About AppCamp

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. Once students have mastered these skills, they will be guided through the process of creating their own App!

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.

What will attendees do?

By enrolling in one of our sessions, you will learn Commands, Functions, Operators, Boolean Logic, and many other topics. Once you've mastered these skills, we'll guide you to help create your very own app! Attendees will test… discuss.. Explore…

Cost

The cost to participate in AppCamp ranges from $60 - $100 depends on the program. We charge minimal fees to help us facilitate future sessions. Financial assistance is available!
