SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT WITH techBASIC

KEY FEATURES:

COLLECT DATA

◆ Send and receive data from Bluetooth LE devices (only on hardware that supports Bluetooth LE)--control the Internet of Things, right from your iPhone or iPad
◆ Collect data from outside sensors using HiJack
◆ Access to the built-in accelerometer, magnetometer and gyroscope
◆ Get the current GPS location and heading
◆ Supports TCP/IP, HTTP and FTP for accessing information via WiFi connections

BASIC PROGRAMMING

◆ Create apps with all of the standard iOS controls
° Use buttons, lists, sliders, pickers, etc.
° Take pictures with the camera
° Display web sites and documents
° Show maps
◆ Step and trace debugger
° Set breakpoints with a tap
° See current variables, both local and global
° See everything in a variable, even large matrices
◆ Array & matrix commands like matrix inversion, determinants, matrix arithmetic & more
◆ BASIC is easy to learn and use
◆ BASIC ranks in the top 5 most popular programming languages in most surveys

ANALYZE DATA

◆ Numeric integration for calculus
◆ Fit curves to data with polynomial and linear regression
◆ Solve simultaneous equations with matrix operations like LU decomposition
◆ Special functions for statistics

GRAPHING CAPABIITIES

◆ Create a plot with only a few lines of code
◆ Pan and zoom plots with swipes and pinches
◆ Rotate 3D plots along an arbitrary axis
◆ Supports 2D or 3D Cartesian axis
◆ Polar, spherical and cylindrical axis
◆ Create error bars in 2 or 3 dimensions
◆ Add custom callouts
◆ The power-user’s graphing calculator--see how in our web tutorial

techBASIC IN THE STEM CLASSROOM

◆ Understand physics from real data, like zero G on a swing
◆ Check calculus homework with fast, accurate numeric quadrature (integration)
