Live coding with live (Hull) data

July 14, 2017, 7:09 a.m.

Empowering others to 'make the world a better place through digital making' has been the project's fundamental aim from the beginning.

Projects in schools, team challenges to solve real world problems, individual project builds and community events are all contributing to an ever increasing open data set for others to share and use themselves via The Things Network Hull.

Here's a taster of how we've started to share these activities through creative projects and build on developing digital skills.

This time the storytelling is based on a piece of music which has been live coded from a live data stream coming from a weather station project built at Hull Raspberry Jam.

Live and live?

Here's Sam Aaron linking the live temperature data feed into The Things Network Hull (logged via the Enviro pHat on a Raspberry Pi) into a live coding test using Sonic Pi v3.

A definite taster of things to come.

Watch (or rather, listen) out for more data stories through music over the coming weeks.

How will our data from Hull finally sound?
