Would you like to stroll into the office to your own dramatic theme music? We can arrive in style with an epic score. Learn how to use RubyMotion, a Raspberry Pi and iBeacon Technology to play the Imperial March when the CEO walks in.
The ability for mobile devices to detect their proximity to beacons is relatively new. We will learn how they work, the common gotchas, and how to integrate with a bigger system.
Let's build something fun with Ruby and Beacons. Plus, who doesn't want an awesome theme song?
Since the inception of the programmable computer we have grappled with the challenge of validating the outcome of a conversation in code between a human and a machine. Programming as a performance embraces this challenge, putting it at the centre of a performance. Focusing on the liveliness and complexity of dancing with a machine in realtime. In a performance a human edits and writes algorithms, expressing their thoughts and composition in front of an audience. Binding to their fingertips control of light, sound and poetry. Sharing their screens and code and its effects on the world.
This talk will dive into the world of the live programmer and how you can turn your Ruby coding skills into a live performance. Discover what performance and expression has to teach us about programming.
