In this weekly livestream series, Ted M. Young and I build an AI-powered role-playing game using React, Spring Boot, and Nullables. And, of course, plenty of discussion about design, architecture, and effective programming practices.
In this episode...
We continue working on our front end. After some conversation about working in small steps, we turn our attention to
BackEndClient, our front-end wrapper for communication to the back-end server. We start out by writing a test to define the back-end API, then modify our
