Learning how to code can be quite complicated which is why we're always happy to hear about new methods to help us learn in a fun, entertaining and relaxed manner. That's the idea behind Grasshopper: Learn to Code for Free, the application developed by Google's Area 21.
These are the main features of this app for future coders:
- Visual puzzles and challenges to help to settle and develop coding skills and knowledge.
- Real-time feedback from a virtual teacher who will guide us through the process step-by-step.
- We'll receive awards and achievements as we acquire new skills.
And just in case you were wondering. Grace Hopper is one of the most important names in the history of computing. The American scientist was one of the first women in this field and Grasshopper has received its name in her honor with quite a witty play of words.
