Have you been thinking about building an awesome app? An app where you can share your interests with the world and pull in content from Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and more? In this workshop we’ll learn about App Studio. This free, online app creation tool that allows you to quickly build websites and windows apps to publish, test, and share. Make changes, add content, and toggle between phone and tablet views to watch your app come alive. We’ll start with building an app about Minecraft, and finish up by helping you build an app about your passion! This is for kids of all ages. A general reading ability is required. Requirements: A device that can connect to the internet. We recommend a laptop, but if you have a tablet that will work too! NOTE: We can use any platform to build our app, but at this point in time, they will only deploy onto windows devices. We will have loaners for the kids to try out their newly built apps on, if they don’t have a windows device.
