Following on from my post on Doctor Who: Friendly Dalek teaches you to code, Microsoft have Microsoft Imagine which is another initiative to take the younger and older generations through coding using simple tools and encourages them to develop games and applications (no Cybermen to shoot here though).

Games Development using:

  • Kodu Game Lab
  • TouchDevelop
  • Project Spark
  • SmallBasic
  • Free Tools
  • Online Learning

Apps Development using:

  • TouchDevelop
  • Windows App Studio
  • SmallBasic
  • WebMatrix
  • Free Tools
  • Online Learning

“We want to empower students of all ages and skill levels with the right tools, projects, and opportunities so that they can learn to create, code, and develop. Whether it’s a ten-year-old making her first game or a university senior building projects for their first job application, Microsoft can provide what they need, for free, today.” – Steve Guggenheimer, Microsoft

The race is on to capture the developing and programming community with new, easy and innovative ways to create games and apps.
