Last week, we had the author of TDD for a Shopping Website LiveProject. Friday at 11am Ranch time, Steven Solomon will be hosting a live TDD session just for us. See for the agenda and registration link
I have an idea for my bsc soft eng dissertation but need some help figuring out if it's realistic or not.
Basically it involves something which I have no idea about, the technology which allows you to send a text from your mobile phone to a program (sort of like a server) on a computer. For example, in the UK on BBC Radio 1 you can send a text message to the number 81199 and it will be recieved by a program on the computer infront of the radio presenter. Anyone know anything about this?
My idea involves programming something like a server that would receive these text messages and then do various things depending on the contents of the message.
Does anyone know anything about this stuff? Anywhere where I could try and get some libraries of code that would help me develop something like this?
It's called remote procecure call and it's been done an infinite number of times with infinite variety -- I am kidding about infinity, by definition.
You want to communicate from point A to point B over a specific type of network. Chances are you will write no code on the communications stack. Rather, write mock connection objects (you need to test your application independently) and finish the application first. Then add in the wireless network API of your choosing.
