There are a lot of tools that make the skill of programming desktop software accessible to many people, but developing Web applications is still intimidating in a lot of ways. Plenty of options exist, but newcomers need something that is easy and produces immediate results. Run BASIC is based on the BASIC programming language and will have you building your own Web applications in no time at all.

Run BASIC is developed by Shoptalk Systems, which also develops Liberty BASIC. That language helped me to cultivate more of an interest in technology and creating desktop applications, and Run BASIC is the equivalent for the Web application crowd.
