What is Progummy?

Progummy is the industry's first visual programming application with a collaborative editing function that allows multiple people to edit simultaneously.

An unlikely service that teaches programming smoothly and without waste.

Progummy Inc. received the Osamu Ogasawara Award, one of the special awards given to ideas that caught the judges' attention.

The judges commented, "This is a service that didn't seem possible. I feel lonely when I am programming, so it is nice to have someone there in real-time. I would like to use this wonderful service." "I have felt difficulty in teaching children and adults in workshops, for example, when I operate my PC while memorizing other people's screens. I felt that Scratch would be a completely different service if only it had a collaborative editing function".

Comment from Ishibashi, Founder & CEO of Progummy

We are very honored to receive such a prestigious award. We will continue contributing to the education field with our technology and business ideas and expand our services globally. We would be grateful if you would continue to support us.
