Join us for the first Tinderbox project showcase in the new Carbon Five space. We're excited to make use of the bigger venue and great setup for presentations.
Product and technology showcase:
Box2D Deathmatch - Alex Cruikshank, C5 resident mad-scientist.
How Test Driven Development started the Robot Apocalypse; Lessons learned using Twilio for Telephony - Rudy Jahchan, C5 Tech Lead
When a client approached us to build a call-center using the Twilio API we didn't realize how far we would push our "test-driven" philosophy. Join us as we explain how easy it was to go from simply using a library, to regularly running bots to actually dial our app to ensure its integrity. Tech: Twilio, Cucumber, Capybara
AutoScan: iOS Engine for Recognizing Credit Card Numbers - Louis Tran
To remove the inconvenience of having to type 15/16 numbers on a smartphone, I developed an OCR engine that would reads the numbers on the credit/debit cards. The use case would be for loading digital wallet (and to some extent mobile payment). Obtaining a high level of accuracy is the technical challenge and I share my approach to solving the challenge.
Doors open at 6p and the event will start at 6:30p.
Food and drinks will be provided.
