ProCodeCG codeMeetUp() #57 – 15 Feb 2016 – Science and Technology for Astronomy


Today we have an astronomy communicator and founder of langitselatan, Avivah Yamani shares about “Science and Technology for Astronomy” πŸ™‚


Astronomy is a very interesting discipline. It starts from the earth


to millions of galaxies..


That leaves one big question unanswered.


It is interesting to see astronomy on the past


compared with astrology


to the astronomy today


Astronomy is very useful to learn other subjects and disciplines


It can be collaborated with anything


langitselatan was established based on these facts


Started with Centaur on 2005, langitselatan is surviving until today


langitselatan uses new media to communicate astronomy to the world


It also implements astronomy in the real world


e-book and games are some products created by langitselatan to implement and communicate astronomy to people.


The effectivity of langitselatan


The audience πŸ˜‰


Some statisticsΒ to describe the profile of langitselatan


Some of langitselatan projects


And we are also informed about the upcoming total solar eclipse πŸ™‚


in details!


langitselatan also takes role in education society πŸ™‚


but sure, with lots of challenges to overcome


Wow, we also learn how eclipses happen in some period of time πŸ™‚


And this is us! A bunch of happy galaxies making a constellation of a happy universe πŸ˜‰


ProCodeCG Kids Regular Coding Class 16 Jan 2016 – Creating Apps


Today we continue working on our client-server code in Python, login password in Scratch, countdown to 2015 code in Python and creating apps with App Inventor! πŸ˜‰

This is Farrell demonstrating his solar system’s orbit code in Python πŸ˜‰ The code use real data from NASA and it is really interesting to see the track of each planets based on their speed and Astronomical Unit (AU). The code use Python turtle library to draw the trajectory πŸ˜‰


Faris is working on his Android Studio and Malik is debugging his Python client-server code.


Reza, on the corner has created his own counter with start and stop button, and he had created some apps with Apps Inventor before so it is easy for him to follow the class today πŸ™‚

We have a new student today, Aliyah, the girl on the back with stripes shirt, is waiting for her emulator loading πŸ™‚


We have a little company leading the class today! πŸ˜€


How cute! πŸ˜‰ ❀


Today we create one button and one image with App Inventor. We will set the image to be invisible.

When the button is clicked, the image will be visible πŸ™‚ The coding is using Blockly πŸ™‚

After the code is finished, we build the project.

And then connect it to the Android Emulator (should be downloaded and installed first. And the computer should be restarted).

If there is any emulator updates then before running the project, it will download the update first.

This is the emulator

And there we go! We have it running! πŸ˜‰

The problem with App Inventor that it needs a stable and fast internet connection. The connection and loading process is so slow, we should do something else to wait until it displays our project on the simulator. Hopefully we can figure out how to make it work smoothly because today some computers cannot be installed with the emulator and the ones with emulator installed took hundred years for the emulator to show up.

We will work on it next week! πŸ™‚
