BASIC, which stands for Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code, is a family of high-level programming languages prevalent in the 1980s and focuses on usability. This language, as well as the tag, should not be confused with Visual Basic.

Dartmouth College's John G. Kemeny, Thomas E. Kurtz, and Mary Kenneth Keller created the initial version of BASIC on May 1st, 1964.

Since then, it has encouraged students and hobbyists from fields other than science and mathematics to write their programs, and many 1980s microcomputers came pre-loaded with BASIC. Later, numerous new programming languages highly influenced by BASIC were created, with some remaining in use today, including Visual Basic and VB.NET.
