yep I do think one thing I'll have an awkward time getting used to is the manners of multithreaded operation... e.g. in one example I saw them using Handler objects to "execute code on the other thread"
that twisted my brain a bit lol

I just purchased a couple BLE CC2540 and ESP8266 on ebay from china and thailand so I will let you know what they are like in about 3 weeks... :)
Rickta59
have you snagged that esp8266 arduino thing?
membiblio
Spirilis - yes - Android absolutely does not like you doing things that take time in the user or application thread.
Spirilis
do they have any documentation on how to use them? (the cc2540's)
Rickta59
you can replace the at command processor with your own app on the esp8266
Spirilis
membiblio: yep I definitely got that concept drilled in pretty well... I think it's a respectable way to roll given the nature of the beast
membiblio
That code I told you about, the android, has examples for foisting stuff off on another thread.
Spirilis
nice
membiblio
There are libs of source code that are already done that do this stuff for you.
Spirilis
the idea of Intents and Content Providers are both pretty neat to me IMO, in fact, I wonder what analogous solutions exist for enterprise computing environments...
membiblio
That was the HARDEST part of that code - getting it to work from examples, but once working - voila magic!
Spirilis
haha aye
membiblio
Ok guys. You all are too fun to chat with but I must get back to the grinding stone. Later Gators!
Spirilis
later
Rickta59
adios
Spirilis
heading out myself anyhow :)
