Google has announced a new game to help adults learn to code.

Over the past nine months, Google has been working on a game called Grasshopper, a mobile app meant to teach adults the basic principles of coding.

So far five thousand people have already graduated from Grasshopper’s JavaScript Fundamentals course while the app has been in testing.

The game is launching for iOS and Android out of Area 120, Google’s internal workshop for experimental projects.

The game won’t turn you into a programming wiz overnight. But by introducing players to the basic fundamentals through JavaScript, it may help them decide whether coding is a viable career switch for you.
