AppDev survey

Please share your impression of this course so far.

The main focus of this course is:

  • an introduction to programming focused on (quickly) building prototypes
  • a mixture of (module-level) electronics and software prototyping

With ‘module-level’ we mean application of modules and parts to quickly build prototypes
without the basics of electronics (that is part of the electronics course).

In the last lecture, two learning methods where mentioned:

  1. The often seen as ‘ideal’ way: step-by-step learning the basics, gradually increase complexity.
  2. Learn-by-example as done for this course: learn basics mixed with advanced examples (sometimes called throw in the deep method)

Why is this done in this way? You must deliver a prototype in under 10 weeks. The IDE program has no room for an introduction to programming. How to solve this? Learn more about the basics by self-study (those 2 hours a week mentioned in lecture 1).

About educational tools used

As you might have noticed, for Application Development we use some different tools than other courses. The main differences are:

  • Most educational material is offered on a separate website
  • We use a (website) chat for ‘live’ (quick) support
  • We use a forum for offline (slow) support
