2-years ago Google launched Grasshopper application for students to learn and create code. Google will give this opportunity to everyone, by launching the Grasshopper Gallery on the desktop to give students an opportunity to learn and create code.
Grasshopper is a coding education app to prepare people to build their career opportunities in technology. The transition from learning to the building is an important part of the process of pursuing a technical career.
In the beginner learning environment, students are guided through exercises that key coding concepts like functions, loops, and variables. Here, students can build their coding skills with confidence in their abilities as they progress from a course of study in a school or college.
With the Grasshopper Gallery on desktop, students can apply those skills to create visualizations, mini-games, web pages, and more in the Gallery. In this free platform, students can start to build using their own imagination and creativity.
With the help of Grasshopper Gallery, students use code to build their own creations and share their work with friends, family, and more. Additionally, students can use the Gallery to build their own coding portfolio to showcase their abilities to potential employers or continuing education programs.
“With the launch of the Grasshopper Gallery, students can use skills learned from the core Grasshopper curriculum to build their own creations using code. As technical skills continue to become more important for employment, we will continue working to help adult beginners learn to code to pursue their career dreams. If you’re ready to start learning to code.” Grasshopper is available on Android, iOS, and desktop.
