OUTLINE
Credit to Kim Burgess (kim@acaprojects.com)- the next
few slides are from his Open Source talk he presented at
ISE in February.
Let’s talk about GIT
Tools like Github manage this.
Documentation is key to collaboration.
1. Open source is somewhat automatically documented
2. But you want to start with a nice overview page
3. Then you can learn more about the functions and responses
4. Finally, you should be able to download the application and test it out.
Depending on the license and what you are doing with it.
GNU-GPL CREATIVE COMMONS ENTERPRISE + CC, GPL
Open Non-commercial use Any combination
choosealicense.com
LICENSES
Everything should be open.
A building UX philosophy
Select products that have:
● Documented APIs
● No middleware or unnecessary cloud subscriptions to access APIs
● No vendor dependency or ecosystem lock-ins.
● No bullshit business processes like an NDA to get API access.
A company that does not have open integration is
either hiding bad tech or cannot get their head
around software business models. Either way- they
will eventually fail.
For every ‘closed’ system, there
is an ‘open’ alternative.
Steinel Human Presence Detector.
Integrates via JSON, KNX or BacNet.
PointGrab
Integrates via management software on vendor
hosted cloud
VS
Avoid middleware when you can.
Ideal design
This is OK too.
Avoid.
UX is not UI
Apply open thinking to everything, link everything,
have any system interact with any other.
Pre-building experience Car Space tracking
Concierge Services Wayfinding
Desk finding Room Booking & In Room Tec
Comfort Personalisation
AS THIS TYPE OF USER ↓ I WANT
THIS EXPERIENCE ↓ IN THIS SPACE ↓
