Lightning Talk: Create Your Own Block Logo in 5 Minutes

View on Snap!Con

Presented By: Stefano Federici


By using the BloP extension, I will show how non-high-level-programing-expert users of Snap_!_ can build simple block languages that they can use to introduce their students to the core elements of a programming language such as sequence and looping.

Setting up a few new blocks with their syntax, creating auxiliary elements that can help design the new environment, hiding all the unimportant elements of the Snap_!_ GUI and locking the new programming environment so that it can be safely used by its final users, is just a matter of 5 minutes.
