There is a lot of documentation and tutorials on the
Learn website with many new ones being added all the
time. One of Parallax’s best features is its forum. Don’t
forget to go there with questions and when you’re looking
for information. It is one of the best run forums on the
This article is just the tip of an iceberg. Blocklyprop is a
new and growing programming environment, and the more
I use it and learn about it the more enthusiastic I am about
it. Other graphic languages I have used did not seem to
have the capabilities and extensiveness of Blocklyprop.
It is a new and growing phenomenon that I believe will
have a great future. As mentioned, it makes using the
Propeller chip a lot simpler, and I can easily see myself using
it more often in my own projects. I really believe the future
of programming will be graphical environments so that
everybody can be a programmer.
Years ago, we did not imagine having computers at
home. Now we are can envision people programming their
own applications as they need them.
Go to parallax.com and check out both Blocklyprop
and the Blocklyprop Starter Kit. This a great way to start
programming and is ideally made for educators both in
public schools and home schools.
