Wow, lots of new things and amazing progress today! 🙂 We have several topics and research running 🙂

IMG_8543

Ain has made huge progress on GameMaker like always

IMG_8501

This is his latest game 🙂

IMG_8493

Using a very complex technique

IMG_8494

and numerous sprites and objects to make it looks so real 🙂

IMG_8495

Ain designed every sprite very carefully and in detail

IMG_8496

IMG_8497

IMG_8504

IMG_8511

IMG_8518

For the next lesson, Ain started learning creating apps 🙂

IMG_8534

IMG_8553

Ain’s first app on Android  🙂

IMG_8555

IMG_8556

Ain will be good at this one too 🙂

IMG_8558

IMG_8559

IMG_8560

Emma had finished her task to create a Tic-Tac-Toe algorithm in C to choose the best move

IMG_8512

IMG_8536

It works

IMG_8498

The code:

IMG_8499 IMG_8500

The new task given to Emma 😉

IMG_8513

Emma is digesting the task and we’re sure she’ll find out how to solve it 😉

IMG_8515

Yaay, we had a newcomer: Adin

IMG_8503

Adin finished the first time very quickly

IMG_8510

and got the certicate 🙂

IMG_8525

Moved on to CodeCombat and finished it

IMG_8530

IMG_8540

And then started LightBots 🙂

IMG_8557

Capt. Faris is now start working on Instagram crawling 🙂

IMG_8508

He’s not only making it work on his laptop

IMG_8505

IMG_8506

But make it work on a Mac too 😉

IMG_8514

IMG_8520

Neila wanted to learn some Sketch Up today 🙂

IMG_8521

Jundy was there to help, yaaay 🙂 Jundy is very fluent with Sketch Up so he’s the right person to teach Neila 😉

IMG_8524

Jundy helped Neila to install

IMG_8527

IMG_8528

And taught her basic things to start with

IMG_8531

Then Neila started to learn GameMaker. Ain taught her some tricks 🙂

IMG_8545

Neila made her first game 🙂

IMG_8546

and then back to Minecraft 😀

IMG_8552

J also helped Azriel to set up Minecraft Server 🙂

IMG_8550

Azriel (Ajil) wasn’t captured in the pic but this is him starting to code with JavaScript on Minecraft 😉

IMG_8562

Cinta continued her creating apps project 🙂

IMG_8533

IMG_8554

With more and more complex blocks 🙂

IMG_8561

Vian was in the mood of doing some GameMaker today 🙂

IMG_8529

IMG_8537

And then discussed things with Ain and Jundy

IMG_8541

IMG_8544

IMG_8564

Clarence had a coding project to finish. The task is to read a file and sort the content based on certain field

IMG_8532

IMG_8548

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 23 Sep 2017

Standard

Today we picked up where we left last week: making a micro servo works 🙂

IMG_8522

There were on only two kids working on Arduino/ESPectro Programming 🙂 This is Ozan

IMG_8502

He had successfully made micro servo works, and ready to add an ultrasonic sensor to activate the micro servo 🙂

IMG_8516

Nafis was working on the same thing

IMG_8519

IMG_8517

IMG_8509

IMG_8539

He added an ultrasonic to activate the micro servo and worked 😉

IMG_8538

Next week we will explore more things, and help the other kids to catch up 🙂

 

ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() #111 – Philosophy of BlockChain

Standard

ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() #111 🙂

IMG_8194IMG_8195

Philosophy of Blockchain by Prof. Budi Rahardjo 🙂

IMG_8196IMG_8197IMG_8198

Blockchain is not equal with Bitcoin

IMG_8199

Example of transaction

IMG_8200

how miner work

IMG_8201

initiating amount of bitcoin for A and A send some to B

IMG_8202

A chain will be created for each transaction

IMG_8203

The transaction will be hashed with certain criteria

IMG_8204

Example of simple hash

IMG_8206

A demo of transaction recording and creating chain in PERL

IMG_8207

creating hash that meets criteria for each transaction

IMG_8208IMG_8209

IMG_8210IMG_8211

the code: generating chain, calculate hash, etc. Showing how mining is done

IMG_8213

How miner work

IMG_8214

Summary

IMG_8215

The audience

IMG_8212

We had long discussions 🙂

IMG_8216

Thanks for coming 🙂

IMG_8219

See you on the next ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Open Topics – 16 Sep 2017

Standard

 

ProCodeCG Open Topics Class today 🙂

IMG_8058

IMG_8042

Emma is still working on AI for TicTacToe

IMG_8017

She is developing strategy to choose the best move

IMG_8050

There are still some bugs and she is going to fix the data structure and algorithm 🙂

IMG_8059

Clarence started to learn java and data structure 🙂

IMG_8021

He created a java program for monitoring graphics performance

IMG_8029

And his project is to parse a file and sort the content

IMG_8030. 

Based on certain number and name

IMG_8035 IMG_8036 2

The file, with comma as delimiters

IMG_8037

The parsing is done, now before sorting we need to convert the data from integer to string or vice versa

IMG_8039

Capt. Faris who is very proficient in Java comes to help

IMG_8043

IMG_8044

IMG_8045

and next is to sort 🙂

IMG_8074

Capt. Faris always has ways to solve things 🙂

IMG_8075

IMG_8076

While Cinta is back to creating apps 🙂

IMG_8038

She is creating a To Do List Application

IMG_8047

Altair starts to learn Python with CodeCombat 🙂

IMG_8041

Al seems to like learning to code this way 🙂

IMG_8048

IMG_8057

CodeCombat teaches kids logics and basic programming with a tool looking like a game 🙂

IMG_8061

There are missions to accomplish and kids have to write codes on the right window 🙂

IMG_8067

Altair helps Adit to solve the problems to finish the missions

IMG_8053

Adit is very good himself but sometimes he needs a little clue to keep on going

IMG_8056

A fun way to learn coding (Python) 😉

IMG_8060

Conquering challenge after challenge

IMG_8068

Tyo is still working on his temperature measurement application

IMG_8054

IMG_8051

It is working nicely now, converting both ways from Celcius to Fahrenheit

IMG_8063

We probably will improve the GUI to be make it possible to convert to and from more temperature units

IMG_8064

Capt. Faris helps Tyo to improve the code

IMG_8062

Faris added textfield listener so the code will automatically show the result on the other textbox when the user enter a number on one textbox

IMG_8070

 

Sabrina is back to learn web programming 🙂

IMG_8049

She has finished one stage

IMG_8065

and with the help of Capt. Faris has fixed some errors

IMG_8072

In a few weeks Sabrina will be ready to create his own web design with HTML, CSS and Javascript 😉

IMG_8073

Azriel learns different topic today

IMG_8052

He learns JavaScript with Crunchzilla Monster.

IMG_8066

Azriel learns about variables, looping and conditions. Next week Azriel will be learning JavaScript for Minecraft Modding 🙂

IMG_8069

While Capt. Faris is working on this research 😀

IMG_8046

IMG_8055

We’re going to develop many things using the result of Faris’ research 🙂 We’ll be reporting soon 😉

 

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming – 16 Sep 2017

Standard

The class is ready 🙂

IMG_8013

Today we are ready to explore new component: micro servo 🙂 Nafis is ready 🙂 *notice the screwdriver and the breadboard on his forehead LOL

IMG_8019

Nafis is so excited to see how a micro servo work 🙂

IMG_8024

IMG_8025

Nafis hasn’t finished typing the code so we’re going to try it next week 😉

IMG_8034

While Rezky still needs some time to test his new LCD I2C (we replaced the previous one with a new one)

IMG_8014

the new one didn’t work so we give him the working one and going to claim this one with another replacement. So Rezky will start exploration next week 🙂

IMG_8023

Reza is back 🙂

IMG_8015

He has to catch up with several previous projects before he can start his new project 🙂

IMG_8020

Project for Reza today is Ultrasonic Counter 🙂

IMG_8040

He struggles with libraries and the schematic. Still have to work on it next week 🙂

IMG_8071

Cinta learns robotic at school, and apparently what she has learn in ProCodeCG classes turn out to be very useful 🙂

IMG_8016

The code Cinta developed to turn on a set of LEDs to light up in a certain pattern according to what we enter from serial monitor

IMG_8026

IMG_8027

Cinta still has the schematic on the breadboard

IMG_8028

These for LED’s will blink in a pattern defined from serial monitor

IMG_8031

IMG_8033

Awesome work, Cinta 🙂

IMG_8032

Next week we will do more projects and fix bugs and errors 🙂

IMG_8022

Glad to know that our class helps kids with their school 🙂

IMG_8018

We’ll be reporting again next 🙂

ProCodeCG Sensor Data Acquisition Training – 11 Sept 2017

Standard

Today we trained lecturers for Politeknik Negeri Pontianak on how to do data acquisition from current sensors 🙂

Class preparation

IMG_7660 IMG_7661

We split the team into two: hardware and software. The hardware team started to assemble the components

IMG_7662

while the software team installing the application and libraries

IMG_7663

IMG_7664 IMG_7665

IMG_7666

ESPectro basic testing: blink

IMG_7667

and neopixel animation

IMG_7668

Then we’re ready to connect ESPectro to the circuit and sensor

IMG_7670 IMG_7671

IMG_7672

We compared the circuit with the one that has been tested and verified

IMG_7673

IMG_7674

Still didn’t work

IMG_7675

It took lots of retrying, switching components and we tried every solution possible and think of every source of errors

IMG_7676

still didn’t work

IMG_7677

We just kept trying

IMG_7678 IMG_7679

and after we changed the resistors with metal film ones, it worked! 😀

IMG_7680

Current reading when the switch is on

IMG_7681

when off

IMG_7683

when on and off again

IMG_7682

The effort was worth it 🙂 We finally finished the training and ready to collect data for further research and analysis 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Open Topics – 9 Sept 2017

Standard

Hello!

IMG_7490

IMG_7500

This Saturday we had two newcomers 🙂 This one is Al 🙂

IMG_7461 2

Al learned intro to programming with Minecraft Hour of Code 🙂

IMG_7466

After he finished task one, Al continued to learn about procedures with LightBot 😉

IMG_7484

IMG_7495

Then he continued with Blockly Games 🙂 Lots of work today Al, well done 🙂

IMG_7516

The second newcomer is Adit 🙂

IMG_7494

Adit learned the same things Al did 🙂

IMG_7496

Adit was tutored by Capt. Faris 🙂

IMG_7504

Finished the first task

IMG_7506

and then move on to the next 🙂 Adit seemed so excited 🙂

IMG_7517

Emma was still working TicTacToe strategy

IMG_7464

The code generated some errors after Emma added a new function

IMG_7491

Well, with a code looking like this, we certainly need time to find out the problem 🙂

IMG_7475

Aidia started to create games 🙂 With the guide of Capt. Faris 🙂

IMG_7465

IMG_7488

Aidia already had ideas in mind about the game she was going to create 🙂

IMG_7469

Aidia was so excited to create her own sprites 🙂

IMG_7492

IMG_7493

Finally, Aidia’s first game 🙂

IMG_7497

She just couldn’t stop 😉

IMG_7498

Ain! He came with lots and LOTS of progress 🙂

IMG_7467

From all the tasks and challenges, he created this “Kresek Terbang” game 🙂

IMG_7471

The game is so neatly created and detail, using brilliant tricks and techniques

IMG_7472

Like usual, Ain never do anything less than excellent 🙂 Look at how many sprites and object he created 😀

IMG_7473

Ain also uses a very smart way to put objects in random while the screen moving to the left

IMG_7474

Ain gave lots of tricks and idea to Vian 🙂

IMG_7485

Vian was going to make what’s in his head happen 🙂

IMG_7486

IMG_7507

IMG_7508

Vian learned lots of new tricks to make his ideas happen 🙂 Well done Vian 🙂

IMG_7511

Vian also wanted to create his own logo 😀

IMG_7522

So we let him express his creativity for a whiel 😀

IMG_7523

Ajil’s game now working just fine 🙂 Last week we had the GameMaker kept hiccuping 😀

IMG_7499

Ajil tested all the game he had created

IMG_7509

IMG_7513

Making sure all is running smoothly 🙂 Next week Ajil will be ready to learn something new 🙂

IMG_7514

Tyo had a new idea for a new project 🙂

IMG_7501

He wanted to create a temperature converter 🙂

IMG_7520

Tyo is a very determined boy. He insisted to write his own code, line per line. He refused to copy paste examples from the internet 🙂  Tyo has a problem with casting this variable to integer

IMG_7527

Capt. Faris helped him out 🙂

IMG_7526

So this is going to be Tyo’s homework and we’ll see the progress next week 🙂

IMG_7533

Look at what Capt. Faris learned in the class while teaching 🙂

IMG_7489

Capt. Faris showed Capt. BR his ProCodeCG Attendance App with Face Recognition 😉

IMG_7521

Faris took my pics last week and let the code learn, and now it recognize my face 🙂

IMG_7529

IMG_7532

Not yet recognize Capt. BR

IMG_7530

Because the system has only learned Faris’ and my face, Capt. BR was identified as Faris 😀 Later Faris took pics of Capt. BR, feed it to the system, and it can recognize Capt. BR too 🙂 Awesome!

IMG_7531

Well, when Faris’ laptop goes like this, that means the class is over 🙂

IMG_7518

See you next week! 🙂
