Student-run program that promotes coding concepts, languages, interactions and the development of apps using iOS Swift Playgrounds
Powered by ihub & founded by two DSBN Students, Danny Moutilika & Pranav Parakh, appCamp is a student-run program that promotes coding concepts, languages, interactions and the development of apps using iOS Swift Playgrounds. Students that register for this camp will get introduced to computer programming through Swift Playgrounds through accelerated lessons on Commands, Functions, Operators, Boolean Logic and many other topics.
To keep up in a world where everything seems like yesterday's news, having a fundamental understanding of technology is now as important as reading, writing and arithmetic. appCamp is a student-run program that promotes coding concepts, languages, interactions and the development of apps using iOS Swift Playgrounds
Our goal is to spark an interest in computer science and improve digital literacy in our community. We do this by teaching students the basics of programming in Swift, a common language used to develop applications (apps) in iOS (Apple) in a inclusive, peer-led environment.
We’ve recently updated this page with information about our Virtual appCamp. At this time, this sessional program will only be available for students with the Technical Requirements* available to support their learning from home.
This program is led by DSBN Student Facilitators, and the ihub Team.
*Technical Requirements: Access to an iPad running iOS 12 or higher or a Mac with macOS 10.15.3 or higher
Attendees will join our online classroom and learn the fundamentals of Commands, Functions, Operators, Boolean Logic, and more from Peer Facilitators. Between online sessions, students will have access to learning materials and are encouraged to learn at their own pace.
After you enroll in this program, you will…
