Trying out Blockly

Today I discovered a new programming language that goes by the name of Blockly and that shouldn’t be any surprise considering how you program in it.

There are some blocks with commands on them and you can combine them in certain ways in order to build your code. Although it’s pretty tiring to write a lot of code this way, I think that it will be good for people with no exposure to programming. And because those people  would be able to turn their code from blockly to Javascript or Python, they will also be able to post their work on their webpage or elsewhere easily.

Newton’s method in Blockly. Can you guess the error here?

You can learn more about it at the relevant google – code page.
