Napier88

Napier88 is a general-purpose programming language and environment designed to teach computer science. The language has a syntax that mirrors JavaScript, but includes additional features for teaching concepts such as object-oriented programming (OOP), recursion, and data structures like lists, stacks, queues and trees. Napier88 can be used with an integrated development environment (IDE) that lets learners immediately see the results of their code thanks to its ability to execute directly. With built-in graphical components for creating interactive applications or games, students can visualize the impact of their code in real time.
