Google’s Grasshopper app will teach you how to code for free on your smartphones

A team of coders from the Google workshop for experimental projects, Zone 120, launched a new coding learning mobile app on Wednesday to help beginners learn to code.

Called as’Grasshopper, the objective of the application is to get coders to master the basics and basic concepts, so that they can take the next steps in their coding training, reports TechCrunch.

“Coding is becoming such an essential skill, and we want to allow everyone to learn even when life is busy,” explains the About page of the app.

Grasshopper covers the basics of JavaScript and some of the building blocks of programming. Currently Grasshopper offers three courses, which cover the following:

  • The Basics – How code works, function calls, variables, strings, for loops, arrays, conditions, operators, objects and how all of these things work together.
  • Animations I – Draw shapes using popular D3 library, define functions, callbacks and animations.
  • Animations II – Creation of more complex functions using D3 and the subjects of The Fundamentals course.

The app’s About Us page adds, “We created Grasshopper to help people like you get started with coding in a fun and easy way. We put Grasshopper on a phone so you can turn your commute or queue into a learning moment. And we put Grasshopper on a phone so you can turn your commute or queue into a learning moment.
