Baltazar is a programming language designed to teach students the basics of software development and computer science. This visual language offers a drag-and-drop interface where users can create animations, games, and other interactive programs by snapping together graphical blocks that represent different programming constructs such as variables, loops, and conditions. Baltazar is often used in educational settings for children or beginners in computer programming because it simplifies the process of learning how to write code without getting bogged down in syntax details that might be more difficult for novices to understand. The platform helps users get hands-on with the concepts behind coding logic before they transition into textual languages like Python or JavaScript.
