Riaan Cornelius - Brewing beer using Android Things @ DevConf Johannesburg 2018
Recorded at https://www.DevConf.co.za on March 27 2018 in Johannesburg South Africa.

While some home brewers consider automation to somehow make your brewing less “real”, part of the reason I brew is because I get to make stuff (I also happen to like beer).

In this talk I’ll very briefly go through the beer brewing process and explain what requirements I came up with for my project.

Then I’ll give you a very brief introduction into clean architecture before diving into how I used it to make my Android Things project simple, testable and extendable.

Along the way I’ll show you how you can run your IOT project on an emulator to help with debugging as well as testing.

About the speaker
Riaan is Technical Lead who develops mobile apps for Discovery by day and tries to find ridiculously interesting projects to tinker with by night.

His decade of work experience includes setting up an SMS service for USAID in Afghanistan, consulting on a mobile CRM system in Costa Rica and helping out with systems for an SMS campaign during presidential elections in Zambia.

In his spare time he likes to tinker with computer vision, robotics and home automation projects. There has been rumours of an obsession with all things beer related as well. This has led to talks on using Sci-fi interfaces as inspiration, using computer vision to keep physical and electronic scrum boards in sync, getting started with robotics using Javascript and building your own keyboard.
