Mobile Programming Course (Android)

30 Sep

The mobile programming course designed for the pioneer batch is not a spoon feeding session where you as a student are waiting to be taught. In fact being a 3-day program, a very short time indeed, it is not just to introduce programming but it is to get you to learn by your own exploration and discussion and not just to be taught by someone else and also sharing what you know (which in turn you will be learning more.) All these are modern skills to be learnt in the age of social networking, collaboration and making oneself skillful and useful.

Based on feedback, we are looking at 12-14 (Wed-Fri) November for the pioneer batch.

What you will get to do is to first set up and familiarize yourself with the environment (laptop and android phone.) It is possible that before you come to class, you could have set it up first.

The basic principle for this course which is essence of good learning and especially so for programming is this:

Code a little (or build a little), test a little,  learn and repeat.

Note : App Inventor is a visual “building block” method of programming designed by Google engineers. It is now maintained by MIT . Do Google it.
