Unlike many other educational languages that rely on scripting and Java-like syntax, the Kodu language is entirely event-driven and programming takes the form of "when" do' clauses. Despite this simplistic programing model, many computer science concepts can be expressed using Kodu. We identify and measure the frequency of these… CONTINUE READING
