Creating things with code has never been easier thanks to Kano. You can create music, art, and even your own video game if you so choose to. This can then be uploaded to Kano World, a free, online community that allows you to share your creations with everyone. But, what if you want to only share your creation with friends, rather than everyone else? In this guide, we'll show you just how to do that.

Kano's the right step towards coding
While you don't necessarily need a Kano Computer to code, creating your own, functioning computer can be very rewarding and is recommended if you want the full Kano experience. With the Kano Computer you start from scratch, making your own computer and learning to code with help from a booklet.
The Kano Computer is pivotal in helping beginners how to code, and while it isn't strictly necessary to access Kano World (as mentioned above), it is still an important piece of equipment that can help newcomers with coding. It also is ideal for children who want to create their own computer without having to break the bank.
The additional add-ons here are mandatory in order to access 'Your Creations' and thus, share it with your friends.
Kano World is a free, online community that is run by Kano staff. Here you'll be able to access your creations, compete in challenges, and then share them with the rest of the community.
