I’ve been having a bit of fun with my bot still. There’s a bit of user tracking in place. There’s a bit of data caching going on. There’s a little interactivity. It’s not finished by a long shot, but I’ve really enjoyed coding with a purpose for a few days at least.
I’ve also had opportunities to continue exploring Gradle, specifically in an Eclipse environment. The me of many years ago would be aghast at the amount of code I’m willing to import and incorporate. Before I was really into DIY. Now I’m just in to having things work.
Also: REST services are the bomb. JSON maybe a little less so, but I’m learning to not hate it so much.
Anyway, that’s what I’ve been doing the last few days.
