Grasshopper: Coding for Beginners

Today Google’s experimental incubator, Area 120, launched Grasshopper to help beginners learn to code on the go.

Here’s why: “Coding is becoming such an essential skill, and we want to make it possible for everyone to learn even when life gets busy."

Lessons cover all the basics in JavaScript:

  • :hammer_and_wrench: Basics like variables, functions, and loops
  • :memo: Drawing shapes using the D3 library
  • :computer: Building more complex functions using D3

Completely free, and available for iOS and Android so you can learn while your Uber takes another loop around the block.

Grasshopper isn’t the first app to teach coding on your phone.
