Let's switch roles : this time YOU are the computer ! Read and interpret the programs to find the right trajectory and win the challenges. You will have to focus and use your intuitive abilities to understand some core concepts of programming.
Objective: This game's main focus is on code reading. After finishing Compute it, you will have a good practice on how a computer reads some code. It will be a useful skill when discovering code written by other people.
But it’s an essential skill while writing your own code too :
having in mind how the computer will understand it, you will make less bugs
having been in the reader’s position, you will care about writing clearer code, with meaningful naming and careful spacing
Target: Suited for beginners who have never coded
