Google's intention is to develop adults with strong fundamental knowledge of basic codings through which it expects them to build upon citing the need of skilled people in mobile app developing, cloud computing and data engineering in recent times.

Welcome to Grasshopper, the coding app for beginners.

Area 120, Google in-house incubator, has released a handful of apps that make smart responses, find ways to run ads in VR, and more.

Grasshopper is available for download on both iOS and Android so in case you are interested in learning how to code, begin your coding journey today! We can't wait to meet you.

My one real hope is that as Grasshopper grows, the Google developers working on the app will add new programming languages for users to learn. Like many games created to teach coding, the puzzles themselves involve inputting lines of code to reach a goal. A friendly grasshopper named Grace - named after computer industry pioneer Grace Hopper - encourages players along the way.

Now in order to make the adults learn the techniques and skills of coding, Google has come up with an interesting way.

In a similar way to other learning apps, Grasshopper rewards you for your achievements Giving you medals and prizes for using the app for several days in a row as well as for passing new levels.

"This is the most user-friendly interactive app.to explore coding concepts through JavaScript.[it] quickly demonstrate [s] how code can bring things to life".

But Holmes says Grasshopper isn't trying to replace services like Codecademy. Part of the inspiration behind Grasshopper comes from Holmes' own experience studying computer science at Stanford University.
