Manoj Ramachandran

We are interested in any and all aspects of your experience with Scratch. Did you like it?

Not really.

What was challenging about it?

Trying to get it to do some tasks that I thought would have been automated. For example, checking whether sprites are touching is much harder than it should be.

What insights did it give you about programming?

The drag and drop environment was very innovative. Also looking at people's programs shows how the functions and limitations of the environment incentivizes different games. Linear games were quite popular, and most games rely on key presses, whereas sprites are relatively independent of each other.

What didn't you like about it?

Common functions should be easier. For example, text display and sprite interaction.
