3. What you like to know more?

You may also enter your enquiries if you 'hit' any problem along the way... or help others in the class if you know how to resolve the 'problem' posted :)

Remember: Identify yourself when you post your comments.

  1. 1) I have learnt how to program certain basic iPhone applications
    2) We got to learn some basic programming which could be useful in the future
    3) We should not have taken up so much time doing this programming as we should have been focusing on our examination preparations
    4) I would like to carry out this activity but only during a certain period of time not close to any examination

  2. 1)I have learnt how to create codes for apps that can be used in the iPhone and ensure that it works.
    2)I like the feeling of seeing that my app that I have created is able to work. I also like the pace of the learning as I feel that it is not too rush nor too slow.
    3)I feel that the lesson could be more fun if there are a few game based activity so that the lesson will be engaging and fun.
    4)Yes, I would like to carry on with the next level of programming workshops in the near future as I feel that it is an additional skill that I have learnt and pick up. I personally do not think that other of my ex-classmates have this skill in their current secondary school.

  3. 1) How to make simple programs using xcode and interface builders.

    2) I like the training as it helps me understand how iphone apps work.

    3) We could have learnt more about games designing.

    4) Yes, as I think it is a good learning experience. But if I have other commitments that are more important, then maybe not.

  4. 1)How to make simple interfaces and programs.
    2)It is nice when we see our app working.
    3)It was long, boring, copying from the teacher and i didn't really understand a lot.
    4)Not on xcode because it is boring. I would rather use something like Warcraft Map builder.

    3) It should not be for such a long time. It gets quite boring.

    4) No, I do not really have an interest to do programming.

  7. 1)I have learnt how the whole iPhone programming works from the interface builder to Xcode, it is really different from programs like flash and game maker.
    2)I liked the satisfaction of a finished working app, and how they actually work.
    3)We could have learnt how to create our own custom made templates for the app.
    4)Yes because it was really interesting and we could cover more stuff.

  8. 1)I have learnt how to create codes for simple apps that can be used in the iPhone.
    2)I like the feeling of seeing that my app that I have created is able to work as it makes me feel that I succeeded.
    3)I feel that we should make some apps that will attract the younger generation(teenagers)by making games.
    4)Yes, I would like to carry on with the next level of programming workshops but not so near the exams.

  9. 1. I learnt how the Iphone apps work and a brief outline on how to program some easy apps.
    2. I could program things which can be used to impress my family and also I can give it to my brother next time when he have his Iphone.
    3. Have a longer period of teaching us on how to program
    4. Yes, it is a very interesting topic to learn about and we will therefore be able to program other things that could be useful in the future.

  10. 1) i have found out how the professional app programming industry works...
    2)I was surprised that my app actually worked without guidance because the instructions were clear.
    3)not really...except for the ability to make use of the gyroscope in the iphone, and animations.
    4)definitely

    1) I have learnt how to program an app to view images and to switch from pages and to scroll on the full view of a larger image.
    2) I like that the lesson was easy to understand as all the terms were explained to us.
    3) I think that Mr Pong could slow down a little in his typing sometimes as I can catchup in typing the codes.
    4) Yes, I want to be able to program more sophisticated and complex apps that would be able to do more functions.

  13. I have learnt to create a simple application.

    I like that I learnt new things and the satisfaction of finishing a working app.

    We could learn how current popular applications like Tap Tap Revenge works.

    Yes. It is a good opportunities to upgrade myself.

  14. 1. Briefly describe what you have learnt in the 4 sessions of basic programming.
    I learnt many things about programming, and also a bit about the iPhone, something that I do not have the chance to have. I learnt thing like how to change the text in the iPhone at a touch of a button, how to change the text into something else and changing it back. I also learnt how make a calculator for things like BMI and student grades calculator.
    2. Share 1-2 things you like about the training.
    I like how me and my friends help each other when we have errors that we are not supposed to have.
    3. Highlight 1-2 things that you think could be further improved.
    The instructor could have told us how to edit the window, and not go too fast, as people with errors had to spend time correcting them, and would be lost after that.
    4. Would you like to carry on with the next level of programming workshops in the near future? Why?
    No, as i am not that interested in programming. I feel that it is difficult to remember all the different ways, like what to do to embed pictures in an application.

  15. 1.I have learnt about how to use X-Code and some simple codes which are used to program applications.

    2. I like learning something new, and also in the process of programming, I gained satisfaction from creating something.

    3. The lessons could be extended because only simple codes were taught. There could also be challenges to make our own apps with the knowledge we had gained.

    4. Yes. I am interested in programming. I want to learn more about application programming.

  16. 1) I have learnt how to create simple iPhone applications.
    2) I feel the sense of accomplishment when I have a working iPhone app.
    3) Maybe he could explain to us how it works and go even more slowly.
    4) Yes, I will like to learn more about programming.

  17. 1a) how to create buttons that changes the text in a box

    1b) how to create buttons that changes the text in a box in a certain sequence

    1c) how to insert pictures to apps

    1d) how to carry out mathematical calculation through an app






    2) It feels great when my codes work successfully on my first attempt and when I can solve my mistakes without the help of my instructor




    4) Yes as this program is fun entertaining and is easily learnt

  18. 1) I learnt how to do some simple XCode programming and how to make simple iphone apps to be tested in the iphone simulator.

    2) I liked testing the program I made through the iphone simulator, and making the programming.

    3) The ICT teachers should have some training beforehand so that they can also help us with the programming and errors, instead of only Mr. Pong to help us.

    4) I would like to continue as it has been very interesting and fun programming, so I would like to continue with it.
