Shairplay and WS2801
Kyle mounted the LEDs onto a cardboard, and packaged it to look cool.
We thought we were done with the project, until we found out we weren’t! The LEDs all lighted up correctly, when we played the audio from a file on disk, but streaming messed something up! Only the first few columns lighted up, when we were listening on the stream.
We spent the whole evening trying to debug the issue, and eliminated quite a few hypothesis, but weren’t able to fix it, yet.
rntz live coded a parser for us yesterday, and I learnt a few things about parsers. I’m glad I went to the discussion/talk.
I started working through the videos of Anatomy of Matplotlib, and hope to get new insights into how it works.
Today will be spent mostly trying to get streaming audio working.
I feel like debugging this, will take my understanding of the hardware-software interface to a new level.
