A modern programming environment
Kojo has the following features to support the flow of programming:
- Syntax highlighting.
- Code completion.
- Fast interactivity - instant feedback for graphics and console based programming.
- Online help.
- Program data exploration via Worksheet mode or Explorer pane.
- Program tracing.
- Line-by-line program running.
- Searchable program history.
- And more…
A powerful language
Scala, the programming language used in Kojo, has great (arguably better than any other language in the world) support for the most important and widely used programming/computing ideas and paradigms:
- modular programming
- object-oriented programming
- functional programming
- concurrent programming
Physical product development opportunities
Kojo has great support for generative art, which can be used to create exciting designs that can be printed on t-shirts, carry bags, posters, back-packs, cups, caps, etc. This enables children to build things that they can use, showcase, and potentially sell. This in turn provides tremendous motivation and multi-dimensional learning and growth opportunities.
Here is a sample t-shirt design done in Kojo:
