McMaster University has hosted another hackathon titled DeltaHacks II. It was a blast working with random strangers in the previous hackathon where DoctorHookups application was made. This time I went again alone to work with new random strangers. This time we made a smoking habit application that involves with a wearable device, we use the affordable Pebble smart watch. We were given the wearable as a task to make a problem-solving solution with the device. So we came up with SmokeFree, an android based application that tracks your smoking habit with the accurate gyrometer readings from the Pebble smartwatch.
This application was complimented with an Android application that consists of an interface that tracks and record your smoking habits. The application has options to help you set your goals, and does cost saving calculation on how much you have saved.
My contribution to this application is to run tests, using JUnit testing tool for the Java application. learning a new language C in the process to code an app on the Pebble smartwatch. Learning these tools were a challenge as I have to consistently look up functions and what do they do but eventually we successfully created an application enough to present at the demonstration phase in the hackathon.
This application can be found here and was collaborated with Nancy Du, Sylvester Chiang, and James Earle.
