Get people creating fun working projects quickly for instant gratification and progress.
People then have a context as to what the code is actually doing.

- Government wants Computing back on the agenda
- Teachers are too busy to explore all langauges in detail to create these games from scatch themselfs
- Learning real industry tools/skills is important
- It's just rewarding and creative
- Learners can just come to site of there own accord and create some cool stuff. People of all ages, who are curious about coding stuff
- Teachers (with minimal knowledge) can point class's at the resources
- Teachers can lead cool sessions (lesson plans coming soon, because i'm a teacher too!)
