A week of coding, app-making and fun has been happening at Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC). Young people aged 8-18 have been designing and making their own apps - with the help of mentors - at the Rewired State Festival of Code. They will all be off to Plymouth University on Friday 31st July for the weekend to present their apps to a team of judges - we wish them luck.
App developers 500 More are trialling their new walking wellbeing app 'Walking Safari' with the staff at KWMC. Hopefully it will boost our walking meetings and get some fun competition going amongst staff. I'm happy to say that I am at the top of the leaderboard!
This week young people are enjoying a week of coding, app-making and fun. Designing and making their own app – mentors on hand to help them. From Monday to Thursday they are making and coding at KWMC; from Friday to Sunday they'll be at Plymouth University presenting their apps to a team of judges!
The app allows groups of people to shoot films from many angles at once using their mobile phones. The shots then all go to a web page where you can shuffle them around like tiles. It's called Nth Screen and is being developed by Tim Kindberg at Pervasive Media Studio at Watershed on Bristol Harbourside. I made Nth Bird a film if many birds singing in a tree all at once.
You can drop in and have a look at the Pervasive Media Studio any Friday afternoon.
Second day with IES Cities project partners discussing city apps. Other cities we are working with are Majadhonda, Rovereto and Zaragoza. Bristol's apps are MyBristol and Democratree. More info about how you get involved using the apps soon!
