「他十二歲,他親手設計、行銷APP」- Thomas Suarez: A twelve-year-old app developer


框選或點兩下字幕可以直接查字典喔!

I've always had a fascination for computers and technology, and I made a few apps for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. I'd like to share a couple with you today.
我一直以來都對電腦和科技著迷,我也設計了幾個iPhone、iPod Touch和iPad的應用程式。今天我想要與你們分享幾個。

My first app was a unique fortune teller called Earth Fortune that would display different colors of earth depending on what your fortune was. My favorite and most successful app is Bustin Jieber, which is a...which is a Justin Bieber Whac-A-Mole. I created it because a lot of people at school disliked Justin Bieber a little bit, so I decided to make the app. So I went to work programming it, and I released it just before the holidays in 2010.
我第一個應用程式是一個叫做「Earth Fortune」的特殊算命程式,它會依照你的運勢顯示不同顏色的地球。我最喜歡且最成功的應用程式是「Bustin Jieber」,這是...這是小賈斯汀的打地鼠遊戲。我設計這個程式是因為學校有許多人不大喜歡小賈斯汀,所以我決定做這個應用程式。我著手設計程式,且正好在2010的假期前推出。

A lot of people ask me, how did I make these? A lot of times it's because the person who asked the question wants to make an app also. A lot of kids these days like to play games, but now they want to make them, and it's difficult, because not many kids know where to go to find out how to make a program. I mean, for soccer, you could go to a soccer team. For violin, you could get lessons for a violin. But what if you wanna make an app? And their parents, these kids' parents might have done some of these things when they were young, but not many parents have written apps. Where do you go to find out how to make an app? Well, this is how I approached it. This is what I did.
許多人問我:我怎麼做出這些的?很多時候是因為問這問題的人也想做應用程式。今日許多孩子喜歡玩遊戲,但現在他們想要做遊戲,而這很困難,因為沒有很多小孩知道哪裡可以學到如何寫出程式。我是說,像足球,你可以加入足球隊。像小提琴,你可以上小提琴課。但如果你想做出應用程式呢?而他們的父母,這些孩子的父母在年輕時可能都做過其中一些事情,但沒有太多父母曾寫過應用程式。你要去哪裡學會如何做出應用程式?嗯,我是這樣開始接觸的。我是這樣做的。

First of all, I've been programming in multiple other programming languages to get the basics done, such as Python, C, Java, etc. And then Apple released the iPhone, and with it, the iPhone software development kit, and the software development kit is a suite of tools for creating and programming an iPhone app. This opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me, and after playing with the software development kit a little bit, I made a couple apps, I made some test apps. One of them happened to be Earth Fortune, and I was ready to put Earth Fortune on the App Store, and so I persuaded my parents to pay the ninety-nine dollar fee to be able to put my apps on the App Store. They agreed, and now I have apps on the App Store.
首先,我一直在寫很多種其他程式語言來打好基礎,像是Python、C、Java等等。接著Apple推出了iPhone,其中有iPhone軟體研發工具組,這個軟體研發工具組是一套供創作及編寫iPhone應用程式的工具。這為我開啟了一個充滿可能性的全新世界,在稍微把玩這個軟體研發工具組後,我做出了幾個應用程式,我做出一些測試的應用程式。其中一個正好是「Earth Fortune」,我當時已準備好將「Earth Fortune」放上App Store,所以我說服我的父母支付九十九元的費用,讓我的應用程式能放上App Store。他們同意了,而現在我在App Store上有應用程式。

I've gotten a lot of interest and encouragement from my family, friends, teachers and even people at the Apple Store, and that's been a huge help to me. I've gotten a lot of inspiration from Steve Jobs, and I've started an app club at school, and a teacher at my school is kindly sponsoring my app club. Any student at my school can come and design...learn how to design an app. This is so I can share my experiences with others.
我從我的家人、朋友、老師,甚至從App Store裡的人身上得到許多關心和鼓勵,那對我是很大的幫助。我從賈伯斯身上得到許多啟發,我在學校創辦應用程式社,我在學校的一位老師很好心地贊助我的應用程式社。學校裡的任何學生可以過來並設計...學習如何設計應用程式。這樣我就可以與其他人分享我的經驗。

There're these programs called the iPad Pilot Program, and some districts have them. I'm fortunate enough to be part of one. A big challenge is, how should the iPads be used, and what apps should we put on the iPads? So we're getting feedback from teachers at the school to see what kind of apps they'd like. When we design the app and we sell it, it will be free to local districts, and other districts that we sell to, all the money from that will go into the local ed foundations. These days, students usually know a little bit more than teachers with the technology. So... Sorry. So this is a resource to teachers, and educators should recognize this resource and make good use of it.
有些叫做iPad試驗計畫的方案,有些地區有這些方案。我很幸運能夠身為其中一部分。有個大挑戰是,iPad該如何使用,而我們該放些什麼應用程式到iPad上?我們從學校老師那得到一些意見回饋,來看他們想要什麼類型的應用程式。我們設計應用程式、且販售時,在本地地區是免費的,然後在其他我們銷售的地區、從那賺來所有的錢會投入到本地的教育機構(education foundations)。目前,學生在科技方面通常懂得比老師多一些些。所以...抱歉。所以這是老師們的資源,而教師們應該認可這種資源,並善用它。

I'd like to finish up by saying what I'd like to do in the future. First of all, I'd like to create more apps, more games. I'm working with a third party company to make an app. I'd like to get into Android programming and development, and I'd like to continue my app club, and find other ways for students to share knowledge with others. Thank you.
我想要談談我未來想做的事來作結。首先,我想要做出更多應用程式,更多遊戲。我正和一間第三方公司合作設計應用程式。我想要參與Android的程式設計及研發,我想要繼續經營我的應用程式社,並找出其他學生能彼此分享知識的途徑。謝謝你們。
