Hi,

an alternative to TouchDevelop could be Blockly
<https://developers.google.com/blockly/>, as it currently has translation
to Python,
example
https://blockly-demo.appspot.com/static/demos/code/index.html#982hb3

(it has various adaptations, for example - turtle graphics
https://trinket.io/blocks )
