Google Launches Smartphone Game For Teaching Adults to Code

Once you open the app, you'll be asked if you're a novice or if you've already had some experience in coding.

Google shared about the significance of coding skills to be developed by adults and youngsters in the competitive world that could be possible by Grasshopper app in an easy way like a smartphone game.

We can't wait to meet you. And, we put Grasshopper on a phone so you can turn your commute or waiting in line into a learning moment.

When you're done with the content in Grasshopper, you can move on to recommended Coursera classes to learn more about JavaScript, HTML, CSS, algorithms, and web design for a fee, or simply muck around in Grasshopper's online playground and make your own JS animations. Daily notifications are for those who are using the app to learn coding on a daily basis.

The Grasshopper app itself looks simple and self-explanatory.

Over the past nine months, Google has been trying to change that through Grasshopper, a mobile game meant to teach adults the basic principles of coding.

In a ideal and predictable world, Eddie Howe should get his side to at least four points in these three games. We expect both sides to score, and we are going for a 2-1 win for the North London side.

From programmable LEGO robots to mobile apps like Hopscotch, there's no shortage of games and toys created to get children interested in computer science. Each portion is like a small puzzle and quiz, except that it's got a coding lesson as part of it.

By following the steps of taking on challenges and answering quizzes the app will teach you the basics of JavaScript.

Animations II - Creating more complex functions using D3 and the topics from The Fundamentals course.

Every section has an introduction followed by some instructions and an example.

The app is now available for both Android and iOS. The app is relying on 3D visuals to make coding more comprehensible, especially for beginners. The point is that there are already plenty of mobile games and other options for learning coding that are intended for children in the market, but hardly any for adults.

My one real hope is that as Grasshopper grows, the Google developers working on the app will add new programming languages for users to learn.
