Imagine was a success!
We met the public and got their opinions on what they would like to track using Emp
and the results pretty much speak for themselves. It
seems like Social networking was high on the list like we knew it would be, but Home
Automation and Security were just as high if not higher.
So it looks like our first round of plugins to tackle will be social networking.
But some promising leads were presented that I'd like to mention. We will be looking
into X10 Home automation among other hardware as we were pleased to be able to talk
to a gentleman who worked for them. We will also be looking more closely at facial
recognition and security related plugins soon as well.
Whats next for Emp? Well, we want to get the core cleaned and polished for release.
Therefore, next on the agenda is to get the Plugin API and Interface API formalized and
up on the website. (Although if you want to see our working API repo, please
email dev.) Next, we will release an alpha version of
the framework along with some example interfaces to hopefully spark a bit more interest.
As of now, we do not have a release date as two of we are in finals crunch week and will
have our heads buried in books.
We will keep everyone informed that has submitted their emails
and will post on this blog as well. Please make sure you watch us on
Github, as we will release the API and source code
