Coding crowd this Saturday πŸ˜‰

IMG_8533

IMG_8555 IMG_8556

IMG_8557

Hafiz is working on Plant vs Zombie Game. It is quite difficult and takes more time to develop than the previous ones

IMG_8509

Preparing the sprites

IMG_8505

the assets

IMG_8506

each sprite is carefully designed πŸ™‚

IMG_8528 IMG_8534

the background

IMG_8535

IMG_8554

Testing plant placing

IMG_8560

The objects are now placed neatly in the room πŸ˜‰

IMG_8561

More objects added πŸ™‚ Nice! Next is to add scoring and spawning the zombie randomly πŸ™‚

IMG_8587

Sam’s work is getting harder and harder to do since the target is to release this app to PlayStore

IMG_8507

We need to think how to manage the screens and the size of the app

IMG_8520

We are discussing the screen flow and the best UI/UX design especially to show the user the progress of memorizing the Juz’Amma

IMG_8523

we just realized that Sam’s app has too many screens and that makes the app size grows. The more the screens, the harder it is to manage

IMG_8524

Capt. Faris had his own app developed with Android Studio, and he shared his architecture to us

IMG_8529

it is time to throw in database πŸ˜‰ and the trick is to create limited screen, and reload the view from the database

IMG_8530

so Sam has to learn about accessing TinyDB πŸ˜€

IMG_8545

It leaves him like this LOL

IMG_8583

Fadhlan, stop eating the candy and start to work! πŸ˜€

IMG_8508

We have to work on this: testing the right and left motor plus the controller, and make it navigates

IMG_8519

Working hardddd there you go πŸ˜€

IMG_8536

IMG_8537

Capt. Awa helped us testing the robot *and ran away when the robot was activated because it refuse to avoid obstacles LOL but at least we know that button, LED, buzzer, wheels, are working and we just need to check the ultrasonic before adding compass and bluetooth module πŸ˜€

IMG_8569

Capt. Faris and his research πŸ˜€ He was given a challenge to learn how to prevent shoplifting with camera object detection

IMG_8510 IMG_8525 IMG_8546

Capt. Awa, brought new toys!

IMG_8511

The new stuffs have the same size as a coin!

IMG_8512

wowww, modules for TinyDuino

IMG_8513

IMG_8514

IMG_8515

But we still couldn’t get these little mates to work :(( We suspected the USB-UART driver or probably the port

IMG_8526

So Capt. Awa explored another thing: basic electronics simulation

IMG_8542 IMG_8550

IMG_8553 IMG_8558

and then helping us with the robot

IMG_8570

the robot was going in circles so Capt. Awa helped us switching the polarity πŸ™‚

IMG_8572

Testing is done for today (too many things being hit by the robot LOL)

IMG_8574

Badi’s website is ready to be uploaded to public πŸ™‚ Today Badi will buy domain and hosting and upload it

IMG_8521

We’re searching for the best option, and after we got one, Pavilion19 will have a website πŸ™‚

IMG_8540

Aidia is so excited about her Minecraft Project today πŸ™‚

IMG_8517

She brought lots of books for references πŸ™‚

IMG_8518

IMG_8538

IMG_8559

Aidia does both design and mechanical structures in Minecraft

IMG_8564

IMG_8566

Look at this: she created a locker system below a beautiful building she designed πŸ˜‰ How nice!!!

IMG_8584

Inside the locker corridor πŸ™‚ Next week we’re going to add button to get a specific locker sent to a specific person πŸ˜‰

IMG_8585

Al is going to make another animation, yaaay πŸ™‚

IMG_8522 IMG_8527

He’s getting better πŸ™‚

IMG_8541

Al finds references on the internet to get more ideas

IMG_8551

And he created animation for educational purposes like this one πŸ™‚

IMG_8552

IMG_8589

We have a newcomer: welcome Andra πŸ™‚

IMG_8543

Like the others, Andra had to go through the intro to programming

IMG_8549 IMG_8563

One challenge down

IMG_8565

Now another one, and Andra can do it very quickly with lots of excitement πŸ™‚

IMG_8567

IMG_8580

Yogi came with the same problem from the last class: displaying a score that follows the object πŸ™‚

IMG_8547

This one worked for Game Maker Studio 2 but not with version 1 so we tried so many ways and still couldn’t figure it out. Don’t worry Yogi we’ll work it out

IMG_6283

Syadad is now ready for a code combat πŸ˜‰

IMG_8562

Syadad is very excited with this challenge, especially because now he has a friend: Andra πŸ™‚

IMG_8568

Next week Syadad will be ready for creating games yaay!!!

IMG_8581

Until then! πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 16 Feb 2019

Standard

ProCodeCG Kids R&D can be found here every Saturday πŸ˜‰ We don’t need fancy stuff, just create things and being productive with whatever we have πŸ˜‰

IMG_5837 IMG_5838

Sam’s Memorizing Juz’amma App is still in progress πŸ™‚

IMG_5808

IMG_5829

IMG_5830

we do some code refactoring today, by adding index to refer to each verse

IMG_5839

Capt. Faris helped Sam rewrite the code to be more efficient πŸ™‚

IMG_5840 IMG_5841

IMG_5847

Badi decided to learn web design today πŸ˜‰

IMG_5809

So he started to learn HTML and CSS

IMG_5824 IMG_5827

IMG_5846

He now can create his own .HTML file and display it on a browser

IMG_5865

and after finishing HTML and CSS, Badi will learn some JavaScript to make the website more interactive πŸ˜‰

IMG_5874

Faris is going to continue researching about Machine Learning today, and his tasks is to explore the IBM platform including setting up accounts for ProCodeCG Kids

IMG_5810

Student management

IMG_5817

Creating an app with Thunkable to be connected to the machine learning platform

IMG_5825

setting up the classification

IMG_5826

Faris is also doing this research on generating random faces and now giving colors to a black and white pics with machine learning (the image on the left is the black and white, in the middle is the result of machine learning, and the right side is the real pic)

IMG_5876

Djalu has been added to the platform and ready to explore

IMG_5811

IMG_5821

This is what Djalu trying to do: classifying two groups

IMG_5835 IMG_5836

The result πŸ™‚

IMG_5855

Faishal is also being registered to the machine learning platform to explore

IMG_5812

but apparently the platform is not stable yet

IMG_5816

It took a long time to do the authentication and to get the result

IMG_5822

IMG_5823

So then we switch into creating a game with Thunkable

IMG_5857

The result: we will score if we hit the yellow ball

IMG_5867

and the score will be decreased when we hit the red ball

IMG_5871

the control is done by tilting the phone. This is the code

IMG_5873

Fadhlan got so much things to do today: assembling the robot with compass and 3 ultrasonic sensor

IMG_5813

Testing the compass

IMG_5818 IMG_5819

IMG_5828

IMG_5852

Awa said he prefer to sit on the floor πŸ˜€ It makes him easier to think LOL

IMG_5862

What’s next?

IMG_5856

Next is to print the RFID reading to the serial monitor

IMG_5853

We’re going to count each time we tap each RFID card

IMG_5858

the result

IMG_5861

and then we decided to make our own prototype of Β unmanned store πŸ˜‰

Each card will represents an item with different prices. So when we tap the card, it will count the total price for each item

IMG_5875 IMG_5877

IMG_5878 IMG_5879

The result πŸ˜‰

IMG_5880

Capt. Awa refused to stop before finishing up the code (this is definitely one of his glorious day! ;))
