ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 20 April 2019

Standard

Saturday Coding Research Group 😀

IMG_9910 IMG_9911

IMG_9912

Badi is researching how to activate https for his mom’s website 🙂 He had finished the design, had registered the domain and got a hosting service, now Badi wants the website to be secured with https 😉

IMG_9900

The website before https *look at the address with “not secure”

IMG_9908

and then we searched and researched on how to activate the secure service

IMG_9906

yep, https is now activated 🙂 Nice work Badi! 😉

 

IMG_9921

Hafiz is on the last stage of his PVZ Game

IMG_9899

After making sure the main features are all there

IMG_9907

and everything is working fine

IMG_9915

Next week Hafiz is ready to start a new challenge 😉

IMG_9922

Fadhlan’s quest today is to test bluetooth module with bluetooth app

IMG_9901

we had to test the bluetooth before integrate it to the robot

IMG_9905

the schematic

IMG_9913

the code

IMG_9916

the app

IMG_9934

and still. Didn’t work. We’re going to connect it with the PC/laptop next time

IMG_9936

Faishal is learning shell scripting 😉

IMG_9902

IMG_9914

Faishal is learning the syntax and also the logics

IMG_9919

He also learned some binary operations like and, or, xor, shift left and shift right. And also some sign and unsigned integer concepts 😉

IMG_9925 IMG_9926

Soon we’re going to have an network security engineer 😉

IMG_9945

Capt. Faris

IMG_9903

is creating a new machine learning project

IMG_9927

This system predicts if a phrase contains negative or positive sentiment

IMG_9928

Kinan is back to explore GameMaker Studio

IMG_9917

It takes time to upgrade our previous game created with Game Maker to Game Maker Studio 🙂

IMG_9923

The panel is totally different and the commands are also a bit overwhelming 🙂

IMG_9929

We just need to keep going because we can create more complex games with this one 🙂 Hang on a bit more Kinan 😉

IMG_9942

Andra started his Minecraft Modding with JavaScript today 🙂

IMG_9918 IMG_9924

Capt. Faris taught him about the server and how to typed in simple JavaScript commands

IMG_9930

Andra also tried existing codes for building castle, rainbow, etc.

IMG_9944

Andra learned to create basic shapes like boxes, cylinder and prism

IMG_9946

Minecraft is very good for kids to learn about structures and logics and also art and creativity 😉

IMG_9951

Syadad started to create a new game today

IMG_9920 IMG_9933

It is a shooting game 🙂

IMG_9943

The background and the room

IMG_9947

The game looks like a PacMan PvZ Game 🙂 Awesome hybrid game 😀

IMG_9949

The snack for today is from Padasuuka Donut 🙂 Thanks Mama Edo 🙂

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 13 April 2019

Standard

Our coding vibes every Saturday 🙂

IMG_9535 IMG_9540

Fadhlan got a new solder and compared it to the old one 😀

IMG_9507

And he also got a super big and tidy toolbox!

IMG_9506

Very well organized

IMG_9508

Especially with those little compartments! Nice job 🙂

IMG_9513

So now he can start to work happily 😀

IMG_9509

Today’s work is to install power supply for the robot

IMG_9512

replacing a motor that stopped working

IMG_9524

now all working

IMG_9537

the next step is adding a switch

IMG_9546

All working well. Next week we will add bluetooth module

IMG_9547

Badi has got serious work in registering a domain and choosing hosting configuration

IMG_9510

He had to read lots of tutorials and manuals

IMG_9522

Including chat the customer service to activate the system with the correct payment amount and the chosen configuration

IMG_9543

Faishal is still exploring computer security and Kali Linux

IMG_9511

He is learning how to change IP address and manage an attack

IMG_9520 IMG_9562

IMG_9563

Hafiz works really hard on this one because this game has a whole lot complexity and details than any games he had ever created 🙂

IMG_9515

The more characters and features we added to the game, the harder to make it work 😀

IMG_9517

IMG_9521

Syadad lost his game from last week so he had to started from the beginning

IMG_9519

but it is ok, he managed to catch up 🙂

IMG_9534 IMG_9542

IMG_9545

This is even better than the first one 😉

IMG_9555

Capt. Faris got an important task to make darknet works on this computer 😀

IMG_9523

Capt. Awa wasn’t in the mood doing electronics

IMG_9533

He’s challenging himself to create difficult structures

IMG_9544 IMG_9556

Koosha showed his new mods in Minecraft to create an airport and aircrafts

IMG_9536 IMG_9550

IMG_9551 IMG_9552

IMG_9554

Koosha is also doing research on how to connect Minecraft to Arduino and he did 🙂 Now we can build some switches in Minecraft to activate real LEDs in the real world 🙂

IMG_9558

Andra had to finished Code Combat today

IMG_9539

and after he finished this one, he will learn how to code in Minecraft 🙂

IMG_9541

IMG_9553

So many excitements awaits next week 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 30 Mar 2019

Standard

Coding crowd this Saturday 😉

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 🙂

IMG_8528 IMG_8534

the background

IMG_8535

IMG_8554

Testing plant placing

IMG_8560

The objects are now placed neatly in the room 😉

IMG_8561

More objects added 🙂 Nice! Next is to add scoring and spawning the zombie randomly 🙂

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 😉 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 😀

IMG_8545

It leaves him like this LOL

IMG_8583

Fadhlan, stop eating the candy and start to work! 😀

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 😀

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 😀

IMG_8569

Capt. Faris and his research 😀 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 🙂

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 🙂 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 🙂

IMG_8540

Aidia is so excited about her Minecraft Project today 🙂

IMG_8517

She brought lots of books for references 🙂

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 😉 How nice!!!

IMG_8584

Inside the locker corridor 🙂 Next week we’re going to add button to get a specific locker sent to a specific person 😉

IMG_8585

Al is going to make another animation, yaaay 🙂

IMG_8522 IMG_8527

He’s getting better 🙂

IMG_8541

Al finds references on the internet to get more ideas

IMG_8551

And he created animation for educational purposes like this one 🙂

IMG_8552

IMG_8589

We have a newcomer: welcome Andra 🙂

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 🙂

IMG_8567

IMG_8580

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

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 😉

IMG_8562

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

IMG_8568

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

IMG_8581

Until then! 😉

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – 23 Mar 2019

Standard

Our regular productive Saturday 🙂

IMG_8105

Aidia’s animation with Scratch 🙂

IMG_8065

IMG_8066 IMG_8067

Today Aidia started a new Minecraft Project

IMG_8068 IMG_8083

IMG_8086 IMG_8087

Aidia installed Pivot Animator because she wants to create animation

IMG_8103

But today she focused on building things with RedStone

IMG_8118

Aidia created some rollercoasters and our plan is to add counter to count how many cycles a cart has gone through

IMG_8123

Sam is still working on adding more features and improving the UI/UX of his Juz’amma App 🙂

IMG_8069

IMG_8082

We’re finding ways to give user the info about how many verses have been memorized

IMG_8088

There are some alternatives: with progress bar, with checklist, or numbers

IMG_8089

For now each verse has a check list, the next is how to show the summary 😉

IMG_8129

Badi has made excellent progress!

IMG_8070

The website is done!

IMG_8074

With the booking calendar!

IMG_8075

whoaaa this is incredible 🙂

IMG_8092

IMG_8076

The gallery

IMG_8078

IMG_8077

The booking details

IMG_8095

For next we will add number of visitor and probably a chatbot 🙂

IMG_8097

And next week we will learn how to upload the website 🙂

IMG_8128

Hafiz finally finished the Endless Runner Game

IMG_8071

IMG_8072

 

IMG_8099

The next is Plant vs Zombie Game 🙂

IMG_8106

IMG_8115 IMG_8126

Fadhlan has to install all the components today: button, LED, buzzer, micro servo and ultrasonic sensor. And we’re going to see the robot navigate and gathering radar data

IMG_8079 IMG_8073

Fadhlan is making his way to make the micro servo securely planted on the platform

IMG_8084 IMG_8091

Fadhlan is enjoying things like this

IMG_8096

Thing most kids are avoiding 😀

IMG_8098

Nice installation

IMG_8104

Undergone navigating and mapping test

IMG_8117

the readings 🙂 The remaining problem is the wheels wouldn’t move. Will check on that next week

IMG_8120

Capt. Faris explored deeper about faking image, videos and voice

IMG_8080

He is really doing a serious research

IMG_8107

He even investigated how to do deep learning from a 6 months chatting history

IMG_8125

Abil started to create his shooting game today

IMG_8081

The assets are finished but not yet the code 😉

IMG_8085

IMG_8110

Syadad had finished lots of Minecraft Hour of Code Series and LightBots at home

IMG_8108

Today he started a Blockly Games journey 😉

IMG_8112 IMG_8114

After Syadad is done with Blockly and CodeCombat then we will start creating games 😉

IMG_8122

IMG_8127

Every kid has their own pace and interests, that’s why they have to be treated personally and differently the bring out their best 😉

IMG_7655 IMG_7660

IMG_7677

Today Aidia is going to finish up the Railroad Gate Project 😉

IMG_7634

We’re going to remove 3 of the LEDs to free some ports for the ultrasonic sensors

IMG_7635 IMG_7636

We have removed 3 LEDs, connect all ultrasonic sensors and make some adjustments with the code. It worked nicely, so Aidia’s Mom now can cover all the cables and stuff with pretty garden just like before 😉

IMG_7637

Since Aidia had finished the project, she can choose the next project, which is Minecraft Modding 🙂

IMG_7654

The reference book 🙂

IMG_7699

Aidia was asked to create the Railroad Gate Project in Minecraft but she said she wanted to build things before getting into RedStone stuff 😀

IMG_7678 IMG_7688

IMG_7697

IMG_7701

Sam is working on adding more features to his Juz’amma App

IMG_7641

IMG_7656 IMG_7657

Now each verse has button to mark if the user has memorized it 🙂 Progress bar is going to be added too 😉

IMG_7666

We want to make sure that the app will help the user to track their progress and motivate them to memorize more verses 🙂

IMG_7667

IMG_7669 IMG_7681

Badi got an important task to do about the website design: finding the best design and implement it

IMG_7648

one of the references

IMG_7651

Badi has a good sense as a programmer. He can dive into the codes and read the connections between different parts

IMG_7652

The website

IMG_7653

We’re going to add hovering menu dropdown

IMG_7665

Nicely implemented

IMG_7674

Badi searches and reads lots of examples and codes and modify his own code based on them

IMG_7683

Badi also finds a way to see the technology being used by a website plus the score of the design

Hoping the mom won’t be furious when we cut the styrofoam open to check the wiring 🙂

IMG_7268

Testing the coding and the wiring

IMG_7270

Checking every wires, every components

IMG_7271

And finally works but we’re going to improve this next week because we’re out of port so we had to use port 0 and 1 which cause problems uploading the sketch to the arduino 🙂 We’re going to reduce the LED so we can get more ports for ultrasonic sensors 😉

IMG_7280 IMG_7285

Sam’s father wants us to make Sam’s Juz’amma ProCodeCG App a real app 🙂

IMG_7254
