Many people spend more than three hours a day on their phone. Skip mindless social media scrolling and opt to use screen time for a quick coding lesson with Grasshopper, a phone app (also available on desktops) designed to teach users basic coding skills in a fun, interactive manner. The Grasshopper curriculum garners practical knowledge on writing JavaScript, a programming language used by the majority of professional developers. After completing the course, users should have enough basic skills to continue on their own programming projects, whether that is an individual creative endeavour or a computing career path. In addition to the lessons, users may benefit from the Glossary, which serves as a primer on programming jargon. The app can be accessed on Google Play or the Apple Store, as well as at the link above. Grasshopper is a part of Code with Google, an educational program working to close opportunity gaps within the computer science field.
