Start from Scratch

Few years ago, a friend of mine sent me Scratch. It is a great tool for kids and grownups. Here is what it is about:

MIT made a programming language:
https://scratch.mit.edu/
It was intended for students to learn to program. Initial targeted audience was 8-16 year-olds. But it turned out that it is quite good. Now, people of all ages are using it to create their interactive stories, games and animations. It is a proper programming language, called scratch – the name I really like, because of: start from scratch 😀

Why is it important:

ScratchJr

To really cover all generations, for youngers kids ScratchJr was created

Same Scratch story, youngers people 😀

Summary

Happy learning.
