That’s right It’s finally happened everyone, at 3:31pm on the 23rd July 2013 the following exchange took place on Twitter between myself and the TwitALU system!
I know it doesn’t look like much but this represented the entire system working, in fact, this was the first of a small queue that it processed successfully. This means the twitter code (which includes a tweet queueing system, tweet scrubber and then response sender) all worked perfectly and passed the calculations through layers upon layers of Jaimesh’s code to the hardware before an answer popped out and was sent back out to Twitter!
I’ll keep this one brief because there’s going to be a post or two coming up that go into much more detail about how the software side of the system does it’s thing soon! Oooooh and keep your eyes peeled (sounds a bit painful if you ask me) for a video of it all working coming up soon too!
