After launching our iOS app Gotta Go!, we wanted to get a better sense of when and how often people were activating their excuses.
To do this, we built a ticker that would display recently activated emojis on an LED board. In this video, recorded during a lunch & learn session at Yeti, Dean demonstrates how we did it.
We used a Raspberry Pi, LED board, and some clever API requests. We also happened to break our office's internet in the process, but let's forget about that part. Read more of our takeaways and see photos of the project here.
