We use Mobile Apps every single day – Whatsapp, Instagram, Twitter, Mobile Banking, Truecaller and so many others. But how hard is it to MAKE our very own App? In this two day Think Camp, we dive in deep to learn how we can harness the power of our iOS and Android Smartphones and custom build our own functional apps.

What will Students Learn?

Layout Design

You will learn how to accurately select and position app components on a screen. We will work with buttons, sliders, pictures, check boxes, text-input fields and many other components.

App Coding & Logic

You will learn to create code in a simple drag-and-drop interface, allowing your app to do almost anything you can imagine.

Downloading & Installing Apps

You will be shown how to download and install the apps you create on your phone to test and show to your friends and family.
