Top apps for learning to code.

When I am working with teachers and staff members of schools that have embraced technology, eventually I am asked which apps are best for teaching students how to code.  There isn't a quick and easy answer to this.  There are lots of resources for different age groups, and some of the best resources actually are not apps at all.  Here are a few applications and websites that I think can be utilized in the classroom to help students learn the fundamentals of computer coding.
