The helpdesk that is always to shy to help πŸ˜€

IMG_9691

We typed lots of codes in Python today, and sure we learned a lot too! πŸ™‚

These are Zaky and Zaki πŸ™‚

IMG_9698

Capt. Zaki had to take care of two computers because Arya’s wouldn’t install Python so he kept trying to install every version while copying Arya’s data to the other computer πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class 20 Feb 2016 – Multiple Choice Quiz in Python

Standard

Hello, we’re going a bit advanced today: we create a code to read questions from file and create a GUI for displaying all the questions and answers as multiple choice quiz, also with slider window on the side πŸ˜‰

IMG_5744

It is quite a long code, reaching more than 100 lines πŸ˜€ But the kids just type it!

IMG_5745

This code runs on Python 2.7 because 3.5 won’t recognize tkMessageBox πŸ˜€

IMG_5746

Many people happen to see us doing this ask us: “Are you sure this kids understand coding? In Python?!?”. Well, this kids don’t just understand, they can modify it and also make their own πŸ™‚

IMG_5747IMG_5748IMG_5749

We got a newcomer today, a little guy named Awa, a 2nd grade πŸ™‚

IMG_5750IMG_5751IMG_5752IMG_5753

Awa was given a task to solve some simple logic, algorithm and problem solving exercise Β πŸ™‚ The dad jumped in to help! πŸ˜‰

IMG_5754

We have lots of things to do next week, but the main problem is that not all laptops have the specs for high consuming applications, and our internet connection is not very reliable lately so we will figure out something that will work for next week! πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class 13 Feb 2016 – Multiple Choice in Python, Minecraft RedStone and Blockly

Standard

Hello! Today we invaded Digilife Dago again πŸ˜€

IMG_5351

Kids kinda miss this place, they had great experience from our last Coding Camp on December here πŸ™‚

IMG_5352

Digilife provide us with lots of facilities: display, AC, internet connection and such a digital ambience πŸ™‚

IMG_5353

Today, like usual, we have several threads in class. Some of the kids areΒ workingΒ on designing elevator and door with password with RedStone in Minecraft, some of them are working on Python code for multiple choices form and some of them are given intro to coding and algorithm πŸ˜‰

This is Malik working on his multiple choice code with Tkinter Python πŸ˜‰

IMG_5354

This is Faris and Azriel, doing the same Python thing πŸ™‚

IMG_5355

Cinta is designing her own quizzes to be implemented in Python. With Capt. Syahna assisting (while reading books :D)

IMG_5356

Capt. Zaki is keeping up with things πŸ˜‰

IMG_5357

This is Gaga and Aliyah. Gaga is working on his Minecraft RedStone things and Aliyah is working on Python πŸ™‚

IMG_5358

Rizqi is a newcomer but he catches up really quick. He is working on Blockly, while babysitting his brother πŸ™‚ How cute πŸ™‚

IMG_5359

And we also have Reza, working on Python, while Ismail and Roni working on their Minecraft Mods πŸ™‚

IMG_5360

Kids always gather up when one of them start creating weird or funny codes πŸ˜€ Faris is creating a quiz where all the questions are correct :))

IMG_5361

Cinta always has LOTS of idea. That’s why this class grows each time: because kids are limitless πŸ˜‰

IMG_5364

This is Roni’s new elevator design! He uses different tricks than last week!

IMG_5365

And this is a door controlled with a password. By Gaga πŸ˜‰

IMG_5362

He uses a very complicated gate circuits to make this work!

IMG_5363

And this is a screenshot of the Python codes we have been working on today πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class 30 Jan 2016 – ComboBox, FileDialog and KeyLogger in Python

Standard

Today got lots of kids plus 2 newcomers yaaay! πŸ™‚ We continued our work on combobox, modify some file dialog with tkinter and learn to create simple keylogger πŸ˜€

IMG_4497

Some kids sit on different side.

IMG_4498

We also had this tiny little guest too πŸ™‚

IMG_4499IMG_4500

These are the newcomers, Michael and Kevin. They are twins! πŸ˜‰

IMG_4501IMG_4502IMG_4503IMG_4504IMG_4505

These ones are discussing about Farrell’s solar system code. These kids are so into science! Awesome!

IMG_4507

We always have a great time on Saturdays πŸ™‚

IMG_4508

The more the merrier! πŸ˜‰

IMG_4509IMG_4510IMG_4511

Ardi is the Algodoo expert in our class. We challenge him to copy Farrell’s solar system code in Algodoo and this is what Ardi came up with! πŸ˜‰

IMG_4512

We also did lots of debugging πŸ˜€

IMG_4519

We make sure things work in every class to be able to move further the next week!

IMG_4520IMG_4521

The class is supposed to be finished at 11. But kids usually hang around until 12 πŸ˜€

IMG_4522

We still have lots of topics to learn! We were expecting another newcomers today, too bad we gave them the wrong address 😦 But hopefully they will join us next week!

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class 23 Jan 2016 – Combo Box in Python

Standard

Hello again! Today we decided not to continue our project on App Inventor since it requires a stable and fast connection and today we got no wifi connection. App InventorΒ takes lots of time to load the emulator, plus not every kids has email account to activate an App Inventor account so we will do something else today.

IMG_4151

Today we continue working on our unfinished counting down code. And also how to create combo box so we will modify our code to have combo box to select day, month and year.

IMG_4153IMG_4152IMG_4155

Creating combo box with Python Tkinter is quite straighforward.

Bildschirmfoto 2016-01-23 um 5.31.45 PM

This one is the code we want combo box GUI to be added on.

Bildschirmfoto 2016-01-23 um 5.32.47 PM

We also got a new sample of virus so we probably will dissect it next week! πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Half-Day Coding Camp Cryptography #3

Standard

Hello! Today is the 3rd day of ProCodeCG Kids Half-Day Coding Camp Cryptography πŸ˜‰

Setting up room and prepare for a class has been a great way to start the day πŸ™‚

IMG_2603IMG_2604IMG_2605

Why take a holiday if work is so much fun? πŸ˜‰

IMG_2606

Yeaaay kids started to show up and ready to pick up where we left yesterday πŸ˜‰

IMG_2608

They couldn’t wait to start the class and to see each other too!

IMG_2609

Today we modify our previous code to have some awesome GUI πŸ™‚

IMG_2611

It took some time to work things out to get the code we want but we shared ideas and took turns to solve the problems.

IMG_2612

Coding on the spot is better than preparing a ready code because it will ignite the kids to be involved and be creative.

IMG_2613

When we got stuck, our reliable captain Zaki is always ready to google and find some solutions πŸ˜‰

IMG_2614

The kids will help each other to make their codes work

IMG_2617

IMG_2618

When the chief instructor got stuck, the lead captain got stuck too, there will be another kid find the solution πŸ˜€ This is Vai working on the main laptop to make the code work (we want the encryption to include some spaces πŸ˜€ )

IMG_2619

When the kids got tired, they just took a quick break like this LOL

IMG_2624

Or, teasing each other like this πŸ˜€

IMG_2633

But when they are serious, they look like this. Eating while working πŸ˜€

IMG_2626IMG_2627IMG_2628IMG_2629

Today we learned about Vigenere Cipher! This is Farrel reading the look up table to see how the cipher work!

IMG_2634IMG_2635

And this is us with the certificates YEAAAYYYY

IMG_2636IMG_2638IMG_2639IMG_2640

After the class. They wouldn’t stop playing together πŸ˜€

IMG_2642

The most beautiful thing in camp like this is that the kids find new friends, make new bonding, create new things and be back home happier with loads of new experience!

IMG_2644

They had packed up things but just couldn’t leave their friends πŸ˜€

IMG_2646

While some of them still working on the computer (even that the main laptop had been shut down)

IMG_2647

Look how happy they are!

IMG_2648IMG_2649

See you on the next coding camp, kids! πŸ™‚ πŸ˜‰ ❀

Here are some of what we did today πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Half-Day Coding Camp Cryptography #Day 2

Standard

Today we started to do encryption and decryption with substitution cipher!

Preparation before the class started

IMG_2539

Digilife Dago is a very nice and comfortable place, we have great internet connection, accessible power sockets, air conditioner, super big screen, clean toilets and a very friendly and nice musholla.

IMG_2540

Most of the kids continue their codes at home and show it to their friends in the morning πŸ˜‰

IMG_2542

Some kids came late due to the heavy traffic, but they quickly set things up to catch up with the class.

IMG_2543

We only have one female student (plus one female captain) in this batch πŸ™‚ Not many girls interested in coding, probably because it is some kind of intimidating? πŸ˜€

IMG_2544

We started encryption and decryption with Caesar Cipher.

IMG_2545

We encrypted some messages and then try to decrypted them.

IMG_2548

We also learned how to do the brute force! This kid (Farrell) count each letter just to find out the key! LOL

IMG_2549

Yeah, and of course, kids love to play during the class πŸ˜€

IMG_2550

 

The best thing of gathering kids in a class is when they working together and share things

IMG_2551

Give them challenges, and their bright brains will surprise you πŸ™‚

IMG_2552

We also learned about ROT13 πŸ™‚

IMG_2560

And encrypted and decrypted LOTS of messages!

IMG_2563

We also made a decryption competition πŸ˜€

IMG_2564

Some people might say that programmers have no life. That’s not true! πŸ˜‰ Look at how much we are having fun!

IMG_2566

 

Lunchtime. LOL (with hood and all) LOLIMG_2568

After the lunch we learn some password breaking logics.

IMG_2570

Also about One Time Pad encryption.

IMG_2571

We learned some GUI in Python too, to make the code user-friendly!

IMG_2572

Coding and cryptography might sound pretty darn serious but look at these kids! No frowns at all! πŸ™‚

IMG_2573 IMG_2574 IMG_2575Β Β  IMG_2578

And these are the screenshots of a bit of what we’ve learned today!
