QB64 is a modern extended BASIC programming language that retains QBasic/QuickBASIC 4.5 compatibility and compiles native binaries for Windows, Linux, and macOS.



There are many ways to connect and interact with other QB64 community members.


Discord is a VoIP and instant messaging platform. Users have the ability to communicate with voice calls, video calls, text messaging, media and files in private chats or as part of communities called “servers”. A server is a collection of persistent chat rooms and voice chat channels which can be accessed via invite links.

The official Discord server follows the published Code of Conduct.

The following Discord servers are spun up without thought to how the community (which is mostly anonymous) will be managed; meaning no defined Code of Conduct or, if some rules do exist, they are very relaxed in being enforced. Due to this, if you don’t “fit in” (click) with the existing manager(s) of the server; you could easily be mistreated and/or banned. To say this another way, the following have NO clearly defined Code of Conduct - so experience varies widely and subject to individual tastes.

The following Discord server isn’t specific to QB64, but does have a channel dedicated to QB64 (it also adheres to a similar Code of Conduct):


If you are on Facebook, you can connect with people who share your interests. Meet new people, share knowledge or get support.

Regarding Code of Conduct on Facebook groups, there are fundamental / basic enforceable guidelines in place for all of Facebook that will carry through to Facebook groups - above and beyond these fundamental guidelines, the rest is up to each individual group. When participating in these groups be sure to review any pinned messages and/or description for specifics.




Going with a more “old-school” approach to on-line communities, forums provide a great way to get to know people, share knowledge and find help.

Unfortunately there isn’t currently any official forums for QB64; but with that said there are several forums available that may be of interest.

Although following sites host forums that cater to many dialects of BASIC, each of them have an area dedicated specifically for QB64.

The following forums aren’t specific to QB64, but may be of interest…

At one time there was a very active forum dedicated to QB64, but it was shutdown by it’s owner (re: “events of early 2022”); thankfully a community member has managed to restore an backup copy and made it available in read-only/archival format.
