Microbit.org - the official website for the BBC micro:bit, a pocket-sized computer.
The Micro:bit Educational Foundation has produced 'super-easy' guides to help you start learning to code at home.
Don't worry if you don't have a micro:bit at home! You can still do the projects using their online MakeCode simulator.
Or you can reserve and borrow a micro:bit Starter Coding Kit from your local library - it's free!
You can find out lots about learning computer code right here on this page.
If you are a complete beginner, you might want to start with one of the many Scratch tutorials and learn the basics by coding with blocks.
Many projects can be run on a BBC micro:bit - see our micro:bits page for more about that.
Scratch is a very visual form of coding and is therefore ideal for complete beginners of all ages.
Simply arrange coloured blocks together on the screen so that they snap together and form a set of instructions.
You could design your own character or even make up an animation against a custom backdrop.
You can even connect up your BBC micro:bit and program it with Scratch. Look out for the Scratch page about micro:bits explaining how to do this.
Python is different to Scratch in that it's written in plain text, just like in the example below.
- Create a Pypet - learn some Python basics whilst having fun
- Let's Learn Python - an online course that starts with basic skills (suitable for age 10 and up).
See Python for beginners for more resources.

If you've mastered coding with blocks and want to move on, edublocks helps you learn to start coding with text.
Discover a whole host of projects to run on your Raspberry Pi. You can also find projects for other devices like Crumble, Sense HAT and BBC micro:bit.
Look out for the micro:bit section of the Scratch website.
