Android app development is becoming popular since the government is paying close attention to technology. Meet the developer of BeBlocky app.
Ethiopia is one of the ancient countries, located in the eastern part of Africa, known as the horn of Africa. Ethiopia’s education system is growing and the government is paying close attention to technology, particularly on programming. Therefore, thousands of programmers graduate from various universities around Ethiopia each year.
Among them are extremely qualified youth who spend more time on a computer system to know more about its technology and be a component of it as a programmer.
One of those programmers who are extremely qualified is Nathan Damtew. Nathan developed android app for children to easily teach programming. His application “BeBlocky” can be installed from Play Store.
According to the press release of BeBlocky: BeBlocky is a friendly programmable robot. BeBlock uses toy-brick like programming blocks, so children can easily understand the coding process and grasp the variety of commands featured on the app. By dragging and dropping these blocks, they can creatively stack together programming components – events and operations –, thus programming BlockyBot. This way, they can command BlockyBot’s different actions, such as emotion, movement, reaction to different scenarios and many more.
It is clear that BeBlocky is specifically made for children to teach them how to code.
We believe teaching programming to children is one way to empower them. It gives them tools to express themselves, just like drawing or singing. It helps them keep up with this rapidly changing world. We uphold that children should be aware of the basis of computers in addition to the regular science and mathematics studies needed to understand the world around them. It’s the closest thing to having superpowers we can teach children.BeBlocky Website
So far there is NO similar app for Ethiopian children. So BeBlocky is the 1st to provide such a beautiful programming learning app for children. Even if a mature person is interested to learn to code, it is also used as a starting tool.
This young person needs to be encouraged to grow his “BeBlocky” app globally in every way. Ethiopia’s government must support a young generation like Nathan to accomplish their objective.
