Scratch is a big deal
@lupyuen @craigmaloney Nice post. Scratch is indeed a big deal, so much so that in the grand tradition of Microsoft copying great things, MakeCode and MakeCode Arcade were created (I think!) to make microcontroller programming easy.
To be fair, though I've only dabbled in both languages (and not much in recent versions of Scratch), it was *much* easier to create useful physical devices and simple games than I'd have though possible.
