Hello Snipey, and welcome to the forums
GoBox will teach using a block based language called Bloxter. It does let you see the Python code that gets generated so it might be good to see how things are done. It’s very much a beginner level program.
PyBox is straight into Python using JupyterLab and Jupyter notebooks. You’ll learn how to leverage interactive Python, do a bit of data science, draw graphs of incoming sensor values, generally learn more advanced topics. Each project has more meat to them than the projects in GoBox. We estimate between 4 to 6 hours per PyBox project.
While concepts like loops, conditionals, variables, are explained in PyBox, it is very light on them. We recommend PyBox for students who have previous programming experience before, at least the basic concepts.
I hope this helps
