Programming Mobile Apps

As the number of mobile phone users grows exponentially year after year, we now awaken to a world that is increasingly accessed, run and driven by mobile. In this course, Code Campers will learn how to use the JavaScipt framework React Native developed by Facebook to create performant mobile apps that can be delivered to both iOS and Android phones, giving them a global platform upon which to showcase their digital creations.

Code Campers will learn how to utilise JavaScript tools that access information on the web, create beautiful user interfaces, build databases that store the data consumed by their apps and deploy their creations into the mobile app marketplace.

Frequently Asked Questions

“Coding” is synonymous with “programming”. It refers to the art of writing computer code, which are instructions that a computer can follow to solve problems. Practically every facet of technology that we encounter in our daily lives - from online banking systems to video games on our iPhone, from the GPS systems we rely on navigation to the security systems that protect our homes and offices, is created from code.

Communicating with a computer requires the use of a language, just like how communicating with another human being involves the use of a language like English or Korean. The difference is that writing code for a computer in a particular language is a little like speaking to somebody who is absolutely particular about grammar and punctuation - any deviation from a language’s rules results in a computer not being able to accept the programmed instructions. Different computer languages are well-suited to doing different tasks. For example, JavaScript is the undisputed lingua franca of the web, LISP is used extensively by NASA and in Artificial intelligence research while C and FORTRAN finds its adherents in high finance especially in the field of high frequency trading.

Python is one of the world's most popular languages (consistently ranked within the Top 10 in recent years by Tiobe) that is known for its learner-friendly syntax, versatility and ubiquity in the workplace. It is also a language that most of our instructors have had the pleasure of using in the workplace. In addition, students and parents might be interested to know that Computing will be available as an examinable subject for the Singapore "O" levels beginning in 2017 and Python will be the language taught in the curriculum.
