ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Core Intro – 24 Sep 2016

Standard

Today we introduced a new development board: DycodeX ESPectro Core to ProCodeCG Kids😉 We were invited to Bandung Maker Day – DevBoard Showdown so we went to different venue and we had to load up our stuff to be set up at the new venue🙂

IMG_2963

We keep our inventory small and compact to make it portable🙂

IMG_2964

We went to the 3rd floor
IMG_2965

And it was a wrong place LOL

IMG_2966

DiLo Bandung had set us up a nice and cozy room on the 1st floor🙂
IMG_2967

We arrived 1 hour earlier so we had lots of time to set up

IMG_2968

Most of the kids arrived early too (because we usually start the class at 9 am)
IMG_2969

And yes, we loved the place!
IMG_2970

We have parents helped us setting up too🙂

IMG_2971
IMG_2972

Lucky that we have nice parents willing to help us all the time!🙂

IMG_3027

No guns in class, sir, please!😀😀😀
IMG_3028

Ria, DyCodeX IoT Developer helped us to debug some errors and making sure the board works🙂

DyCodeX One Day ESPectro Workshop – ToT for ProCodeCG

Standard

One of ProCodeCG Kids Coding Curriculum is to teach kids about IT and electronics, including Internet of Things🙂

We always update our education materials and curriculum to provide kids with the most updated technology. That’s why we’re always doing research and educate ourselves to be able to deliver the knowledge to them🙂

We are currently doing research on development boards, to see which one fits our curriculum.

These are (on breadboard) previous version of DyCodeX ESPectro and ProCodeCG LED Board), (on top left) Esspressif Board and (on top right) is Arduino Board.

IMG_2845

Yesterday ProCodeCG joined a One Day ESPectro by DyCodeX

14390633_620479504779657_8235596527632405534_n

It was four of us: Budi Rahardjo (ProCodeCG Mentor), Marisa Paryasto (ProCodeCG CEO and Founder), Bernard Krisnandi Soetarman (ProCodeCG Kids Parent) and Clarence Soetarman (ProCodeCG Kids)

IMG_2846

It’s us!🙂
IMG_2847

Getting ready. We brought ProCodeCG Arduino Kit because we’re going to add ESPectro board into it🙂

IMG_2850

The place, @DyPlex is a very nice place
IMG_2851

Provided with coffee, snacks and fast internet connection🙂

IMG_2852

Before we started the workshop, DyCodeX formally gave the ESPectro boards to ProCodeCG
IMG_2854 IMG_2856
IMG_2857

We have already ordered 10 ESPectro Core and 1 ESPectro Base🙂

IMG_2859

IMG_2861

DyCode and DyCodeX CEO, Andri Yadi opened the workshop
IMG_2860

(On the back) some crews of DyCodeX also joined the workshop🙂
IMG_2862

The instructor of the workshop, Ria (DyCodeX IoT Developer). She thought us how to get ESPectro Library from GitHub and copy them to our Arduino folders so we can compile and upload the code to our ESPectro Board

IMG_2864

Andri Yadi showed us the features and details of the board. He explained about the design and how it works.
IMG_2865

On the next session, Ali (DyCodeX IoT Developer) showed us how to make NeoPixel work and how to connect to MQTT

IMG_2866

ESPectro Core works fine! It’s amazingly loaded with lots of features, including WiFi.
IMG_2867

ESPectro Base offers much more. More GPIO’s, more sensors, more connections.

IMG_2869

Prof. Budi Rahardjo explains to the rest of the class about the detail of MQTT connection code.
IMG_2870

How our desk  looked like😀

IMG_2872

The codes
IMG_2873 IMG_2874
IMG_2875 IMG_2876

IMG_2878
IMG_2879

We all were fully loaded with new amazing things! Including this ProCodeCG Kids. He tried all what he had done with Arduino to ESPectro Core🙂
IMG_2877

IMG_2880
IMG_2881

So we can say that ESPectro Core has gone through QC Test by ProCodeCG Kids and it passed😉

IMG_2882

Us after the workshop🙂
IMG_2883 IMG_2884

And interview afterwards🙂
IMG_2885

Now we’re going to prepare for this event tomorrow!

ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() #81 – OwnGames – “How a game developer become online round tofu seller without selling tofu”

Standard

Yesterday we had CEO and Founder of OwnGames shared about their awesome journey!!! We had contacted the CEO two months before but he had really tight schedule (he actually is now) so we were very lucky to finally can have him on our codeMeetUp()! He flew from Surabaya and drove straight to Digilife Dago and share huge inspirations with ProCodeCG🙂

The audience and the setting up scene🙂

IMG_2662

Muhammad, ProCodeCG Kids, with the whole family was also there🙂 Thanks for coming🙂

IMG_2695

IMG_2664

One of ProCodeCG Kids, Clarence wanted to take picture with the famous CEO of Tahu Bulat😀

IMG_2663

Eldwin Viriya. This smart, hardworker, successful, young man was graduated from Informatics UNPAR. The most impressive thing about him is his endless smile, peaceful tone and huge humbleness rarely find in most people!
IMG_2669

Eldwin and his brother Jevfin started OwnGames on 2011. Today, people know Tahu Bulat Games more than they know about OwnGames🙂 Yes, because Tahu Bulat beat Clash of Clans position on Playstore😉
IMG_2667

In the beginning of the journey, OwnGames created games for Nokia

IMG_2670

The game won lots of competition. Eldwin who was applying to take a master degree had to cancel because he had to run the busy and successful OwnGames.
IMG_2671

And then Microsoft bought Nokia so OwnGames started to create games for Windows Phone too.

IMG_2672

And it won again.
IMG_2673

OwnGames created more games on Windows Phone, Android and iOS
IMG_2674

And won again🙂

IMG_2675

Winning lots of competition brought OwnGames all over the world to meet more people and partners

IMG_2677

And OwnGames kept creating and winning🙂

IMG_2678

But creating games needs research
IMG_2679

Because even partnering with Google and being featured on Google Play only boost the number of installation for a very short time, and then people stop using the game and uninstall the game

IMG_2680

So OwnGames did some research to find out that 74% of internet user via mobile using Android
IMG_2682

But the yellow line, that shows the growing number of user, belong to “unknown”. Not one of the most popular brand🙂

IMG_2683

It was revealed that there are some non-famous brand in the market that have been sold more than those popular brands🙂
IMG_2684

This kind of smartphone is very cheap. Much cheaper than Samsung and other popular brands.

IMG_2685

IMG_2686

The cheap smartphones has very limited storage and memory. It can only store limited number of apps.
IMG_2687

So OwnGames concluded that they had to create games that only require small space. Because to be able to draw people to download and try a game is that the size should be small so it will fit in most of smartphones.
IMG_2688

The details about memory usage on smartphone
IMG_2689

OwnGames created Own Super Squad, a high quality game (that requires lots of resource to create) that has big size and Own Pet Dragon, with less quality but has small size, and compare it. Own Super Squad got better rating but less download compared to Own Pet Dragon that has worse rating but has been download more than 100 thousand times due to its small size.
IMG_2693

Not only quota that is limited. Memory too.
IMG_2694

Revenue of Freemium Game depends on how long the game is on the device (not uninstalled) and being played.
IMG_2696

Tahu Bulat is successful because of the small size and lots of features to keep people coming back. The left one is the earlier versions with less features. After OwnGames gathered feedback from users, it gradually improved the game to be the picture on the right. More features, more gimmick, more things that keep people attached to the game.

IMG_2697

“Start small..
IMG_2698

..and gradually improve it to be BIG.” – OwnGames

IMG_2699

So inspiring! Thank you!!!
IMG_2700

This is Azriel, another ProCodeCG Kids that couldn’t stop playing Tahu Bulat😀

IMG_2702

Q & A Sessions

IMG_2703

And the picture of us🙂

IMG_2706

After session

IMG_2707

And this is the amazing thing about this young CEO. He helped to tidy up the place!
IMG_2708

Unbelievable!

IMG_2709

So glad to know OwnGames and got inspired with so many insights🙂 See you again very soon OwnGames🙂❤
