Last class for Youth APPLab

The last class for Youth APPLab, Thursday June 23 was probably my most memorable because it was the last class and after it ends nothing will be the same until the summer program starts. This experience on everybody was life changing and I wish I had more time to work with my classmates and better my understanding of the programs we used and didn’t get to. I know most people would agree that this class was and still is fun but there are some days that we have to be serious but even then it was still fun or it still will be fun because of the people involved in the program and how we go about it. Ms. Leshell and Mr. Marco are awesome teachers and they know a lot in the App field and to be able to learn  from them is a privilege. Though some people had some doubts on Mr. Marco’s occupation (they thought he was a spy) it was still fun to ponder on that and I still think people believe that. The volunteers helped as well in providing me with more knowledge as to what to do. All my classmates also helped though we had our moments where we put each other down or envied each other but it was in a crazy, funny way that always gave off a good vibe. We all got along there was no “beef” or issues between people there and we all had our own perspectives of the class, but mine is (special). I always had a technical problem on a regular basis, Ms. Leshell can disagree with that most times but it reigned true recently when it showed off its “special ways”. For instance the sound cut off for a good hour and I asked Afia ( she usually helped me with concepts I didn’t completely get in App Inventor if Ms. Leshell was helping somebody else out. ) if she could fix it and she tried but to no avail. Then I called Ms. Leshell when she had finished helping the person she had worked with while Afia helped me and that didn’t work either, until I closed out everything and opened it all back up again that the sound started to work but  I had tried multiple times before it really began to work. Also with my computer one of the speakers blew on my headphones I used to use, (so being the “special” computer it is ), the speaker that blew on my headphones, on that side, the computer started to vocalize whatever I was listening to at that moment. So strangely my computer plays music from the left speaker when a headphone jack is in and on headphones it has to play on the right otherwise people will hear whatever I am hearing at the moment.

P.S. I will probably add to this just not at the moment so if anybody asks if this is all I wrote, say “not for long”.

P.S.S. DUSCES!!! PEACE!!! ABOVE THE INFLUENCE!!! YELLOW 🙂 (SMILEY FACE)!!! LOL!!! ROFL!!! HAGS!!! LLLCFFPP!!!!!!!!! (laugh out loud, rolling on [the] floor laughing, have a great summer, and LAUGHING LIKE LAZY CRAZY FEELING FAT PROCRASTINATING PEOPLE!!!)


First week back from spring break

My first week back from spring break has sky rocketed its way up but so far I am enjoying the work that is given to me especially when it is math related. Our latest homework is to make an algorithm for the apps we are making for the android market and it can be tricky depending on how you look at it. For me the challenge is figuring out the format of how I want to make it but besides that once I figure it out it won’t take me too long to make one. I will eventually but until then I might stress myself out when really it is easier than I believe it to be.

Black Girl Gamers Article…

In the article forwarded to this post she is saying that by introducing the future black women to gaming you could change how they look at technology because the black girls at this day and age on average have no idea how to do most of the things in everyday life involving technology. For example, they might not know where to plug in their cable for the XBOX 360 visual and every time they want something done involving technology the ask their man to do it for them. By introducing them to technology they will also have a new interest and now that technology is evolving they need their own form of evolution through exposure to technology but in particular gaming. This exposure could produce more black women in the field of gaming and in this field you get paid a lot seeing as though most parents want their black daughter to go into nursing or law which is more practical. This evolution would produce even more interest in technology overall which would introduce new information that your average black women wouldn’t know but might be interested in. All of these things and more just give you more incentive to let your black daughter try these new experiences you were unfamiliar with and let her try her luck at the world of gaming and technology that lies in front of her.
