Gone are those days when students have to go through thick books and plain interfaces like Notepad and DOS to learn code. Now, there are different kinds of apps and online courses that can help you learn to code. However, if you are looking for something to learn the code for the web without internet, Google’s Coding with Chrome app is just for you.
“Coding with Chrome is a Beta Google project that provides a programming platform that works offline,” the description says. “Students are able to program in Blockly, Coffeescript, HTML, JS with output to Logo Turtle and/or connected toys (e.g. Sphero, Lego Mindstorms).”
The app helps students to learn code via a visual interface, a far away from the tedious days where programmers had to learn from some bulky, difficult books and code via some plain and lifeless interfaces like DOS or Notepad. It lets you work through both GUI and traditional “text” interface and see instant visual results on your code. Note that the app is still in beta version so it might be a little bit kinky, otherwise, it works just fine. The best part is Coding with Chrome will work offline, so you can continue learning even if you don’t have an internet connection.
The app is currently available at Chrome Web Store for download and is completely free. If you are interested in trying it out you can download it or go through the video to get the idea about the app.
