Coding for kids
There are many coding platforms for kids. Some are using block based coding while others are going directly for text based coding. I’m a strong proponent of text based coding even for young kids - since this is the real coding.
The platform is versatile and allow development of a wide range of programs such as graphical programs or even games! As a matter of fact building games is very easy with codeguppy.com since the platform comes with built-in assets such as animated sprites, backgrounds, music and sound effects.
Behind the scenes
The runtime of codeguppy.com is powered by a few nice open source libraries very appreciated in education: p5.js, p5.play, p5.SceneManager and TurtleGFX.
Adults can have fun too
Due to the platform capabilities, adults can also use it for recreational coding. The codeguppy.com website even includes example programs that are appealing to adults and software professionals.
