        So we very, very early on, we were iOS only, then we thought, well we’re missing out on half of the market. We need to add Android. So we had a friend of ours start working on the Android app, and I had to build the API for him, but I was having a really hard time doing that because I didn’t know what he needed exactly, so I built the first version of the web store over the weekend because I wanted to have a client to consume myself for the API I was building.

        Play is a central framework/component/library (not sure what to call things these days) in Scala. We <3 Scala, and therefore we <3 Play.

        Play is on of several frameworks we are prototyping and vetting for various public-facing websites, and may ultimately be the framework behind the main datapile.io website.

        The Android SDK is the key-component of all Android-based development and had to be included in this stack for sure. We work with the SDK through IntelliJ IDEA and the command-line.

        I used Play to build a configuration UI for the service, which let you create and manage the menus (a hierarchical tree of options and actions).
