Development Update

We'll be releasing updates on 5/30/2021 from 9PM to 11PM PST.

1. Google Classroom share button

When sharing a workshop project, you'll notice a new button: Share to Google Classroom. This button allows teachers and students to share a public project link directly to Google Classroom.

Is this useful to you? Please let us know how you're using it!

2. Cursor behavior in lessons

In a lesson, the editor is no longer allowing the cursor to move to a disabled line. This should improve the user experience and reduce the number of "You can't edit lines with green gutters" errors.

3. Parent account improvements

We've made improvements to the way parent accounts can manage and interact with child accounts.

If you know of someone who might benefit from using Blackbird, please share it with them. Your referrals are the strongest way to grow Blackbird and get more students learning to code. Thank you!

4. Other fixes and improvements

We continue to fix small bugs and make subtle improvements across the app.


Thank you to our teachers -- you make the magic happen!
