About An overview of Kodu. (Click to play) Kodu lets kids create games on the PC and Xbox via a simple visual programming language. Kodu can be used to teach creativity, problem solving, storytelling, as well as programming. Anyone can use Kodu to make a game, young children as well as adults with no design or programming skills. Since Kodu's introduction in 2009, we have visited the White House, teamed up with great groups like NCWIT and DigiGirlz, inspired academic research and been the subject of a book (Kodu for Kids).
ambi - Ambi Calculator and Programming Language Try out latest version. Ambi Calculator and Programming in your browser. *New* Now a Full Screen Chrome App and Chrome Popup Extension Author The Ambi Calculator and Programming Language was created by David Pratten. MicroWorlds EX We think our products are great! But don't just take our word for it, here's what teachers have to say... "I was first introduced to Logo about 20 years ago at the University of Nebraska. About 10 years ago when the opportunity came up to teach a 6-week exploratory class for seventh graders, I knew right away that I wanted to use MicroWorlds! Now that MicroWorlds EX is out, the students are not only experiencing computer programming at their level of expertise, but I firmly believe that MicroWorlds builds a strong foundation towards a future computer science career."

Avian Avian is a lightweight virtual machine and class library designed to provide a useful subset of Java's features, suitable for building self-contained applications. Efficient The VM is implemented from scratch and designed to be both fast and small. Just-In-Time (JIT) compilation for fast method execution Generational, copying garbage collection ensures short pause times and good spatial locality Thread-local heaps provide O(1) memory allocation with no synchronization overhead Null pointer dereferences are handled via OS signals to avoid unecessary branches The class library is designed to be as loosely coupled as possible, allowing tools like ProGuard to aggressively isolate the minimum code needed for an application.
15+ great resources for introducing coding to the classroom By Kelly Maher September 4th, 2015 Must-try apps, games, and tutorials for learners of every age “Computer science is a liberal art, it’s something that everyone should be exposed to, everybody should have a mastery of to some extent.”—Steve Jobs As the world continues to become more and more digital, the number of computer science jobs in this country is rising three times faster than the number of computer science graduates. The problem-solving and logical reasoning skills involved computer programming, as well as the ability to think critically and algorithmically, provide a foundation for virtually every career.
Why Kids Should Make the Video Games They Love to Play When educator Lynn Koresh hears from kids that they want a career doing something with computers, she asks, “To do what with computers?” Adults often encourage kids to pursue science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills, and computing classes are usually a first stop. But Koresh knows it’s the real-world applications of computational thinking and coding language skills that bring such knowledge to life. She reasoned that most middle school students are already playing video games and might respond well to a unit on how to design, create, test and promote video games.
autokey - Desktop automation utility for Linux and X11 AutoKey is a desktop automation utility for Linux and X11. It allows you to manage collection of scripts and phrases, and assign abbreviations and hotkeys to these. This allows you to execute a script or insert text on demand in whatever program you are using. AutoKey features a subset of the capabilities of the popular Windows-based AutoHotkey, but is not intended as a full replacement. For a Linux-based implementation of AutoHotkey, see IronAHK.
