In this event at Globo, I’ve run the same workshop three times throughout the day. In it we used Lua and ESP8266 to explore the world of IoT from a beginners perspective.

DB Lib is a minimalistic database library for LiveCode that works on Desktop and Mobile and allows you to build database-savvy apps without writing SQL directly. This post is to introduce a great new feature called Remote DB Lib. As you may know from posts on the How To Use LiveCode mailing list and forums, many developers would like to use DB Lib in their apps over the internet. Like all other database libraries that work on top of RevDB, DB Lib (until today) needed to connect directly to the database server to work and this is not a good solution for apps that work over the internet since exposing MySQL to the internet at large is a huge security risk.
Today I am releasing the first version of a drop-in replacement library called Remote DB Lib. This new library has the same API as the current DB Lib but instead of working on top of RevDB, it works alongside a matching PHP file on your server, it is this PHP file that actually talks to the database server. The Remote DB Lib picks all your DB Lib calls and packs it on an encrypted message that is sent to the PHP file where it is decrypted and executed. This library is using state of the art AES 256 encryption (you can also add a free SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt to add even more security) to protect your data.
Moderated a conversation about the intersection of maker spaces and education.
As seen in this previous post we had a wonderful time explorind the world of Firefox Add-ons and WebExtensions.
Memories from the event
Gave a talk on potential new interfaces and devices for JS developers at Intercon 2016 which is a large conference here in Brazil with about 1500 attendees.
I gave a talk at the event about Game Development with PhaserJS
Gave both a talk and a workshop about doing IoT with Tessel 2 and JS. Best. Event. Ever.
I had a catastrophic failure in my slide software during that talk. Both Firefox and Chrome failed. I got a bit scared and in my opinion couldn’t recover well. Still, the workshop on the next day was great.
