One of ProCodeCG Kids Coding Curriculum is to teach kids about IT and electronics, including Internet of Things 🙂
We always update our education materials and curriculum to provide kids with the most updated technology. That’s why we’re always doing research and educate ourselves to be able to deliver the knowledge to them 🙂
We are currently doing research on development boards, to see which one fits our curriculum.
These are (on breadboard) previous version of DyCodeX ESPectro and ProCodeCG LED Board), (on top left) Esspressif Board and (on top right) is Arduino Board.
Yesterday ProCodeCG joined a One Day ESPectro by DyCodeX
It was four of us: Budi Rahardjo (ProCodeCG Mentor), Marisa Paryasto (ProCodeCG CEO and Founder), Bernard Krisnandi Soetarman (ProCodeCG Kids Parent) and Clarence Soetarman (ProCodeCG Kids)
It’s us! 🙂
Getting ready. We brought ProCodeCG Arduino Kit because we’re going to add ESPectro board into it 🙂
The place, @DyPlex is a very nice place
Provided with coffee, snacks and fast internet connection 🙂
Before we started the workshop, DyCodeX formally gave the ESPectro boards to ProCodeCG
We have already ordered 10 ESPectro Core and 1 ESPectro Base 🙂
DyCode and DyCodeX CEO, Andri Yadi opened the workshop
(On the back) some crews of DyCodeX also joined the workshop 🙂
The instructor of the workshop, Ria (DyCodeX IoT Developer). She thought us how to get ESPectro Library from GitHub and copy them to our Arduino folders so we can compile and upload the code to our ESPectro Board
Andri Yadi showed us the features and details of the board. He explained about the design and how it works.
On the next session, Ali (DyCodeX IoT Developer) showed us how to make NeoPixel work and how to connect to MQTT
ESPectro Core works fine! It’s amazingly loaded with lots of features, including WiFi.
ESPectro Base offers much more. More GPIO’s, more sensors, more connections.
Prof. Budi Rahardjo explains to the rest of the class about the detail of MQTT connection code.
How our desk looked like 😀
We all were fully loaded with new amazing things! Including this ProCodeCG Kids. He tried all what he had done with Arduino to ESPectro Core 🙂
So we can say that ESPectro Core has gone through QC Test by ProCodeCG Kids and it passed 😉
Us after the workshop 🙂
And interview afterwards 🙂
Now we’re going to prepare for this event tomorrow!
