Setup

Second Screen

The course is designed that you are with your cell phone in front of a second screen. This second screen is optimally a tablet or a monitor. With this setup you can watch the walkthrough videos and program on your phone at the same time. In the following image this setup is shown. 

Of course you can do it with just your phone, but then you have to switch between Pocket Code and the workshop website many times. If this is no problem for you, let´s go!

Installation of Pocket Code and Pocket Paint

If you've already installed Pocket Code and Pocket Paint on your phone, skip this paragraph. If not, search for them in the Google Play Store or watch the following videos for more guidance.

Introduce yourself via the course map

Here we have a really cool thing. We would be delighted and also the other participants if you would introduce yourself via our participant map. Simply add a pin on the map at your location with your name and a brief description of yourself. Of course you do not have  to pin your exact location, just choose the main square of your city or a famous landmark in your area. Also we are introducing us to you through this map, so be a visible member of the Pocket Code community.
