STEM Summer Camp 2014 Highlights

Build an App and Video Game Design Workshops

Doris Chen teaching

Students got plenty of hands-on experience developing apps. They heard technical talks and and saw demos by Microsoft. Doris Chen, a Microsoft developer evangelist, was especially eye-opening to the students, many of whom thought that creating world-class apps was beyond their abilities.

"Many students attended the workshop wanting to develop Android apps, but Doris's presentation/demo of HTML5 and the ease with which an app could be put together using some of the free open-source technologies demonstrated by her turned many of them around." said Anand Venkataraman, Foothill Computer Science faculty and instructor of the Build-An-App workshop.
