Learning apps have been around for a while, but none this interactive. Google’s experimental products workshop Area 120 brings us Grasshopper, an app that’s bent on teaching everyone to javascript.

What makes it really interesting is the gamification of the learning experience. You start out with simple exercises that progressively teach you to code real life javascript. Thumbs up from us, its free and who doesn’t like upgrading their web skills.
