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.

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:

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.
