It was a good year for Blockly, thanks to our great community.  We're especially grateful to our +Code.org colleagues, who brought Blockly to more people than we could have alone, and to over a hundred volunteer translators and +Siebrand Mazeland at translatewiki, a project of the +Wikimedia Foundation.

Code.org's 20-hour curriculum also uses Blockly.
 
Could not get better news from a teacher:

"This is a game changer for so many kids. I told the kids, 'Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life' and to remember the day they were introduced to the Hour of Code when they become programmers!

I had NO trouble getting kids signed up for the 20-hour computer programming challenge today. They are still high on the #HourOfCode stuff from last week!!"

If you enjoyed the Hour of Code, keep going. Code.org has a new, online course that builds on the Hour of Code:

Thanks, I'll look into modifying it eventually.

I love using this new version of +App Inventor. It uses +Blockly and the companion app allows you to create apps without installing anything on your computer. Congratulations to +Hal Abelson and the team.

Me too. It's great with blockly and some new features too, like local variables.

Thanks for the kind words.  You mention that you're a CS major.  Blockly's open source, if you'd like to jump in.  Perhaps you can rewrite the Puzzle app to feature information about your family or community.

Teach kids how to program in their native languages with Blockly.  It's been translated into Arabic, Farsi, Turkish, and dozens of other languages.  If your favorite language hasn't been translated yet, volunteer!

"The Angry Birds / Zombies mini-course (which is available to anyone at Code.org) is possibly the best educational product I have ever come across."
Great job Blockly!

+Neil Fraser and +Quynh Neutron made a rare public appearance at +The Tech Museum of Innovation for the #HourOfCode .  If you're locally, drop by tomorrow and say hello.
 
Today we had +Google programmer and +Blockly inventor +Neil Fraser, drop by for +Computer Science Education Week. He will return tomorrow from 1:00 -4:00 p.m. to run Blockly Mazes with visitors!

We want children to be able to learn to program in their native language.  Blockly has been fully translated into Vietnamese, Chinese (simplified and traditional), but more volunteers are needed to complete Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, and other languages.

Want to teach programming to kids in their native Spanish or Portuguese?  You can do so with Blockly.
