It was exciting to have so many new Hacker Schoolers in the space. But, the excitement was kinda distracting too.
I spent most of the day looking at shairport, and libshairport and trying to wrap it, so I can use it to get data for the spectrum analyzer via the Air-play protocol. I was able to call it using
ctypes, but it doesn’t seem discoverable.
I also briefly looked at Julia and dwm, to try and port dwm to Julia. It doesn’t seem like too much work, but is going to take me a while given how comfortable I’m with both Julia and C.
Yaron Minsky’s talk on distributed systems was a great introduction to Distributed systems.
After the talk, I spent a little time updating my notes from an old org-mode workshop to present it at the emacs user group meet up today.
I hope to get the spectrum analyzer to use
libshairportand be able to play music sent through Air play.
Spend some time talking to the emacs user group about org-mode.
If I have any time, after getting this to work, I may play around with the dwm port.
