Google’s Grasshopper app teaches you how to code

Google’s Grasshopper app teaches you how to codeGoogle’s incubator for employees’ “20 percent time” side projects, Area 120.

Google’s incubator for employees’ “20 percent time” side projects, Area 120, typically produces fun things like an app to make YouTube more social and expanding Smart Replies. Now the workshop has released an app to help beginners learn to code in Javascript, which could be helpful for novices who want to build websites.

It’s already hit over 100,000 installs in the three days it’s been online, and most of the 1600 reviews are positive, so it seems like a great introduction.
Unfortunately, it’s only in the Play Store for now, so iOS users wouldn’t know — and might not for awhile without renaming the app, since Grasshopper in the Apple Store refers to a completely different item.
