Target: Students and teachers of primary and secondary schools

Format: Online Workshop


In this workshop you will be introduced to extend your App Inventor coding environment to interface with an external Micro:bit device. It gives you a basic sense of the Internet of Things (IoT). The workshop covers:

  1. Prepare to use a Micro:bit device
  2. Extend your App Inventor project
  3. Connect a Micro:bit in your app
  4. Understand accelerometer data of a Micro:bit
  5. Use hardware buttons on a Micro:bit


Join the Workshop in the 'Developing Android Apps with App Inventor' online course




Code2App Webinar



Imagine what your App could do if it can recognize your face. Artificial Intelligence (AI) can also tell what your current emotion is. Moving your App data to the cloud can make your data persistent across platforms and sharable between users. In this webinar we will demonstrate some advanced usage of App Inventor by empowering an App with AI and cloud database. 

Remark: You are not required to write any code during this webinar. Hands-on practice will be taught in advanced workshop.
