The Beats Music Python library by Teja Vishwanadha allows developers to work with two interfaces: the API object and the suite of models. The API object refers to a wrapper and models specify user friendly interactions. Easy for the user, somehow more complex for the developer, according to the author. The functionality of the API affords to access data related to music catalogs, music tracks, and music playlists.

In this post I'll describe how we planned, built and tested a truly real-time location-based game with Socket.io, Redis, Node.js, and what we learned along the way. Over the past few months, we've spent the majority our free time building a real-time game as a test for our location platform, Geoloqi. We call the game MapAttack! due to its map-based nature. Two teams compete to capture the most points on the gameboard. The gameboard, in this case, is the city streets of the neighborhood the players are in.
