Untitled

Kinan was back and ready to continue the work 🙂

Untitled

Kinan created nice looking RaceCar game 🙂 We had a problem with drawing so we find some pics from the internet 😀

Untitled

with coins too 🙂 (Silmi helped us to create this name)

Untitled

Koosha was also back after a looong time!

Untitled

Untitled

He brought lots of stuff 🙂

Untitled

And he revisited the last projects 🙂 This one is an NFC reader circuit. He will display the reading to the LCD

Untitled

Untitled

The codes

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

We had successfully displayed the data to LCD

Untitled

but not yet succeeded simulating e-money when some amount of money deducted from the card 🙂

Untitled

Then Koosha moved on to the other project: elevator project 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

The button wouldn’t turn the LED on so he unscrewed the box and check the connection inside 😀

Untitled

Capt. Faris still working hard on our TensorFlow project. Cloud computing didn’t work because internet was too slow. So we have to figure out something else.

Untitled

Untitled

Capt. Faris still running the machine learning after the class 🙂

Untitled

Welcome to the class Sam 😉 Sam visited the class 2 weeks ago and today he joined the class 🙂

Untitled

Sam is a focus and determined kid

Untitled

Capt. Azriel was assigned to assist him 🙂

Untitled

Sam finished all the levels even the hardest one. He worked for 3 straight hours and finished LOTS of levels!!!

Untitled

Untitled

Hello Azriel, we’ve got lots work to do

Untitled

Azriel was assigned to create a 7-segment display in Minecraft

Untitled

Azriel quickly learned from tutorials

Untitled

One digit seven-segment

Untitled

The circuits

Untitled

Untitled

Two digits seven segment 🙂 Next we’re going to create a calculator 😉

Untitled

Untitled

Azriel also continued his smart home project 🙂 He added a swimming pool that can be filled with water with a switch

Untitled

and dry it with a switch 🙂 Nice 🙂

Untitled

Nafis started to install MQTT Dash on his Android phone because he was going to learn how to control a LED with cloud 🙂

Untitled

He had assembled the LED on the board but not yet finished the code 🙂 *this is some kind of cousins bonding time 😀

Untitled

Firaas, as usual had finished his homework

Untitled

And he wanted to practice some Minecraft coding

Untitled

Untitled

This is the homework:

Untitled

It is working nicely. There was some glitches and we sorted them out 🙂

Untitled

Firaas also created his own game with animation 🙂 He’s going to add lots of things to it as soon as he got more ideas about the game, because he invented this one by himself 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Awa worked hard on his radar project 🙂

Untitled

The servo didn’t work so he had to debug the problem

Untitled

the servo is supposed to rotate so the ultrasonic sensor mounted on top of it will read the obstacles in front of this vehicle 🙂

Untitled

Silmi (purple hijab) started to create a flappy bird game 🙂

Untitled

Silmi is very good at creating sprites 🙂 That’s why we keep asking her to help Kinan 😀

Untitled

Tyo’s project keeps progressing

Untitled

Now the form can automatically count the total

Untitled

Capt. Faris, who is very fluent in Java helped Tyo to do it

Untitled

The codes

Untitled

Untitled

Ain

Untitled

and Vian

Untitled

was working on modifying the skin and GUI of Minecraft

Untitled

They creativity is limitless 😀

Untitled

Another cousins bonding after the class 🙂 Awa and Ain 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Proud to see these kids and can’t wait to see them again with the progress next week! 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming and Open Topics – 20 Jan 2018

Standard

Our Saturday coding class 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Cinta started to explore Python libraries for games

Untitled

Untitled

Faris helped Cinta to install and test PyGame

Untitled

The code

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Cinta is aiming to create something like this 🙂

Untitled

Awa was given another project 🙂

Untitled

to connect Minecraft to Arduino

Untitled

we tried several ways but nothing worked

Untitled

Neither this one 😦 We’re going to figure it out next time

Untitled

Ain was given a task to collaborate with Awa. Ain should create the structures in Minecraft while Awa connect it to the hardware in the real world

Untitled

Too bad it didn’t work yet so Ain continued his projects in Minecraft by creating more complex structures using Red Stone

Untitled

Untitled

Vian was still so interested in Minecraft Command Block

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

A tool to create command blocks

Untitled

And we also had Danen 🙂

Untitled

continuing his next game, Racing Car 🙂

Untitled

Under the supervision of Capt. Azriel (blue jacket)

Untitled

Untitled

The game is almost done 🙂 Danen will finish it next week 🙂

Untitled

Nafis was really busy doing a project for school: running text on a LCD

Untitled

Capt. Azriel made sure he type every single line, because you had to type to code 😀

Untitled

Al’s TLauncher needed to be updated so it took a while before he can start. Al learned more about looping and how to add different blocks in different colors in Minecraft with JavaScript

Untitled

Ozan was still debugging his work, using Nafis’ code just to find out if it work

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Capt. Faris continued our TensorFlow research

Untitled

While also helping other kids

Untitled

and exchanging ideas with Jundy 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

So much ideas and collaboration today 🙂 Can’t wait until next week 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

 

ProCodeCG Regular Coding Class – ESPectro/Arduino Programming & Open Topics – 13 Jan 2018

Standard

Our regular coding class is always open for any kids interested to learn about technology and want to be a programmer/researcher 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Awa (left) was doing a research on reading objects around for robots using ultrasonic (Capt. Fizhan on the right was just looking around LOL)

Untitled

But first Awa wanted to show his latest project with ProCodeCG LED

Untitled

Untitled

Then moved on to the next project

Untitled

ultrasonic and motor servo

Untitled

the ultrasonic worked but the motor servo wouldn’t spin 😀

Untitled

apparently two cables was switched and it worked after we reversed it 😀

Untitled

Firaas (yellow shirt) was ready to learn GameMaker 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Azriel (blue shirt) was assigned the task to teach Firaas 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

the sprite

Untitled

the wall

Untitled

the first game created by Firaas yaaay 🙂 Firaas will learn to create another game next week 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Cinta was still doing the research about creating a story generator with Python 😉

Untitled

Untitled

Cinta discussed the content of the database to create the story with another writer 😀

Untitled

And another one joining in 🙂

Untitled

These three are brilliant girls who love writing 🙂

Untitled

And Cinta’s code is a combination of Cinta’s writing and coding skill 🙂 Nice!

Untitled

For next week Cinta wanted to create a game in Python 🙂 We’ll see what game it will be 🙂

Untitled

Ain and Awa explored lots of structures with RedStone in Minecraft

Untitled

Ain created lots of things in there

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Even rockets 🙂

Untitled

and infinite rails 🙂

Untitled

Azriel was also exploring structure with RedStone in Minecraft

Untitled

He created a dispenser than can give you meat and water

Untitled

Untitled

A seven segment display

Untitled

Untitled

and more 🙂

Untitled

And we have Sulaiman joining the regular class yaay 🙂 Warming up with Minecraft Hour of Code

Untitled

Sulaiman did it very well because he’d done this with Thunkable when he was taking Creating Apps topic on the last Coding Camp 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

We download the requirement and setup the computer while Sulaiman was working with Minecraft Hour of Code, and when he finished, we’re ready to go 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Ain (wearing hat) helped Sulaiman with the setup

Untitled

Sulaiman learned to create simple structures using JavaScript code in Minecraft

Untitled

 

Untitled

 

Untitled

Next time he will write his own code and create more complex structures like this one 🙂

Untitled

Until next week 😉

 

 

 

 

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming & Open Topics – 6 Jan 2018

Standard

Hello Saturday class 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

We had a newcomer: Firaas 🙂

Untitled

There was a problem with Firaas’ laptop: it wouldn’t let browser to browse 😀 Capt. Azriel (green shirt) tried to help

Untitled

Capt. Faris (dark grey ProCodeCG jacket) and Capt. Ain (grey shirt) helped too

Untitled

It took 3 captains and we still couldn’t figure it out 😀

Untitled

So we took different laptop and let Firaas started learning basic programming with Minecraft Hour of Code peacefully 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Yep, it’s done! 🙂

Untitled

and then Blockly Games

Untitled

Next, CodeCombat 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Ain helped

Untitled

Firaas learned for 3 straight hours 🙂

Untitled

So he deserved some Minecraft time 5-10 mins before the class ended 🙂

Untitled

Ain learned a new thing: BlocklyCraft 🙂 A drag-and-drop Minecraft Modding programming 🙂

Untitled

Capt. Faris gave Ain a jump start 🙂

Untitled

Ain will be given the task to explore BlocklyCraft 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

Nafis was assigned to debug his project all over again 😀

Untitled

start from scratch

Untitled

ready to test

Untitled

the LCD didn’t work

Untitled

but the ultrasonic sensor worked

Untitled

trying to make LCD works

Untitled

Untitled

it did, and counting 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

then we added buzzer, and it worked 🙂 we still hadn’t time to figure out how to make it beep when it counts 🙂

Untitled

Cinta was doing another challenge in Python

Untitled

Untitled

Creating a Hangman game 🙂

Untitled

These girls collaborating to create the questions 😀

Untitled

Untitled

The result

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

Untitled

And for the next session, Cinta wanted to do some Minecraft Modding 🙂

Untitled

Untitled

While Azriel had a bad headache LOL

Untitled

We were trying to figure out this code to create a triangle in Minecraft using BlocklyCraft

Untitled

We had tried every possible ways

Untitled

And yet it still didn’t work

Untitled

And kept giving us false result :((

Untitled

Untitled

So we called Faris for help

Untitled

And he found out that something was wrong with the converter and it kept crashing the server

Untitled

Apparently the converter from Blockly to JavaScript didn’t work smoothly.

Untitled

So we assigned another task to Azriel: creating structures with RedStone

Untitled

And our research, conducted by Capt. Faris had shown lots of progress

Untitled

now the algorithm can count objects

Untitled

So we add another data sets

Untitled

we used bigger data set for higher precision

Untitled

comparison of left: larger dataset, right: smaller dataset

Untitled

the counting

Untitled

Untitled

the dataset

Untitled

how to change dataset

Untitled

we need place to run the training because the last time we tried, Google Cloud Engine didn’t work 😦

Untitled

Will be reporting again next week 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming – 11 Nov 2017

Standard

Hello from our kids regular coding class 🙂

IMG_1715

Today we only had one kid doing ESPectro Programming: Ozaaaaan 🙂 😉

IMG_1718

Ozan had to continue his project: ultrasonic with buzzer and LED 🙂

IMG_1719

We changed the plan a bit: the buzzer will beep each time the ultrasonic detects something, not when the counter reaches a certain number

IMG_1721

Ozan had to rewrite the code by combining several files together 🙂

IMG_1722

It didn’t work so Ozan had to try ultrasonic only with buzzer, without LCD to see if it works. Then attaching the LCD after that 😀

IMG_1733

Hang on Zan, you can do it! LOL 😀

IMG_1740

We still have next week! 😉

ProCodeCG – BDV – codeMeetUp() #113 IoT Series Day #1 – 6 Nov 2017

Standard

Today ProCodeCG and BDV started Day #1 of codeMeetUp() IoT Series 🙂

ProCodeCG - codeMeetUp() #113 - ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() #113 - IoT Weather Programming Series 1:4 - small

Today we learned some intro about IoT, take a look at some devboards and sensors

IMG_1346 IMG_1347

We used devboard from DyCodeX: ESPectro ver 3 🙂 It is available on Makestro Shop 🙂

IMG_1348

and then started to install Arduino IDE, drivers and ESPectro Libraries

IMG_1349

As usual, the beginning is always painful because it takes time to download the libraries, and do the setting 🙂

IMG_1350 2

We had kids in the class too 🙂

IMG_1351 2

IMG_1357

Everybody seemed to have fun, despite of the obstacles (different on every OS :D)

IMG_1352 IMG_1353

IMG_1354

The first group successfully installed ESPectro library and make the LED blinks, plus turned neopixel off. They were given task to make neopixel blink but time was up so we had to continue next week 🙂

IMG_1355 2

ESPectro32 is already available on Makestro Shop, to those who are interested 😉

IMG_1356

See you next week 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Arduino/ESPectro Programming

Standard

Our Arduino/ESPectro Programming class today 🙂

IMG_0708

IMG_0728 1

One of our extension cable didn’t work so Capt. Awa opened and checked it with voltmeter 🙂

IMG_0715

He found the source of problem and fixed it 🙂

IMG_0716

Took extra patience and some amount of perseverance to do this kind of job 😀

IMG_0717

IMG_0724

It took lots of positions too 😀

IMG_0725

And finally after several testing, Capt. Awa officially announced that the extension cable was working properly and ready to be used. Thanks so much Capt.!

IMG_0733

After got his technical support job done, Capt. Awa got back to his sonar project 🙂 He was experimenting with Parallax
IMG_0711//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0722

and its standard servo 🙂

IMG_0723

the ultrasonic was mounted on top of the servo

IMG_0778

Capt. Awa teamed up with Clarence because Clarence will develop the code to display the reading from Awa’s sonar system to a TFT display

IMG_0734 1

IMG_0735 1

A really great teamwork 🙂

IMG_0756

Clarence also has his own project, sorting algorithm visualization

IMG_0741

He added more features including serial monitor commands to run the sorting using any chosen algorithm

IMG_0770//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0771//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

IMG_0755

IMG_0772

Then he started working on ultrasonic

IMG_0790

and the reading worked just fine

IMG_0787

IMG_0788

IMG_0789

Next is to add micro servo  🙂

IMG_0792

Ozan was still struggling with adding buzzer to ultrasonic counter

IMG_0727

The ultrasonic counter worked fine until he added a buzzer 😀

IMG_0720

We’ve done lots of debugging and try-and-retry attempts but it still didnt’ work 🙂 Have to try again next week 🙂
IMG_0730

IMG_0777//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

After the class: kids just wouldn’t stop 😀

IMG_0798

Friendship scenes after the class 🙂

IMG_0800

IMG_0795

Capt. Fizhan (corner) was given a project to design a logo for Bu Rieny (Coding Mom Batch-3) with Wibi (middle) and Ozan (right) accompanying 🙂

IMG_0796

Will be reporting more excitement next week 😉
