Hack and Tell, 2013-09-10
Dude, it was awesome, you totally missed out:
Kai Hendry described how he and Adnan
Jaludin rigged up
a Raspberry Pi to log the temperature of the
Hackerspace. There are graphs!
There is also code.
Yours Truly demoed a tiny parser he wrote to load
Kindle clipping files into Mnemosyne,
so he doesn’t forget specifics of the books he reads.
Ted Chen described an audio
steganography project; he and his team embedded a VLF beacon into a music
file. Kind of like how Lucius Fox mapped Gotham in The Dark Knight
(2008)?!?! An earlier demo is
Melvin Zhang talked about a collection of
AI programs he’s developed to play Magic: The Gathering.
You should check out Magarena.
Shaun Martin walked
through two very different programs to print the Fibonnaci sequence
in Haskell. Stuff’s mind-blowing.
Chinmay Pendharkar gave us a brief
introduction to the Web Audio API. His complete slides are
here, but we only had time
for a compressed version of that.
Lim Chee Aun returned to give us a progress
report on his Bus Route Explorer,
a web application to view the routes of Singapore’s bus services. You
should play with it, it is the best thing.
Phil Mockridge explained that his customers
can pay for lessons with Bitcoin, which is pretty
cool I guess?!?
There’s always next time..
