Really great in teaching the fundamentals

Usually when downloading an application, I like to look at different viewpoints that other people had on the application. Once I downloaded the application, I honestly wanted to see all that this application had to offer. Although I already know how to program in different languages, I wanted to see how this application can help me jumpstart my programming language pool with JavaScript. Honestly, I am mind blown with this app. I ended up taking the long route and starting from the very beginning when opening the app just to see how Grasshopper would navigate me through the path. I recommend this app to anyone that is curious about JavaScript whether you’re just a beginner, or you want to refresh your memory on some concepts. Grasshopper will teach you what is necessary in an organized fashion.

Reading the few reviews that gave this app a bad review stating that they learned nothing completely missed the fact that this application teaches you the proper syntax for JavaScript. While this application does focus on more drag-and-drop mechanics, it shows you how to think logically.

Learning... at a price (your personal information)

I was very excited when I heard about grasshopper. It’s from Google, so I had high expectations for this app. I wanted to try it out and see if I could use it help teach my kid. Well, I’m never going to have that opportunity as the first thing the app asks is to sign in using a google account which will share data about you. I can see no reason whatsoever why Google should *require* you to sign in to use this app. Google team, if your goal is to be altruistic and provide a public service then just make the app available without requiring sign-in and user tracking. This is pretty shameful especially in light of the Facebook revelations. This is just tone deaf. Quit the tracking!

Torn. Great but...

I was thrilled to find this app. I was looking for an easy way to start coding. Clean, easy to use, and had links to more detailed support forum pages to discuss and dive into puzzles more of you need it. However, I started to get a little bored with it. It usually spends one puzzle per concept, and hardly has a larger puzzle to combine concepts or challenge the user to think harder than the surface introduction. I would love to see more involved puzzles, that have less step by step guidance to help me think independently about concepts.
