The Hour of NODE uses a brand new language, TurtleLingo, to teach students the rudiments of event-driven programming and abstractions at the website. We invite you to download the code and help us to improve it. We use Reactive Coffee Script and Node.js to develop this fun, interactive game to teach students how to program. TurtleLingo can also be used to design, develop, debug, and deploy new games as well.

What is it?
