What Is Thunkable Academy?

Thunkable Academy is Thunkable’s self-paced learning environment. With videos that cover the basics and best practices to start, and more advanced content coming soon, Thunkable Academy is designed to help you quickly and effectively create your own custom, native, mobile applications.

Our first step-by-step course walks you through the process of building your own directory app for our good friend Billy Beaver. The course is broken down into bite-sized chunks to set you up with skills you can then use in a wide variety of other apps.

What’s Next?

This is just the beginning! We’re already brewing up our next courses. Here’s a sneak peek into upcoming topics:

  • Publishing your app
  • Marketing your app
  • App design best practices
  • … and more!

We’d love to hear from you. What did you think? What do you want to see next? Please leave a comment below with suggestions for projects you’d like to see us build in future courses.

Is there a particular app (app clone/app idea) I should be able to build by the end of that short series?

Hey @jared! Great to hear from you, and great question! In this first course we work on establishing a strong foundation by way of building a directory app together. In the process we use a variety of components, connect to a data source, and build out the block combinations to support our design.

Helpful videos. Quick suggestion: the microphone must be a bit far away from you because the audio is quite “roomy” and sometimes hard to make out. I would suggest a better mic, or perhaps a lapel mic to really pick up on your voice. Looking forward to seeing more videos.

Hello @mbritt! So good to “see” you here! Thank you so much for the valuable feedback and recommendations. This was a v1 soft launch and we’re currently working on v2, so I’m very appreciative of your experienced suggestions. Stay tuned for our next batch of courses.
