Going to the Wolfram booth at MHacks really got me interested in the Wolfram Language and their new Programming Cloud. Looking into it, the language itself is something out of a science fiction movie being able to perform one hundred lines of code in two or three lines of code. I wanted to do something simple and fun, so I created WolfWeather. Its goals are straightforward: it gives users current weather updates, the time, date, weekday, the Zodiac year, and their GPS location. It also promotes the Wolfram Language and shows off a bit of the sheer power the language has as a knowledge base. The target user could be just about anyone who needs updates, to get ready for their day, or in need of a wolf picture or two. In general, I am most proud of being able to use this new language a bit and really explore what the Wolfram computational engine and Cloud computing has to offer.
