Flatiron School Presents - Messaging/Data Mashups

Every week during the Flatiron School semester, 3 students will present a 20 minute talk and then we'll have an hour of networking and discussiong. Every Thursday from 7pm-9pm!

For the first Flatiron Presents of the current semester, we'll have three students demonstrating a common mashup pattern, combining a data source with a messaging service to make remote data instantly useful. For example, scraping apartment listings on craigslist and texting you when an apartment that matches your criteria is posted.

The presenters will be Christina Chang, Andrew Callahan, and Danny Olinsky.

We're going to be looking at a service that will call you with blog posts, a script that will email you the recipe of the day from epicurious, and a CLI concert lookup with calendar integration.

See you Thursday!

    To Cynthia:

    This is an example of how to message data from one class - in this example, class A - to another (in this example, class B)

    new-host-3:myfirst vphuvan$ irb
    >> class A
    >> def self.output
    >> 1
    >> end
    >> end
    => nil

    Verify that A.output throws out 1 as output
    >> A.output
    => 1

    >> class B
    >> def self.input(n)
    >> n
    >> end
    >> end
    => nil

    Verify that class B echoes any input that you put in
    >> B.input(10)
    => 10

    Verify that B.input is receiving output from A.output
    >> B.input(A.output)
    => 1
    >> And yes, I like to use class methods when there is no point to creating objects :)

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
