Bridge? wat-bridge?

13 Oct 2016

Instant messaging services are very common nowadays. For instance, I use Telegram, while many people I know use WhatsApp, and that's cool. This, however, leads to a question I am asked often: "why don't you install WhatsApp?". The answer to that can be summarized in two main points: "because I don't want to" and "because I cannot install WhatsApp on my phone". But then again, it is interesting to see the user fragmentation between different services, so the Telegram bot API got me thinking about creating a "bridge" between WhatsApp and Telegram, just for fun.

Zoe, Telegram and transportation

05 Sep 2015

These past days I decided I wanted to end my summer holidays (back to university... yaaaay...) doing something cool with Zoe. So now Zoe can communicate through Telegram and has some knowledge on the public transportation system in Madrid (in particular, buses).
