...and now I'm here.

Hi,

I started learning programming in the 80's with Commodore Vic20, then GW-Basic and TurboBasic.
Then I did some professional programming with some QuickBasic and Visual Basic, and used Basic on PSION PDA's too.
After I worked with Clipper and FoxPro and since 2000 I work professionally with Java, C/C++ and some web technology but still have used basic (RealBasic/Xojo) for some hobby and professional utilities.

I discovered PureBasic last week while I was thinking if renewing a Xojo license; I tried on Windows and Mac and felt in love with it :).
Today I purchased a license.

These days all programs are bloated, it is insane to have 200Mb Electron apps consuming 800Mb+ of RAM. Java in the desktop is a mess, JavaFX is nice but having a 60Mb executable for a simple app is insane too, the whole process to build a Java installer is cumbersome too.

PureBasic has a huge library, creates very small executables without dependencies, it has a simple and straightforward language (no OOP, Design patterns, DI complexities) ... it remembers me the old days when I cold develop a full application in a week in VB or FoxPro.

I already have a candidate project to start developing in PureBasic during Christmas vacations :)

Regards
Joaquim
