Friday Night Live Stream Coding


(Patrick Stuart [@pstuart]) #1

Because, why not.

Join me at 9pm Central Time tonight (short notice, I know) for a spur of the moment live coding session where I will attempt to use SmartThings and the IDE to write a simple devicetype that will play a simple game.

So come on and watch me code! Ask questions.

Thinking of doing a whole series. Trying to find the ideal time. Was fun to code in public, even though no one was watching.

I am thinking of involving others in a Google hangout and then streaming that out, who knows.

Also, I wanted to see if st could be used as a platform for games :wink:

Be neat to make the slots be 3 hues in the same room. and see if you can get them to line up in matching colors (assign only 6 colors? ROYGBV?)

Winning makes “ching ching ching” sounds on a sonos

Yeah. That might be much harder then it appears, but not impossible. Good demo of the interaction between smartapps and devices for input and output.
