In 10 days, I'll be showing off an Android app I've been working on called Dojo, to dozens people I've never met before. I'm pretty nervous.
For some context, Dojo is a music player app where someone with a Spotify Premium account can host a station, and friends nearby can join the station and contribute tracks over Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). It's much easier than calling in to the radio station hoping your song gets played. I think it's even easier than finding your friend's playlist on Spotify and adding tracks to it.
A few coworkers of mine at Detroit Labs created version 1.0 of Dojo at a hackathon. We rebooted the app design and underlying tech (namely BLE) at a recent hackathon. Before the end of the year, we're hoping to have the next major version ready for the App Store and Google Play.
Up until demo day, I'll be using this blog to document the work I've been putting into Dojo, as well as to discuss decisions I've made while developing the app.
Thanks for reading!
