If there’s any time, can this include some discussion about how SmartApps differ from SmartDevice Type Handlers (or whatever we’re calling them this week…)?

For example, Device Handlers do not support “atomicState'” whereas SmartApps do.

I presumed this is because Device Handlers are non-reentrant, but no one has responded to my posts asking this question. :confused:


(Brice; #3

Can we discuss what are the requirements on a SmartApp in order for it to run locally on a hub v2?

(Patrick Stuart [@pstuart]) #4

Can we talk about OAUTH endpoints in SmartApps?

How about SmartApp and child device creation, updating, interacting and deleting.

(Tim Slagle) #5

If we have time I can give you some best practices :smile:

Check out the edit above. I think you guys will be happy :smile:

Do we get to say our official goodbye’s and good-luck’s to @Mager?

I'm excited to announce that I'm starting at @Postmates on Monday as their first developer advocate!

He’s still going to be involved and around. <3 my man, mager.
