Hour of Code Report

In a word document, provide the following:

Choose one activity (tutorial) that you worked on in class and…

1. Which one was it?

~ Flappy Code.

2. In a couple of paragraphs, outline what you created and what you learned.

~ I “created” a variation of the flappy bird game using Scratch blocks with tutorials helping me to finish certain aspects of the game. Like the real game I made the small flapping bird fly slightly higher with every click and check for collisions with the ground and pipes. I also created a Scoreboard with blocks which incremented at every time that the bird passed through a set of pipes unharmed. The game was also enjoyable in the sense that edits were allowed to be made after the tutorial was over which would help children in the aspect of exploration of coding concepts. They can now see the joy of code in these minigames and explore more intricate code in the future.

~ I learned that children can be easily invoked into a future in interest in computer programming just by displaying their current interests in forms which they find amusing.

3. This webpage will stay online indefinitely, what other tutorial that you would like to look into?

~ I personally have no interest in any other tutorial if any of them resemble the one that I completed today, however, I may be interested in perhaps creating a tutorial or recommending one to younger people.

Value: 3 marks added to the next…...

The Brief

...Hello my fellow viewers. How are you all? I hope that this live feed finds you in the best of your vigor and life. Well friends, I scrupulously thought about this long and hard and I just could not find any other way to break this perplexing and saddening broadcast to you. You don’t have big flappy ears, an elongated trunk or a tail and neither are you accomplished enough to fly. So forget the idea of swaying the opposite sex that way. Being fat is only bearable till the age of five. After that you just become a fat blob having imaginary friends. It is time that you wake up and smell the coffee and get real. Embrace the fact that you are a lazy, good-for-nothing person who has nothing better to than sit around all day, eating and pitying yourself. However, you my friends, still have a shot at getting a life. I can say this because it’s a “been there done that” case with me. I have recuperated myself from a juncture where most people would give up. And today, after 450 pounds less, I implore you to take a look at yourself and end your morbid and seedy existence. I am not saying that you go and jump to your demise but rather, improve your health. All those hotdogs, hamburgers, double cheese burgers, nachos, burritos, pizzas, fries and chips will not help you. I KNOW what you want. You want a good job, a beautiful domicile, a 6 digit salary, a beautiful and extremely attractive wife with a couple of dozen “inamoratas” or girlfriends-if you will, on top. This is the suite we......

...been given. What about the right hand? A good question, as there's no avail in learning chords without producing any sound. There's two things you can do with your right hand (in terms of playing chords): strumming and finger picking. 1) Strumming Strumming is a technique in which you play the notes of a guitar chord (almost) simultaneously by stroking the strings with a pick or with your finger. Using your finger sounds the warmest in my opinion. Use the nail of you index finger to strum the strings. Support your index finger with your thumb. A guitar pick produces a clear sound with a lot of treble in it.  The hardness of the pick is important: a very hard pick can make your sound too harsh while a very soft pick produces a 'flappy' sound. A medium thickness gives the best results for strumming.  You can use a lot of different rhythms for strumming. Let me give you some basic examples of guitar strumming patterns: Keep the strumming very simple in the beginning with this technique called four to the bar. Start counting from 1 to 4 and strum the chord on every count with a downstroke.  A down stroke means you stroke from the thickest to the skinniest string with a pick or your finger. Make sure you play only the strings that are marked with a black or white dot (on the chord diagram).  Failing to do this will make your chord sound bad. In music notation it looks like this: Rhythms are written between 2 vertical lines (bar......

...it was a complete shock when Tommy came to a dead halt, wheeled round and stared at Laura with a face like thunder. We all stopped too—the boys looking as bewildered as we were—and for a few seconds I thought Tommy was going to blow for the first time in years. But then he abruptly stalked off, leaving us all swapping looks and shrugging. Nearly as bad was the time I showed him Patricia C.’s calendar. Patricia was two years below us but everyone was in awe of her drawing skills, and her stuff was always sought after at the Art Exchanges. I’d been particularly pleased with the calendar, which I’d managed to get at the last Exchange, because word had been going round about it from weeks before. It wasn’t anything like, say, Miss Emily’s flappy colour calendars of the English counties. Patricia’s calendar was tiny and dumpy, and for each month there was a stunning little pencil sketch of a scene from Hailsham life. I wish I still had it now, especially since in some of the pictures—like the ones for June and for September—you can make out the faces of particular students and guardians. It’s one of the things I lost when I left the Cottages, when my mind was elsewhere and I wasn’t being so careful what I took with me—but I’ll come to all that in its place. My point now is that Patricia’s calendar was a real catch, I was proud of it, and that’s why I wanted to show it to Tommy. I’d spotted him standing in the late afternoon sunshine beside the big sycamore near the South......

From the success that we can educe lessons for themselves. I. INTRODUCTION 1. About Flappy Bird Flappy Bird is a mobile game actually launched in May of 2013, developed by Vietnam-based developer Nguyen Ha Dong and published by GEARS Studio, a small, independent game developer also based in Vietnam. The game has a side-scrolling format and the player controls a bird, attempting to fly between rows of green pipes without coming into contact with them (Wiki information).

...schools especially the ones that are owned by companies, including this one *coughs*, only want our money. They don’t care about how difficult exams are. They don’t care about how some professors are evil to the core. It’s just plain business. Believe me. After all, this is not my first school. “Again, thank you and welcome to International School of Arts. Feel free to visit our different school organizations to their booths.” she claps her hands and then points us to a huge door. I didn’t hear telling her name because I was too busy playing flappy bird at my phone, stupid bird. Sometimes I question myself if this flappy bird is a cartoon bird or a fly. Seriously, it looks like a fly with lips like Angelina Jolie’s. By looking at her short silver wavy hair and I assume she’s at her sixties, I bet she’s the president of this school. Everyone claps after the president’s welcome speech except me. I can’t clap. I’m still playing flappy bird. YES! Keeping my phone after beating my last score, I head towards the school field wherein colourful booths are placed. Okay…let’s see. I check out the first booth that I see. It says “United Readers Org.”. It’s kind of lame because I’m not a fan of books. I only read books when it has illustrations. “Hi! What’s your name?” a blonde heading towards me wearing a white t-shirt with a logo of an open book. It has three letters, U.R.O, indicating that she’s a book club member. “Jeff…I’m Jeff.” I show her my new i.d. “Hello......

Light Post

...Life and Death of Flappy Bird February 10,2014 I was late to the Flappy Bird party. I only started playing the annoyingly compulsive chart-topping game on Friday morning because we were featuring it in a discussion about the games business on our new weekly radio programme Tech Tent. But after a couple of hours I, like members of my family, colleagues and just about everyone else, was hooked. It was the crudest game imaginable, with graphics that might have been created 25 years ago. You tap continually on the screen to keep a bird from flapping into a series of pipes. But it was the fact that it was so darned hard that made it addictive - and so lucrative for its developer. Then on Saturday the Vietnamese inventor of the game Dong Nguyen tweeted this: "I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users, 22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down. I cannot take this anymore." It wasn't clear exactly what he couldn't take any more - after all, he had earlier said he was earning $50,000 (£30,467) a day from the adverts that appeared on the free game. But by Sunday night, true to his word, he had removed Flappy Bird from the Google Play store and from Apple's App Store. If you have just heard about the game and want to play it, tough - it is now only available to the hundreds of thousands, or probably millions who've already installed it. What can we learn from Flappy Bird's brief......

Two unique features that add value to OAMs, I think will include more secure payment systems and reliable ordering. EBay has been uniquely able to partner up with Banks like Wells Fargo to enhance their payment processing system. For a global payment method, PayPal has always been an integral part of eBay. EBay is a registered online business model unlike other unregulated websites. It features real product and real seller on the other end. EBay never hesitates to take the accounts down if they detect suspicious activities. An example of this is when “flappy bird” was taken down, many people tried to sell their phones on eBay using a high price tag. EBay acted out in a matter of hours blocking several accounts and warning many.

...June. Accessed July 13, 2014. http://www.pamf.org/parenting-teens/general/media-web/violentgames.html. Thesis: This thesis is based on the impact of violent usage of video games by individuals which is in relation to one’s aggressive behaviour. Summary (including in-text reference): Researchers have conducted examinations on people based on their behaviour whilst making use of violent and non-violent games and their notion sways on both ways. They have come to an idea that it relates to three types of reactions which are cognition, affect and arousal. Cognitive relating to one’s thinking and reasoning is tied to violent game being played. Frustration can be analysed in individuals even while playing non-violent games like flappy bird for example, a simple game but with high level of frustration created (Bushman and Anderson 2001). In connection to cognitive behaviour, exciting non-violent games increases arousal creating aggressive thoughts and this encourages long term aggressive knowledge structures. Non-violent games that tend to cause frustration can increase aggressive feelings and thoughts which also indirectly links to cognition (Bushman and Anderson 2001). One common scenario that was agreed upon by many studies was that long exposure to violent video games with behavioural scripts getting fed into the brain causes aggressiveness. According to a national survey from Pew Internet and American Life Project, they have found that the youth have......

Flappy Bird's Now Officially Game over

...Flappy Bird’s now officially Game Over Have you seen the bird with thick lips, which looks really heavy, that can’t fly on its own? Tap to flap was its line to be able to go through the spaces of the tubes from above and below. That game which has a weird looking bird that keeps on making people curse themselves when it got itself bumped with the tubes, is called the Flappy Bird. In May, Dong Nguyen uploaded a new game to the iOS App Store. It was just one of the hundreds of apps added to Apple’s iTunes marketplace each day. Nguyen had created a simple game in which the player controls a funny-looking bird by tapping the screen, and it needed a simple name. He called it Flap Flap, until he realized another app had the same title. Luckily, developing and updating games on the App Store is such a fast, iterative process that he was able to quickly retitle it Flappy Bird. Perhaps you’ve heard of it. This game was very common to most teenagers where in they waste time just to be in high score. It was very viral that became the next Angry Birds and next Temple Run. Months after he released it, Flappy Bird shot to the top of the charts, drawing even more players, which made it even more popular, which drew in even more players. Millions of people were downloading Flappy Bird at its peak, and Nguyen was raking in $50,000 a day from the pop-up ads that appeared during gameplay. The concept of the game is just very simple: You tap the screen to make the bird fly, release to...

...release of Halo 2 it would go on to be the most played game on ‘Xbox Live’ for the next 2 years [6]. With these trends continuing to this day I would highly recommend Mr. Wilkinson begin development on a FPS that is similar to these franchises. * Long-Term Strategy (2007-2015): 1. Mobile Games: In the long run Mr. Wilkinson would be wise to create a team to begin working on developing games for mobile platforms to be sold through digital distribution platforms. By 2016 the mobile gaming revenue in the U.S alone is expected to reach 3.31 billion dollars [7]. Mobile games are relatively cheap to develop in comparison to console games and can still generate large amounts of revenue for a company. For example the game “Flappy Bird” was developed in 2 to 3 days and at its height of success was earning $50,000 a day through ad revenue and purchases [8]. “Freemium” games such as “Clash of Clans” that are strictly online multiplayer have found tremendous success in the market, by offering the main game free for download and making available in-app purchases for real money ($1.56Million in revenue a day) [9]. I believe this is the future of gaming for casual gamers and will allow the company to reach an untapped market before anyone else does. 2. Digital Distribution Platforms: The fact that digital distribution platforms are being used more and more to release games, I’d recommend that Mr. Wilkinson continue focusing on developing games more so then......

...national curriculum at the same time. After looking at several different arcade games, I wanted to create a game like pacman due to the fact it is very simple to use and allows children to play the game without having a fear of being of not winning. According to (Pacxon, 2011), the most successful games are easily understandable and draw people in because they feel they can play without looking stupid. The principle of Pacman is similar in that it is a simple game which players want to try, and feel because it is so straightforward they have a realistic chance of winning. One game that was so successful was flappy bird; the game was really easy to play and also simple to understand. The app made it to the number one spot on the Ios App store hence showing that even simple game play can be successful. “interface is initially judged to be simple, as in the design of the Flappy Bird first interaction sequence, it is likely that those who have experienced this impression continue to believe that the game is in fact simple” CHFP, C.M.L. (2014) 6 Why games on a computer are better? The reason I will be developing my game for a computer platform is mainly for the fact that computers are available in every school in the country, so even if children don’t have access to a computer at home they will be able to access the game elsewhere e.g. school, library. It is cheaper to buy a personal computer than other platforms, computer prices have declined and you can now get......

Do you understand?” Dafydd shouted something that nobody could understand, kicked Barney on the ankles, wrenched his hands away, and was out of the caravan like a streak of lightning, yelling for Waddle. “Well - what do you think of that?” said Barney to the others. “I vote we keep our caravan locked when we’re out anywhere. What a little rascal!” “His mother ought to keep him in order,” said Miss Pepper. “A few good slaps would do him a world of good. Taking that comb right under our noses! We’d better keep our room locked too, Diana, when we’re out. Ah, here comes Miranda, looking pleased with herself!” Miranda did feel pleased with herself. She had put that flappy goose in its place! She had ridden on its back all the way to the cow-shed a little way up the hill, the goose cackling at the top of its voice. “You’d better behave yourself, Miranda,” said Diana, “or Dafydd will be after you! Him and his precious goose! What a pair!” “Well, the goose will have to mind its p’s and q’s when Snubby comes with Loony,” said Barney. “I can’t see either of them putting up with Dafydd and Waddle for long, if they don’t behave themselves.” “You two boys will be quite comfortable in the caravan at nights,” said Miss Pepper. “The bunks are very good.
