Day 5-Camp Highlights

Today we learnt a very interesting field in computer science and engineering which is Mobile applications development. Mr Sameer has a very good approach in teaching. He taught us how to create the layout for an app, such as the buttons, background image, location sensors and much more. After we were done with the layout of the app, Ms Praveena has taught us how to use the blocks in order for the app to function. She taught us how to locate a car and navigate to it, find nearby parking and how to display the longitude and latitude of the car and display them on the first screen on the app. This lecture was very fun and interactive, and the topic was very exciting.

This is the layout of the app that will appear once you open the app.

These are the blocks of code created to show the longitude and latitude of the parked car.

These are the block of codes to locate your car on the map. Two markers will also appear to indicate your current location and the location of your car.

These are the block of codes to find a path to the car.

These are the block of codes to find nearby parking.
