The coding app for beginners by Google
Really offensive promo for Ukrainians
UPD: issue was quickly resolved: it was flag of Haiti not Russia (they look pretty similar on white background in small resolution).
Epic fail with Russian flag for Ukraine!
And looks like it is not just screenshot, it is in app too.

Great design, learning curve and experience.Cons:
"Log in every day" style ruins the sense of achievement for anyone that has a busy day and can't log in.
Just another great project from the Google team, and a really good one: the interest on programming is always something hard to tackle but this app made me (as a dev) want to review again JS.Federico Gaglio has used this product for one week.

Really offensive promo
Guys, in a screenshot from Product Hunt email you have Ukraine under the Russian flag: https://imgur.com/km0ihcs That's super offensive. I mean come one, it's 2018, put some efforts into ensuring you won't offend countries you're using in your promo!

Easy to understand the fundamentals. The lessons are presented in a cleary and organised.Cons:
I completed three lessons today and I enjoy the learning proces. If you get stuck you can ask for help so someone from the Grasshopper team or community can help you get back on track. I think this is a very important aspect of learning how to code because many people quit because they get stuck at some point. At the beginning of the course you can set up a schedule fitting your personal situation. You can choose to take the lessons daily or every other day for example.Angie has used this product for one day.

Would like to see more advanced topics

Enjoyable to use but was disappointed that it wasn't optimised for iPad.

Difficulty editing the model when it is very advanced
