Advanced Coding Resources - Python & Java
Once you've learned to break down a specific process into a sequence of logical steps and have created a set of connected visual blocks (using Scratch for example) to produce an animation or game, the next step is learning to describe this exact same process explicitly in the context of a higher level language. This transition to higher level languages allows you to better use and take full advantage of the many inherent strengths contained within each of the different languages.
