This week’s Mercer/Macon Google Developer Group was hosted at SparkMacon, and my friend and coworker, Michael Rosario, was presenting on DroidScripts.
This is Michael.
The IDE you develop in is browser based, so no downloading a bulky application. You just download the DroidScript app from the Play Store, and it will give you an IP address to navigate to the IDE. The app essentially is using your phone as a web server, so the IDE IP address is pointing to your phone. But its password-protected, so don’t worry!
The IDE is pretty simple.
The DroidScript app comes pre-loaded with a bunch of sample applications, like a Text-to-Speech application that reads what you type in the app. And also an off-brand Flappy-Bird app with equally bad physics.
A pretty cool app that Michael developed with DroidScript is a controller for his woodcut robot. It moves straight, left, and right (randomly I think) and avoids obstacles via the sensors on the robot. It’s pretty nifty.
At one point, this was made completely out of legos.
Anyways, GDG is held weekly on Tuesdays if you wanna come check it out! There’s more information on the Google Plus Community.
