Learn to Code in 5 Minutes

Introduction: Learn to Code in 5 Minutes

Hi again and welcome! In this instructable I will show you how to make a basic program with scratch in 5 minutes
Please note that this can take longer than 5 minutes
No previous knowledge of code is nessesary, but certainly helps.

What you'll need: a scratch.mit.edu account ( if you don't have one don't worry, we will go over that )
A device running adobe flash player

Step 1: Register a Scratch.mit.edu Account

This is totally free and available at scratch.mit.edu
Scratch has a vast friendly community of makers, coders, diy enthusiasts, etc

Step 2: Create a New Project and Get Started

Go into the "my stuff" menu and create a new project
The coding interface will pop up.
You can play around with this in any way you want, but for the purpose of this tutorial, try and make this:

When flag clicked
| if on edge, bounce
| move 5 steps

When your program is done, hit the green flag in the top right corner.

Step 3: Congrats!

You just learned a little bit of basic code, have some fun with it, see what you can make.
