'Real-time' usually seems to mean to a lot of people 'you don't have to do a processing step after saving data to see results, but instead see a stream as the data is collected'. 'Real-time' doesn't require that the system have no lag (impossible), but at least latency should be known. Which, I will grant you, is likely not known in this case.

To perhaps be a little more clear: I am arguing that code.org is claiming that code was written, when actually a useless code was written for them while they moved blocks. They do admit the number of lines of code written doesn't mean much, but I go a step further: I wonder if they wrote any at all. You might just call this another layer of abstraction to make it easier to learn and play with, but the code generated for them might as well be something like

kfjdkf;dkfjsdkf;sdkfjsdkf;kfjdkf;dkfjsdkf;sdkfjsdkf;

If none of it actually means anything in the end.

That's fine, and I like the angle of learning to give commands, but no lines of code are actually written in the first few tutorials. You put blocks together and then can view the lines of code generated for you. These lines then have no context, and are useless on their own. I am actually simply complaining that they are claiming that all of this code is being 'written' when arguably none is being written, and further none of it is given any context.

Many still use 2, it seems to me. Either way, you're not going to waste much time learning any language at a beginner level. For the amount of material covered in a beginner course, moving to another language or version will just be a few changes (and something you'll need to get used to with programming anyway)

1 + 1 = 3, for large values of 1.
