How I built my own Twitch-Plays-Pokémon
According to Wikipedia, Twitch-Plays-Pokémon "is a social experiment and channel on the video streaming website Twitch, consisting of a crowdsourced attempt to play Nintendo's Pokémon video games by parsing commands sent by users through the channel's chat room.". I gave this talk at Baruco 2014, in which I explain the story of How I built my own TPP (sort of).
The talk includes technical components like "controlling a computer with JRuby" and "Writing a GameBoy emulator with Ruby".
It has some technical parts, but it's fairly motivational as well.
