Well .... to answer your question I make you a question...was it difficul to you to learn C++?

Of course you can learn, and every body that try to. It is much easier than learnibg C++.

There's a reason why it's called BASIC, I can't quite remember the reason but yes it is easy to learn!
If you know C you might think BASIC does some things in a stupid way but it's really quick to use so we deal with its peculiarities.

BASIC stands for Beginner's All-purpose Symbolic Instruction Code

High-level programming language designed to be easy to use.

There are a lot more commands than a language like C++ has (I think it's around 700 commands or something), but it is really simple to make something cool

Yes! Definitely! I had zero knowledge of coding languages when I first picked up DarkBASIC. Yes, it does have some strange hiccups from time to time, but you come to understand them, and eventually become comfortable in it.

But, I yammer... Welcome to the DarkBASIC community, pickle.

If the universe isn't a program, then why do planets orbit in loops, death sparks life, and human interaction is buggy and glitched?

I started with Game Maker and then moved (broadly speaking) to DBC. I'm sure if you're coming from C++ you'll be just fine.
