Google’s Grasshopper app will teach you coding for free on your smartphones
A team of coders from Google’s workshop for experimental projects, Area 120, on Wednesday launched a new learn-to-code mobile app to help beginners learn to code.
“Coding is becoming such an essential skill, and we want to make it possible for everyone to learn even when life gets busy,” the app’s About Us page explains.
- The Fundamentals – How code works, calling functions, variables, strings, for loops, arrays, conditionals, operators, objects, and how all these things work together.
- Animations I – Drawing shapes using the popular D3 library, defining functions, callback functions, and animations.
- Animations II – Creating more complex functions using D3 and the topics from The Fundamentals course.
The app’s About Us page further adds, “We made Grasshopper to help folks like you get into coding in a fun and easy way. We put Grasshopper on a phone so you can turn your commute or waiting in line into a learning moment.
