DRAG & DROP LANGUAGE - THE FUTURE OF COMPUTER PROGRAMMING

Curious about programming and want to build your own app, but feel a bit intimidated? Google Blockly is a visual programming language that can help you get started quickly.The webapp lets you drag blocks together to build apps, which can then be exported to actual programming languages. 

Blockly was influenced by Google's other graphical coding tool, App Inventor, which was influenced by MIT's Scratch, a tool for teaching kids programming. Blockly looks strikingly similar to Scratch, in fact, except it can export the code blocks or show you the code beneath in JavaScript, Dart, Python, and XML. It's a learning tool that both kids and adults can use.

If one is writing a quick script using an unfamiliar API it can take a long time to learn that API. With Blockly one can plug the blocks together for a first draft, then switch to the generated code to keep going.
