Tinkering with Mobile Apps II

About the Camp

Over 5 days, this commuter program will extend skills and knowledge gained from Tinkering with Mobile Apps I and show students the basics of building connected apps. These apps will use databases to request and exchange data, connect to other applications to share information and functionality, use web API (Application Programming Interfaces) to share and collect data to and from the internet, and investigate third-party extensions to explore a world of possibilities. The final day of the program will feature a Design Expo where students get to show off all the cool apps they made!

Key Features

  • Full days of interactive learning
  • Learn how to build your own mobile app
