This website is still under construction, but you can preview some of the technology that we will be using by following the links below.
Our current workshop agenda can be found here.
Day 1 Links
Trinket.io is a website that allows for the implementation of python scripts that can shared and tested online. Python is an excellent choice for a beginning language. We have an established account (nycctmath) that can be used to share our own code with students.
App Inventor 2 allows for the creation of apps (using any modern browser) using blocks. This is similar to App Lab, but it creates native apps (only for Android).
Twitter is a popular social app. We will use some special python modules to study the Twitter stream.
An activity introducing students to the concept of algorithms can be found here. Students can practice writing programs that other humans can follow. This activity only requires only graph paper to implement.
Day 2 Links
The python library is a great resource to find information whenever you are stuck. The quick search tool if very useful.
Day 3 Links
Dictionary for cryptography.
Day 4 Links
An interesting scientific paper on PINs.
Some useful bits of code/information:
