Week 4 Live Session is on Monday, 30 January, 19.00- 20.00 GMT. More information on the Live Sessions page.


Here are some useful tutorials to get you started 


  • Learning Apps - Choose the language of the tutorial by clicking the flag in the upper right-hand corner. And here is just one example of a possible exercise for inspiration.

 The easiest way to start with this tool is browsing apps of other people, choosing one you like and then clicking the button Create similar app. Then you erase the content and leave just the template of the exercise. You need to create your account to do that, of course.
