I’ve resumed teaching high school CS full-time, but I am also now working towards an advanced certificate in web and mobile applications development.
I was perhaps a little overzealous and enrolled in too many interesting classes initially:
- Linear Algebra (this wasn’t required for my CS degree, but a lot of grad CS courses require it, if I choose to go on to a Masters/PhD)
- Advanced Web Frameworks (part of the web and mobile applications program)
- Android Development (a free course through CodePath)
- iOS Development (another free course through CodePath)
I have decided to drop the linear algebra course since it is the only one that requires specific meet times, which made things a bit challenging since the course meets right after I finish teaching, when my brain was ready for a nap.
Here’s the first Android assignment I’ve completed, Flixter. It uses NYT’s Movie API to populate a TableView with information fetched from a query.
You can find more details about the app and its source code on Github!
We also did the Flixter assignment in the iOS class using Swift:
