gvrng - An interactive, introductory programming language.
gvrng [world file | program file]
Guido van Robot is a project developed by advanced high school students
for use by their peers as a learning tool and precursor to the further
study of programming with Python. It is a minimalistic programming
language providing just enough syntax to help students learn the
concepts of sequencing, conditional branching, looping and procedural
abstraction. It’s biggest strength is that it permits this learning in
an environment that combines the thrill of problem-solving with instant
visual feedback. In short, it is an interactive, introductory
programming language that is excellent for learning the basic concepts
of programming, applicable in any high-level language. Best of all,
it’s a whole lot of fun, too!
At this point, you are probably asking yourself, "What is GvRng,
specifically?" The gist of it is that it is a robot represented by a
triangle on the screen that moves around in a world made up of streets
and avenues, walls and "beepers", which Guido can collect or set. His
actions are completely guided by a program written by the user.
