This talk is about using Telegram as a Platform. (Telegram is a cloud-based mobile and desktop messaging app with a focus on security and speed.)
My intent of this talk is to share the many ways we can make use of the Telegram Bot API to implement 'apps' that you can use with your favourite people, or even just for yourself.
The Telegram client can potentially save you a significant amount of development time, due to the simplicity of implementing your Bot and the already-ready simple-to-use UI.
If you still can't conceptualise this, think of this really simple problem which I have solved with TaaP: my favourite people can't decide where we should eat for our dinner meeting later.
I will be demonstrating the entire process (if time permits :D) of solving my problem above, in Ruby.
This talk was recorded at GeekCampSG 2015 on 26 September 2015.
