As one of Indonesia’s leading IoT maker movement enabler, DycodeX is more than happy to bring Internet of Things to more people in Indonesia. On September 1, 2018, DycodeX, collaborating with DycodeEdu and Indonesia Android Kejar, visited vocational schools in Malang, East Java to share the basics of IoT development as part of the SMK Coding program. Using ESPectro 32 v2 development board, students of SMK Negeri 4 Malang and SMK Negeri 8 Malang learned how to flash code from an integrated development environment (IDE) to a development board.
Hisyam Kamil, IoT engineer at DycodeX, along with Indonesia Android Kejar, led the ESPectro32 v2 training at SMK Negeri 8 Malang. About 20 students of the software engineering (RPL) specialization attended the course. By the end of the course, the students are expected to have a basic understanding of IoT development, giving them the knowledge to start experimenting further.
DycodeX is proud to bring ESPectro32 v2 as the development board of choice in SMK Coding. Designed to be versatile and easy-to-use, ESPectro3 v2 can be coded very easily by vocational students who are just getting started into hardware programming, while allowing for further experimentation should the students have more knowledge about IoT.
SMK Coding is a program initiated by Ditjen Aptika Kominfo that teaches technical programming skills to students of vocational schools (Sekolah Menengah Kejuruan) from all across the country to prepare them with necessary hard and soft skills for the industry. Courses taught in this program include Android app development as well as basics of IoT development.
