As someone who loves his sleep, I'm never sure I get enough - this tracker should help to inform me of how well I'm keeping up on my Z's.
What it does
It uses a Particle Button & an IFTTT script to log timestamps in a Google Sheets, which then calculates the amount of hours that I've slept.
How I built it
Carefully, slowly, and painfully. I'm completely new to this.
Challenges I ran into
The first Particle button we rented out had firmware errors. We also had to write new firmware in C++ to get the Particle button to talk to IFTTT, and as a CS novice (only AP Computer Science with Java), that was completely new.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Tried a new language, new online tools (IFTTT), and some hardware too all in the span of 24 hours.
What I learned
That maybe this isn't that scary after all!
What's next for Particle Button Sleep Tracker
Gonna try it out for 3 months and see.
