I had hoped to do a more lengthy update by now, but I’ve been so deep in server code I haven’t had a chance to breathe, let alone blog. Still, I wanted to say I’m giving a short talk tonight, 7pm, Wednesday, July 13th, at the San Francisco IGDA meeting, at the Autodesk Gallery, 1 Market Street. There are some directions here.
The talk is going to be about the SpyParty network backend, and my goals, hopes, and dreams for it, and why I’m so late getting the Early-Access Beta up and running (sorry!). When I say “short”, I mean it’s only 15 minutes, and then a Q&A session. Then it’s back to work on the beta for me.
The good news is last night1 I finally got the beta registration flow working. I sent myself a beta invite email, and then clicked the link, filled out the form, got forwarded to PayPal, paid myself pretend money from the PayPal Sandbox test environment, got forwarded to the page that waits for the payment to be completed, clicked through to the beta homepage, which automatically redirected me to the login page, logged in with the new account, got to the beta homepage, clicked the link to the beta forums, and I posted an unintelligible message to myself. Progress!
Of course, an unspeakable amount of stuff happened behind the scenes in about 5 different languages to make all that work smoothly.
