Coding apps come in a range of formats designed for different ages and abilities. They often incorporate bright colors, cute characters, and elements of game design to appeal to kids.

  • Intermediate users are ready for kid-friendly programming languages, specially designed to train newbies.
  • Advanced coders can start working with real programming languages that have a more gradual learning curve than what the pros use - but still produce sophisticated results.
