Learn Basic Javascript For Free With This Google App

If you want to learn how to code, there are a ton of resources out there to help you learn how. Websites like Codecademy, Udacity, and Khan Academy can help you kick the tires a little bit and see if coding is for you. This week, a group from Google launched another option, a mobile app called Grasshopper that can help you learn Javascript during your morning commute.

The app was made through Area 120, Google's incubator for projects that employees want to build during their "20 per cent time," the time they can use to work on whatever they want, Engadget reports.

The app (available for Android and iOS) teaches you Javascript through a series of tiny games and puzzles, the idea is that you're learning but enjoying your time as well.

If you already know a decent amount of Javascript then this isn't going to really do it for you, but if you're looking to dip a toe in and see if you like it, then it can be a fun (and free!) place to start and will set you up with a good base for when you do decide to sign up for that official coding class.
