posts are also kept online.

  • Jose Roca Forums
    With perhaps 2000+ posts, these are the second most active PowerBASIC forums on the web. Topics tend toward the very technical.

Other Forums
In addition, here are several other sites with PowerBASIC, BASIC, or other forums which PowerBASIC programmers can use as sources of information.

  • Buff's Forums
    PowerBASIC and QuickBasic forums, as well as forums specific to commercial software.

  • Tek-Tips Forums
    QBASIC, Visual Basic, BASIC, Assembly, DarkBasic, ...

  • Yahoo! Groups
    This entry is just to give notice that the forums exist. Membership is very light with no moderation - there's mostly spam in the posts.

  • Programmers Heaven
    Has a BASIC forum, open to discussion on any BASIC language. PowerBASIC content is very light, barely one a month. There's also a QBasic subforum with no moderation - there's mostly spam in the posts. The Visual Basic forum is 10X as large.
