BLockly is a visual programming language, which involves dragging &
dropping blocks, and connecting them to perform functions. By it
being block-based, it opens up learning how to code, and programming to a
wider audience, so kid's and new programmers/coders don't have to be
concerned with the syntax, formatting, and symbols. Accessible BLockly was
designed for people who are visually impaired, as it's built for keyboard
and screen reader users.
