Kodu is a new, purpose-built programming language designed as a first programming experience for kids or folks who want a very accessible intro to programming. Kodu is a visual language embedded in a 3D world, with language features specifically aimed at game design and interactivity programming. While deceptively simple, Kodu also introduces advanced concepts such as concurrency and arbitration. The user interface for Kodu was designed around the Xbox 360 game controller. Kodu is free on the PC and is used in educational programs around the world.”
