5 Introductory Tools to Programming

Have you been toying with the idea of learning how to program but don’t know how to get started?  Check out these introductory tools to help you begin to think like a programmer.  Figure out how a computer works, instruct computers to performs tasks, create your first game, and more. 

ScratchOne of the easiest ways to get started with programming is to remix someone else’s already existing program. Remix a project using this free programming language called Scratch. You can build games, animations, music videos, and more.

Minecraft: Use blocks to build just about anything you can imagine in a virtual world. Discover engineering concepts, architecture, mathematics, as well as critical thinking skills and teamwork.

Develop a Game: Get started on building out the code, artwork, and music for a video game. These tools will help you build an interactive experience.

Remix a Website: Never seen the insides of a website? Use Hackasaurus to hack your favorite website to have it look and do whatever you want.

Run a Node.js Server: With Node.js, you can mimic the back and forth request/response your browser sends to servers when you visit a website. Set up your first development environment.

Instead of a another joke how about some educational tools…
