Let’s talk Coding for Kids with Snap!

Did you know that SAP makes a visual programming language for Computing Education?

Snap! Build Your Own Blocks is the programming language kids in Silicon Valley learn in high school and college students at UC Berkeley use to explore the Beauty and Joy of Computing.

During SAP TechEd’s Devtoberfest Jens Moenig and Jadga Huegle took us all on an exclusive backstage tour of their R&D lab during two live sessions.

These sessions are now available for replay in SAP Developers channel.

Designing a Programming Language for All Children

In that presentation Jens explained design principles, architecture and pedagogical mission of Snap!

When Jens demoed AR just using a few blocks…

Moving Heart

… a user KinestheticLearning wrote in the live chat:

​Wow, you have moved the heart, ours as well. Thank you for creating Snap!, Jens!

Programming Beauty and Joy

In that session Jens was joined by Jadga, and they explored classical algorithmic art through recording and remixing…

…using just squares ⬜


There were many enthusiastic responses after sessions.

Thanks Bernat Romagosa, Valery Bogdanov, Burak Yilmaz, Andrew Diaz Beera, Mohamed Yosufdeen J M H, Nils Lutz, Geetha Gopalakrishnan, Ullrich Platt and others for participating live ❤️

For everyone else, who missed any or both of these sessions, here are recordings:

Please let us know what you think!

We hope you enjoyed Devtoberfest and will join us next year too,
-Vitaliy (aka @Sygyzmundovych)

      Hi Witalij Rudnicki ,

      Thank your for your mention. I would like to come across a website like this when I was a kid.

      That was awesome and now I know how to activate the developers mode 😀
