In keeping with its mission of bringing computing to the young, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has released a beta version of a web-based software code editor for kids.
“We are building a new online text-based Code Editor to help young people aged 7 and older learn to write code,” Raspberry Pi’s Phil Howell writes. “It’s free and designed for young people who attend Code Clubs and CoderDojos, students in schools, and learners at home.”
The editor is designed to work well on mobile and tablet devices, and low-cost computers like the Raspberry Pi 4 2GB. Anyone interested in testing it now can access the first two projects in the Foundation’s Intro to Python path. You can also access the editor directly at editor.raspberrypi.org.
