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

Standard

Today ProCodeCG and BDV started Day #1 of codeMeetUp() IoT Series πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚ It is available on Makestro Shop πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

IMG_1350 2

We had kids in the class too πŸ™‚

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 πŸ™‚

IMG_1355 2

ESPectro32 is already available on Makestro Shop, to those who are interested πŸ˜‰

See you next week πŸ˜‰

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Espectro Programming – 8 April 2017

Standard

Hello Saturday πŸ™‚

IMG_6284

Every Saturday kids report their progress or ongoing project πŸ™‚ Koosha created an “operating system” using batch file πŸ™‚

IMG_6281

very interesting πŸ™‚

IMG_6283

Even Faris wanted to try it πŸ™‚

IMG_6305

Koosha finally find out how to change the colors of neopixel πŸ™‚

IMG_6302

Clarence came with lots of progress πŸ™‚

IMG_6294

IMG_6295

He is still working on data visualization

IMG_6286

He was asked to read a sensor and display the reading, and he did πŸ™‚

IMG_6314

IMG_6313

IMG_6298IMG_6288

Raul followed the handout very smoothly today πŸ™‚ He finished all the task: button, button to serial monitor and neopixel πŸ™‚

IMG_6285

IMG_6291

IMG_6289

We had a newcomer: Danesh πŸ™‚ Danesh Mom is a Coding Mom Alumni. She understands about coding so she was really helpful with the painful process of installing today :0

IMG_6290

Don’t worry Danesh, we will use the toolkit as soon as we finish with this installation and setup process πŸ™‚

IMG_6300

We also had Gyan joining Espectro Class today πŸ™‚ He also had to gone through painful process of installation and setting just like Danesh did πŸ˜€ We had to continue next week πŸ™‚

IMG_6296

Rafi finished his tasks too πŸ™‚

IMG_6292

Rafi looked so happy to see how neopixel changing colors like RGB LED πŸ™‚

IMG_6306

After 2 weeks of installation etc process, now it’s getting easier to do things with Espectro πŸ™‚

IMG_6303 IMG_6304

A scene of friendship today in the class πŸ™‚

IMG_6301

We already have plans for next week πŸ™‚ Will be reporting very soon πŸ™‚

ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class – Espectro Programming – 1 April 2017

Standard

We were still working on installing drivers, libraries and board for Espectro yesterday πŸ™‚ The beginning is always hard and tricky πŸ™‚

IMG_5853

Espectro has been running well on Mama Ren’s laptop, so yesterday they tried to make Espectro work on Ren’s laptop

IMG_5855

IMG_5889

We had a newcomer, Rafli πŸ™‚ He’d gone through all the steps, the only thing we hadn’t had time to figure out is Espectro configuration on Mac (we’ve done installation on several Mac’s but this one is a bit different)

IMG_5856

We also installed Minecraft and Spigot Server for the next class while waiting the Espectro libraries downloading

IMG_5888

Muhammad had successfully finished Espectro installation and configuration so he was on duty to help his friends πŸ™‚

IMG_5862

IMG_5890

Muhammad and Mama Ren helped Raul with the final steps of configuration

IMG_5857

Koosha and Dad realized they forgot to bring the Espectro, lucky that ProCodeCG has 2 Espectro πŸ™‚

Rafi (on the left) was downloading handout to execute final step of Espectro configuration

IMG_5858 2

A nice Saturday for tinkering like always πŸ™‚

IMG_5859

Hello Farrell πŸ™‚ He was back after a while and he also forgot to bring his Espectro and toolbox πŸ˜€

IMG_5860

So Farrell was doing some research about his sensor projects and a alsoΒ about Minecraft Modding

IMG_5863

IMG_5894

Capt. Reza was given different task: to create Knight Rider pattern with Espectro on board neopixel πŸ™‚

IMG_5861

IMG_5891

The folder where variants folder and boards.txt has to be copied to the other directory

IMG_5880

Rafi’s neopixel worked! πŸ™‚

IMG_5884 IMG_5886

All in all, we made progress with Espectro yesterday πŸ™‚ There were also new friendship in the class πŸ™‚

IMG_5893

Kids πŸ™‚ One day they hate each other the other day they play together LOL

IMG_5883

We’re going to explore more things with Espectro next week πŸ™‚ Don’t worry we will help kids who haven’t finished installation and configuration process πŸ™‚
