MIT officially released the next generation of Scratch 2.0. In this meetup, we will have an introduction to Scratch 2.0. We will also review of what is new with the new version 2.0.
Kids will learn how to create games and share their games online.
What's New in Scratch 2.0?
Welcome to a new generation of Scratch! With Scratch 2.0, you can create new types of projects, work together in new ways, and learn new things in the process.
Scratch 2.0 allows you to create, edit, and view projects directly in your web browser. (You no longer have to download or upload projects or install any software.)
Here are some of the new features in Scratch 2.0.
I am happy to announce that this workshop will be run by Michael Badger, the author of the popular book "Scratch 1.4 Beginner's Guide".
The Scratch 2.0 workshop will introduce the new 2.0 features such as backpack, cloud variables, and video support. In addition to a few warm-up Scratch programming challenges, we’ll remix and jazz up the classic game of pong to have a little fun and discover Scratch.
Michael Badger is a farmer and author. He is the author of Scratch 1.4 Beginner’s Guide from Packt Publishing and is currently updating the book to Scratch 2.0. In addition to managing an agrarian business, Mike stays “connected” by providing freelance software testing, including the development of automated web application tests.
