Last week at Local Hack Day we spend way too much time on trying to pick a slideshow that seemed good, was of a certain length, not too long, etc. It was a hassle.
What it does
This tool makes it much more simple to get a slideshow. You click a button and BOOM: Slideshow ready for presenting.
How I built it
Challenges we ran into
XML parsing. Apparently different in every dev environment. I will dream of XML tonight.
Also slideshare.net doesn't really like us spamming their API, but we've only had two accounts banned, so it's cool.
Android best practices are frequently updated...
What I learned
What's next for Slideshare Karaoke
Make it secure lol
We also need more Steve Ballmer gifs. Definitely
While testing all of this we found out that there are some NSFW presentations on slideshare. Be careful out there.
