City Run Lite

   Period: Jun - July 2015   

City Run Lite is an Android running app. It is a 4 weeks project did in the summer junior programmer training organised by CityU Apps Lab. In the training, each team of 3 or 4 has to build an app and showcase it in the final presentation. In a team of three, we designed a running app for CityU students because we want to encourage the university students to do more exercise. Our app can record the speed, distance traveled, time and calories burnt for each run. It can also show the route of your run and store the record for you. 

What inspired me to do this?

" I started interested in coding after writing the website for iGEM team. Since then I tried to teach myself other programming languages such as javascript and python. But only following the mini course tasks and instructions in the online course doesn't satisfy me. I want to designa and build my own app. Meanwhile, I found CityU Apps Lab were recruiting students to join the summer junior programmer training. I know this is a very good chance for me to meet more poeple who are interested in learning coding and may be more experienced. So I wrote to the program leader to explain why I want to join and convinced her to give me a chance. Finally, I got there. "
