Functions Now Accept Parameters!

I’ve been waiting for this one for a while in MakeCode Arcade, and I’m so excited that it’s available in version 0.8 (i.e. the version that is currently available):

You can create functions in Blocks that accept parameters!

One of the challenging things for me with programming in Blocks mode has been the lack of parameters when creating functions. I’ve had to do some creative work with global variables, etc., to make some things work … and, honestly, I’ve reverted to copy-and-paste for some things. This will make life so much simpler and allow us to teach structured programming more appropriately!

I already love this platform, and it keeps evolving into an even better product. I can’t wait to see what’s in store!
