It's done. Plotting data works now. Acquired with the command line client, secretly shared in the cloud, retrieved and plotted by the client again. Hack Week 11 is a success.

I'll write more a little bit later about what I have done, how I did it, and what I learned. Now on my bike to add another bar to the chart.

Running client

The reference client for Project MySelf is alive now as well. It talks to the server and stores data, encrypted. It even can get back the data and decrypt it again. So the tooling is in place now. Next thing is actually gathering and displaying useful data.

Running server

I made the first steps with the Project MySelf server Mycroft today. I decided to write it in Go and learned quite a bit about how to deal with HTTP in Go. It's a quite powerful approach.

So now there is a server, which can register admin clients and properly authenticate access. Next stop is writing actual data.

Hack Week 11 goes with a theme: Interstellar. Go where no one went before...

I'll work on a project to retain privacy for self-tracking data: Project MySelf.

I'm looking forward to next week. Some serious hacking ahead...

Hack Week 10

For the record: An audacious goal for SUSE Hack Week 10
