Let me tell you how I’ve combined a raspberryPi, a projector, and a camera to create a strategy boardgame which handles the details for you.
I'm going to take you step-by-step through how I built this game. In doing so I'll be answering the following questions: - Why even? and how did the idea evolve over time? - What obstacles did I encounter and how did I solve them? - What packages did I leverage? - How did I modularize components to make it multipurpose?
I will focus less on the details of each function, and more on the way in which they were combined. It is my hope that attendees will 1. gain a deep understanding of how the game works, and 2. feel confident in their ability to design their own version, using this as a template.
After finishing my MSc in nuclear physics, I've found life impossible without a few fun projects - from this game, to a novelty car horn, to fixing up bikes.
Currently I'm living downtown Toronto and exploring all of those awesome chinatown restaurants. Who knew you could find $7 pitchers downtown!?
At work I do predictive modeling in the financial sector. Exploring machine learning algorithms has been another great project/hobby. Python has been a great buddy to have for all things ML.
