How I Use It
I have used this service to make a project for myself testing if it would be a useable and fun service to use in my classroom in the future. My roommate has used this tool when teaching young students how to code at his job so there is real-world application
My Take
I have used this service and thoroughly enjoyed it and the process of learning the syntax. I have coded before and I liked this tool as an introductory coding experience for students who are picking up computer science. Additionally, it would work with adults who are trying the grasp basic coding concepts as there are extensive tools that can be applied in this program and complex projects made.
