Flashback 1982: Atari BASIC, My First Programming Language

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BASIC_Programming

BASIC Programming was released for the Atari 2600 console in 1979. One of only a few non-gaming cartridges, this program allowed consumers to create some simple programs using its own unique programming language, which was superficially similar to dialects of BASIC, but differed in many important respects. The extremely small RAM memory size of the Atari 2600, 128 bytes, severely restricted the possibilities of this cartridge.
