Buckle up, Hopscotchers - there’s huge news to share.
With this update, every single one of our coding kits just became FREE.
Yep, you read that right.
Hopscotch’s mission is to expose every kid to the powerful ideas of computing through a programming tool that lets them make real software. And the best way for you to learn the core coding concepts you need to make amazing software is with Hopscotch’s coding kits.
These kits teach you everything from the basics to how to make your own versions of popular app store games like Pokemon Go and Rolling Sky. Until now, these kits have been subscriber-only.
That changes today.
Start with beginner kits like Make Plants Grow With Code. Then, learn how to make important game components with kits like Moving Backgrounds and Control Pad. Explore your artistic side with Pixel Art, or simulate the earth’s natural forces with Gravity. The sky is the limit!
You’ll also see an all-new coding course called ‘Learn From Kids’. This includes the very first kit made by a Hopscotch community member!
This version fixes a bug where the ‘message matches’ block was using the value of a text field if there was a ‘self’ string variable in your project, instead of what you’d entered in the block’s field. This is fixed now - phew!
Finally, if you’re Hopscotching with less-than-awesome internet connectivity, you should be able to start up the app faster.
Keep calm and Hopscotch on!
