Building Apps and Games Even If You Can’t Program At All

Presented by: Stephen Howell

Would you like to make an app for your school but can’t program? Want to make a game but don’t know where to start? Come to this workshop and I’ll show you how to make a mobile app, a desktop app and a 3D game. CoderDojo kids, Transition Year students and non-coders have all published apps using the technology we’ll be using, and if they could do it, so can you, no excuses. This workshop will assume you know absolutely nothing about computer programming, not even introductory Scratch.
