Blockly is good for learning the basic concepts of programming, but it's not meant for creating real programs. It's much faster for programmers to write and edit text than to drag around blocks to do everything. Fortunately, Blockly lets you view how your blocks will look in actual JavaScript code, so you can see how to to switch over to real code. Create some blocks in the Blockly Code Editor and click on JavaScript to see your blocks converted to code.

Once you know the basic concepts of programming, it's easy to pick up the syntax of a specific language: Go on to Learn Ruby for a quick tour of the Ruby programming language. (You can also go through the beginner Java tutorial, or quick example-based tutorials on Python or JavaScript.)

If you still want to code more with Blocks, check out Blockly's list of blockly-like programs.
