App Development for Adults

This is a one-year internship program.

In this course, you will develop one or more real-world desktop applications that you can share with friends, family, and potential employers.

It’s a practical way to jumpstart a freelance career in coding, or simply to develop your own apps (or applets).

Some experience of coding may be required. The emphasis of the course will be to become familiar with an appropriate development environment (such as Flutter) and how to develop a self-contained app for the web or phone.

The platform and level of sophistication chosen will depend on your level of knowledge and expertise.

Suggested age range 16+.

English Program: The course will be conducted in English, but assistants will be available to translate into Thai if you don’t understand the instructor. Learning an interesting subject in English is a fun and very effective way to improve English comprehension.

Skills you will learn

  1. Be able to develop basic, standalone interactive Python applications that can accept, process, and output graphical elements.
  2. Apply basic logic and computational skills towards solving problems using the computer.
  3. Achieve a basic understanding of the Python programming language (coding syntax, control logic, data structures, etc) and how to apply them in developing various applications.
  4. Understanding and learning debugging strategies to make sure your apps are robust and easily maintainable.
Your instructor: Darrius

Darrius is accomplished web and app developer. He’s been developing the elegant but sophisticated Rapid Read Thai app.
