Kirsten has created a system, available on Github, which interacts with Fitbit, MyFitnessPal, and Withings, to create a health tracking system. The Fitbit API is used to store and retrieve data, and that data is used to create analytics and history. More importantly, though, this system allows Kirsten to create triggers in the world around her. It will send nagging notes via SMS using Twilio, change the colors of a Philips hue lightbulb based on progress for the day, and interact with any other API-driven service. Examples of all of these will be shared with you!

For the example given, Kirsten will be tracking:

Exercise - at least 10,000 steps or the equivalent

Protein - at least 80 grams per day

Water - at least 64 ounces per day

Produce - at least 5 servings per day.

The system allows you to set different notifications (SMS, email, internet of things) for different times of the day and different levels. What Gets Measured Gets Done - come learn how to train yourself into a healthier person.

Take a look at what Kirsten is doing on Github, or check out Fitbit, MyFitnessPal, Withings, or Twilio.
