Introducing SnapCode

February 24, 2014

SnapCode is a new, free tool for building Java applications by with simple drag and drop. It is a great way to quickly create games and animations and a great way to learn to program.

Here is a video that shows a simple starter application in SnapCode.

SnapCode Introduction Demo

We are hoping that teachers and schools will start to use SnapCode to help students learn to program. One of the aspects of SnapCode that we think is very important is that it creates real Java code and uses a real compiler. It also has aspects that go way beyond simple animations – there is a real code editor, a UI builder, a database tool, browser style viewer, a report builder and more.

We will be improving SnapCode significantly in the coming year. And we’d love to hear from potential teachers and students!
