ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming today πŸ™‚

IMG_3259

We had a newcomer, Emma πŸ™‚

IMG_3260

Emma is interested to learn C so she was given an intro to Arduino to try some C-like language πŸ™‚

Hello Rafi welcome back πŸ™‚

IMG_3261

Rafi picked up where he left more than a month ago πŸ™‚

IMG_3281

He created an animation of charging battery πŸ™‚

IMG_3285

IMG_3286

IMG_3287

Raul was also catching up with stuff too πŸ™‚ He was working on synchronized clock via internet through wifi on board ESPectro πŸ™‚

IMG_3262

Ruben had finished multiple LEDs last week. Today he learned about RGB LED

IMG_3273

IMG_3274

IMG_3290

Under Capt. Faris’ supervision πŸ˜‰

IMG_3263 IMG_3264

IMG_3277

This cute little guy took notes! A rare scene! Kids should be taught to do this! πŸ™‚

IMG_3282

Ruben seems to have another calling too: drawing πŸ™‚

IMG_3283

IMG_3288

Ok, with Capt. Faris assistance,

IMG_3291

Ruben has also finished to make a button worked too πŸ˜‰

IMG_3309

Hello Rezky πŸ™‚

IMG_3265

Rezky fixed what didn’t work the last time

IMG_3275

He redid the button and button to serial section, and both worked nicely!

IMG_3279

IMG_3280

IMG_3284

Abdillah was given a task to create a counter with an ultrasonic sensor

IMG_3266

It worked perfectly with an Arduino πŸ™‚

IMG_3267

The ultrasonic sensor will count how many objects detected πŸ™‚

IMG_3268

Next is to make this work with ESPectro so we can send the data via cloud πŸ™‚

IMG_3269

and make LCD I2C works with ESPectro

IMG_3305

Abdillah was helping Rezky with library errors πŸ™‚

IMG_3293

Rezvan was back too πŸ™‚ Β Working with button to serial

IMG_3306

And worked nicely! Next is button with LED πŸ™‚

IMG_3307

Capt. Malik (started to have being in a pic :D) was working on air-drum project πŸ™‚

IMG_3308

We’ve got lots of project going not only in the class but also when the kids are off the class πŸ˜‰ There gonna be lots of progress next Saturday πŸ™‚ Can’t wait πŸ˜‰

 

ProCodeCG Kids Reguler Coding Class – ESPectro Programming – 17 June 2017

Standard

Hello, this is the report of our Kids ESPectro Programming Class today πŸ™‚

Rezky start to learn about button and sending the status to serial monitor πŸ™‚

IMG_1528

Danesh learned the same things as Rezky

IMG_1553

IMG_1533

While Ozan finished simple smiley animation

IMG_1531

IMG_1541

IMG_1534

but had problems connecting to a synchronized clock through the internet πŸ™‚

IMG_1535 2

We’ll get back to it and fix it next time πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming – 10 June 2017

Standard

ProCodeCG Kids ESPectro Programming Class yesterday πŸ™‚

IMG_0813

IMG_0816

Very few kids in the morning

IMG_0814

After some more kids showed up πŸ™‚

IMG_0836

Each kids picked up where they left last week πŸ™‚

IMG_0817

Rezky had gone through the installation and setting process and his ESPectro was ready to be explored πŸ™‚

IMG_0822

We started with LED blinking πŸ™‚

IMG_0825

While Ozan started a new sub chapter: displaying a synchronized clock via interned and display it to LCD

IMG_0828

Ozan now knows how to debug the code, after several rounds, he finally made it error free, but the LCD still not displaying the time.

IMG_0859

We will debug it next week πŸ™‚

IMG_0834 2

BTW, what a nice suprise, our Lead Captain gave us a visit πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Regular Coding Class yesterday πŸ™‚

IMG_0300

IMG_0334

IMG_0324

Clarence came with lots of progress πŸ™‚

IMG_0288

He made some improvements on the game he created with ESPectro and TFT Display

IMG_0289

IMG_0291

Clarence can sit all day all night to do this, his parents always have a hard time picking him up because he would just sit and work until someone drag the table and the carpet he sits on πŸ˜€

IMG_0293

Hello Ozan, one of theΒ awkward poses we get each time we take his pic because he didn’t like to be in a pic πŸ˜€

IMG_0295

Ozan finished two tasks

IMG_0304 2

One is showing a smiley face on the LCD

IMG_0306

IMG_0307

And the other one is to show custom chars

IMG_0315

IMG_0322

Well done Ozan πŸ™‚

IMG_0323

FriendshipΒ πŸ™‚

IMG_0325

Rezky was still struggling with ESPectro installment and setting up πŸ™‚

IMG_0296

Painful at the beginning but worth it in the end πŸ™‚

IMG_0339

Malik had successfully completed his task to connect a gyro to LEDs and then started his Air Drum Project

IMG_0297

IMG_0301

We had to shop some more components

IMG_0319

IMG_0328

Malik had finished typing all the code with no errors. Once we get the components, we can start to build it πŸ™‚

IMG_0338

Rezvan, Malik’s little brother, came to the class after his taekwondo class πŸ™‚

IMG_0330

Rezvan finished a code to activate ProCodeCG LED code at home πŸ™‚

IMG_0332

Rezvan with Malik’s toolbox πŸ™‚ Looking for resistors with correct values πŸ™‚

IMG_0333

Rezvan was going to test an RGB LED

IMG_0337

IMG_0348

Worked just fine. Yes πŸ™‚

IMG_0352

See you again next week πŸ™‚ Our regular coding class will be off only during Coding Camp πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG – Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming – 20 May 2017

Standard

ProCodeCG Kids ESPectro Programming yesterday πŸ™‚

IMG_9282

We started to create simple animation on 16×2 LCD πŸ™‚

IMG_9283

Rafi would not stop doing something until he gets it right πŸ™‚

IMG_9284

We were finding out how to make animation without the LCD keeps flickering

IMG_9288

As soon as we find out, we will start making more complex animation and probably games on 16×2 LCD πŸ™‚

IMG_9289

Rafi was making a charging battery animation

IMG_9302

We are planning to create a little sticky man animation running through one side of the LCD to the other side πŸ˜‰

IMG_9301

A pleasant surprise: our lead captain, zaki, gave us a visit πŸ™‚

IMG_9292

Welcome back, cap! πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming – 6 May 2017

Standard

ESPectro Programming class yesterday πŸ™‚

IMG_8233

Clarence had a some interesting thing to show us, like usual πŸ™‚

IMG_8234

He created a clock that is synchronized to internet with ESPectro and TFT display. This one is before connected to the internet.

IMG_8231

This time when it’s connected to the internet and synchronized
IMG_8241

Rafi missed several classes so he had to keep up and started with connecting to wifi using ESPectro

IMG_8235

He was so glad to be able to scan and display the details of every available networks πŸ™‚

IMG_8253

He turned on teethering on his smartphone

IMG_8255

and see it on the list πŸ™‚ The signal is -47dBm which is quite strong πŸ™‚

IMG_8254

Ozan was keeping up with LCD display πŸ™‚

IMG_8236

After installing some libraries and fix some error, Ozan finally able to send text to be displayed on LCD πŸ™‚

IMG_8263

Farrell was back πŸ™‚

IMG_8237

He insisted to continue his SSTV project πŸ™‚

IMG_8243

Ren and Mom πŸ™‚

IMG_8238

Ren finished up two tasks

IMG_8249

displaying custom chars to LCD

IMG_8248

and displaying the info of wifi connected to πŸ™‚

IMG_8262

Danesh was still catching up with button to serial code πŸ™‚

IMG_8239

Raul finished 2 tasks

IMG_8240

displaying custom chars

IMG_8245

and displaying wifi info

IMG_8246

and this one refused to leave the class eventhough all stuff had been returned to the storage room πŸ˜€

IMG_8284

See you all kids, next Saturday πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – ESPectro Programming – 22 April 2017

Standard

Our ESPectro Programming class yesterday πŸ™‚ Muhammad arrived early and set up the class, thanks so much πŸ™‚

IMG_7258

Yesterday we finishing some installation and start testing the ESPectro starting from LED, button, and then neopixel. Some had tried the wifi connection as well πŸ™‚

This is Ren (left side, with glasses) assisting Nafis to debug his program πŸ™‚

IMG_7259

Naifs was so excited that the installation was completely done and he could start exploring the development board πŸ˜‰

IMG_7262

Muhammad was catching up with the handout, he was testing the neopixel

IMG_7263

Reza creating the traffic light with neopixel and button for pedestrian crossing πŸ™‚

IMG_7264

Ren completed all the task given πŸ™‚

IMG_7265

Danesh started following handout from the beginning, from LED to button πŸ™‚ He will probably start the neopixel next week πŸ™‚

IMG_7267

Raul quickly finished his neopixel traffic light and tried the wifi connection coding

IMG_7268

Some codes was already in the example sketches, but most of them should be typed manually πŸ™‚

IMG_7270

But if you bear with it, things will work πŸ˜‰

IMG_7273

Reza was doing modification on wifi connecting code so it can detect more than one connection πŸ™‚

IMG_7279

IMG_7282//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js

We will explore more about wifi connections next week πŸ™‚
