Catrobat considers itself the little sister project of Scratch for smartphones. Over the last decade, the Catrobat FOSS team has turned towards Snap!, TurtleStitch, NetsBlox, and ecraft2learn's AI extension for inspiration and new ideas to bring to Android and iOS. In my presentation I will show what in particular inspired us from Snap!, what we cannot yet do but are working on, as well as a few ideas from Catrobat that could be of use to others. Here are a few keywords on what we are currently still working on but already have implemented to some degree: Embroidery, generalized lists and lambda, JavaScript integration, hacker/dark-red mode, web API access, and AI integration. And a few things we can share: Scenes, merging, unit- and functional testing in the block-based visual language, signing of user apps, our physics game engine, and of course the small form factor of smartphones.

The Secrets & Surprises in Coding Spirals:
TurtleStitch Tur-torial

Cynthia Solomon, Sarah Magner,

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION In this workshop, we will focus on building blocks that allow you to play with polygons and spirals with TurtleStitch. If you create a design you love and do not have access to a computerized embroidery machine, global TurtleStitch community friends will embroider & mail you your design!

TurtleStitch is an activity and a coding environment. TurtleStitching is a mi...


Grand Gestures
Storytelling with AI

Jens Mönig, Jadga Hügle

In this workshop we'll share a curriculum around AI that we're currently working on. We try to show how to use machine learning in the classroom by implementing a gesture recognizer (based on the $1 gesture recognizer) in Snap!

We start by creating a single-stroke gesture drawing program.
By building an "animate" control structure based on the pen trails, we are able to animate our drawn...


Codification (Transformation) of GUI Elements and database structures from SNAP to Python
From blocks language to typing language by SNAP Code conversion

Matthias Kim

Codification means to create Python code directly out of SNAP Code via a mapping SNAP blocks to Python code. The created Python Code via codification in SNAP is downloaded and runs immediately in Python. This has been useful in supporting the steps from SNAP development in a blocks language to a typing language. I would like to show how we enhanced codification with GUI elements: There a...
