ForwardJS is a conference focused on JavaScript technologies. The latest event was held in downtown San Francisco in early March. We participated in the conference for a variety of reasons including the simple fact that JavaScript is the Jibo SDK development language. There were ~300 developers in attendance. In short, this was a FUN event!

Using The Menu Flow Activity

Note : This post builds on Prototyping Interactions With a Woz Skill (https://developers.jibo.com/blog/prototyping-interactions-with-a-woz-skill)

Menus When developing skills for Jibo it will often be helpful to prompt the user with an on-screen (GUI) menu of options. Fully customized menus can be created using PixiAnimate, as discussed in previous posts.

Prototyping Interactions With a Woz Skill

See: Managing Code with Custom Flow Activities See: Flows- A Dungeon Example See: MIMs

Enabling Rapid Iteration The best way to converge on a successful strategy for interaction is to iterate rapidly, testing the way users respond to Jibo’s voice, body animations, screen animations, speech recognition, touch interface, etc.

Flow Editor Activities (Shapes) The Flow Editor provides a number of ‘activities’ (reusable shapes) that are useful for authoring flows. The core set of activities includes Begin, Parallel Begin, Flow.end, Flow.Subflow, Flow.Eval, etc. By using these activities and referencing custom skill code, just about any feature can be implemented. However, not all of the potential uses of activities have been anticipated so the SDK provides a way to implement custom activities.
