FAQ | Blockly | Google Developers
"Why are graphics better than text?
Novice programmers are fighting two battles at once: the fight to translate their ideas into logical statements, and the fight to keep the syntax legal. Blockly makes it completely impossible to make a syntax error. There are no unbalanced parentheses, no unescaped strings, no missing semicolons. Blockly allows novice programmers to concentrate on the logic.

Blockly has been under full-time development at Google since 2011."
