An interactive online platform for beginners
I love how it specifically says you need to do this thing and its not overwhelming as it's broken up into pieces! This was very fun as I love how interesting text-based coding is.

Three critical problems Blackbird solves
Traditional coding education platforms don't support learners who make mistakes, get stuck, or try complex programs.
1. When you make mistakes
Traditional platforms give confusing error messages.
Blackbird has hundreds of unique, easy-to-understand error messages designed for beginners.
2. When you get stuck
When traditional platforms don't accept your code, there can be no way forward.
Blackbird's Show me feature gives you a correct line of code where you need it, allowing you to continue at crucial moments in the learning process.
3. When things get complicated
Debugging is a critical skill in coding, but traditional platforms don't have debuggers.
Blackbird has a beginner-friendly debugger integrated with the lessons.
