Grasshopper App Is Now On Desktop

Grasshopper App Is Now On Desktop

For those new to the world of coding, Google’s Grasshopper tool is an excellent way to learn the skills needed for a career in tech. Now, it’s expanding beyond phones to the desktop, bringing with it some new lessons. The app was launched back in April 2018. Since then, the Grasshopper IOS and Android app have been downloaded over two million times. While being able to learn to code on a phone is beneficial, there are those who would prefer to do their lessons on a larger screen and using a full-sized keyboard. Therefore, Google is making Grasshopper available on desktop and laptop computers.

By moving to a larger screen, the program can be split into three panels: instructions on the left, code editor in the middle, and a preview on the right. In addition to the expansion, two new classes have been added to Grasshopper: the “Using a Code Editor” and “Intro to Webpages” course. The latter of which focuses on building and designing a website from the ground up. Users are taught Javascript fundamentals alongside HTML and CCS-based coursework. After just four courses, beginner coders will understand how to build a simple webpage.
