Projects / Greenfoot


Greenfoot is an integrated development environment that makes it easy to write games and simulations in Java. It comes with a broad range of demo scenarios and documentation that gets newcomers started very quickly. Greenfoot may be used to learn or teach programming, or just to write a cool game and maybe put it up on a Web site. (it can export the game to a Web page). It was originally developed for school age learners, but is now used by all age groups.
