HTML5 Programming Class

May 4

My brother(Larry) and I created and taught a 6th grade early morning programming class once a week from January to the end of April. The class was at Brookwood Elementary’s computer lab. He did the administrative work and I prepared and taught the class.  The students were very smart. We were amazed that we have full attendance almost every session at 7 am.  We used lessons from code.org, but most were too easy for them, most of which were visual programming.  I then created lesson plans for the students to code using javascript / html5.  We created simple “choose your own adventures” and a knock off of Flappy birds called Flappy ball.  We used jsbin.com as our editor. This allow the students to take their work home with them with out even loging in. jsbin.com lets you branch of any other project and in the case of this class they branched off the lessons.  This also allow them to learn a real language, quickly produce results, and show off their work to their peers with a simple url. We also used www.khanacademy.org.

We plan on teaching the class again next year. We are in the process of getting a larger computer lab, or multiple labs, set up at the middle school.

Chess Club Tournament

Apr 30

The tournament software is a web based and mobile optimized North Face Sale n Yorkshire solution needed for our growing tournaments. After volunteering to run the pairings and scoring for local grade school chess club tournaments, we ran into multiple bottlenecks. We tried different open source softwares and none could support larger groups than 50 without delaying the tournaments timeline even with multiple scorekeepers. I designed a web based solution designed for mobile and tables that allows multiple scorekeepers to enter scores at the same time. The software allows for quick corrections by coaches and exception without halting the full tournament. The parents could also see their children’s scores win real time. We have ran multiple tournaments with 200+ students all of which ended on time or a head15 far portlandhallhotel of schedule all paperless and without cables. All registration, scorekeeping and pairing were done on mobile devices or tablets. Other tournament software were limit in the pairing algorithm. The new system took into account grade, school, previously played opponents, and ELO ranking. All the weights can be adjusted on the fly as seen fit by the coaches. Once pairing are created, the students start finding their next table, often even before we announce a new round.

Comments found on other websites

I am not surprised at all that Frog Log won the hearts of my fellow judges and the Grand Prize. It’s a good idea that makes you smile when you first put your hand on it, packed with functionality and a great showcase of what you can do with a few lines of HTML5.

Interesting detail: the author won a second prize last year with a Silverlight application. This proves that a great developer is great independent of the technology he actually uses.

Just a great little game, addictive and well thought out with some interesting gameplay. I would LOVE to see this developed further by the author… My only ding was that drag-n-drop failed in Firefox 3.5; clicking worked fine, though.
