Google Creates App That Teaches Adults How To Code

The app allows the beginners to learn the coding in javascript and is available on iOS and Android smartphones and the same can be easily downloaded for free from Google Play Store or Apple's App Store.

"Coding, sometimes called computer programming, is how we communicate with computers", the app's website explains.

Area 120, Google in-house incubator, has released a handful of apps that make smart responses, find ways to run ads in VR, and more.

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. Time, access, and money.

Grasshopper is the best way to start your coding adventure with fun, quick games on your phone that teach you to write real JavaScript. There is also a Code Playground section where they can test their own codes and create whatever they like. Citing a survey of current Grasshopper users, Laura Holmes, founder of Grasshopper and a senior product manager at Google, said that most people interested in learning how to code are hoping to do so to further their career. After signing in with your Google account, you will be walked through the basics of programming and given several quizzes. From there, the user must choose whether they're new to coding or have existing experience. After completing the courses in Grasshopper syllabus, Google wants the players/users to continue the study in computer coding field. Apps like Hopscotch and Lightbot may be positioned towards children, but anyone can use their puzzles to learn the basic principles of coding.

As of now, the app is focused only on JavaScript concepts but hopefully, we can see more languages in the future.
