Everyone starts out thinking they are making it easier for kids. Eventually, they realize that kids are people, and if you make something easier for kids, you have made it easier for people. It took Blockly about 10 years to really get it through their head. Pickcode will figure it out in 9 more years, I guess. 😅

Though tbf pickcode doesn’t actually seem to mention being for kids anywhere on the home page so it may have been editorialisation in the posting
