    How to Use Postman to Make Requests and Test APIs Copy of TwilioQuest  Blog Headers  1200X628.png

    This post is a part of a series that supports an expanded adventure, as of May 2022, in TwilioQuest, but it will be relevant to anyone curious about Postman. Happy reading!

    Ahoy, operator. Congratulations on gaining acceptance into the Arcane Academy of API Arts. I’m Professor Rose Barrington, head of House Hopper. In House Hopper we believe that code is everywhere. We use tools to magnify our magic and bring code to smart devices all over the world. One tool, in particular, that supports our work is Postman.

    Postman is “an API platform for building and using APIs. Postman simplifies each step of the API lifecycle and streamlines collaboration.”

    You can see why students in House Hopper would make great use of this tool! If you’re exploring your connection to House Hopper, feel free to read this lesson, where I’ll be explaining more about what Postman …

    Team TwilioQuest: Translation Retrospective TwilioQuest Extension to Education

    Translation retrospective

    My role for the past few months has been as a community developer and content translator for the Japanese-language version of TwilioQuest – two distinct ‘hats’ that complement each other well, when you think about the skills involved in translating game content. But before I delve further into an explanation of my experience translating TwilioQuest, I want to talk about my appreciation for the game’s purpose and the people playing it.

    Why this work matters to me

    When I first spoke to Margaret about working on TwilioQuest, I was most drawn to the possibilities of the gamification of difficult subjects. I myself am an academic at heart - I’ve always been at home in academia, and when I am unsure of where I’m going, that’s the place I return to. I know all too well, however, that this isn’t the case for everyone. Many people are not comfortable …

    TwilioQuest Authoring: Play Community Content and Build Your Own TwilioQuest Authoring Play Community Content and Build Your Own.png

    Share Custom Content with Extensions

    TwilioQuest 3.2 ships with a big new feature called “Extensions”. With this feature, you can now load in missions, maps, and objects created by the TwilioQuest community alongside Twilio authored content. This means you can now build your own content too!

    At a high level, an extension is one root folder composed of a series of folders containing images, scripts, and maps. TwilioQuest reads all of this information from extensions you've installed to create new missions for you to play.

    We build all of the bundled content in TwilioQuest with these extensions too. You can check out how we built every mission in the game on the TwilioQuest Github account.

    Extensions Gallery

    To help you discover new community content to play, we've built an Extensions Gallery as well. This gallery lets you or anyone else submit a TwilioQuest extension straight to the TwilioQuest team …

    TwilioQuestを活用して教育力をアップ TwilioQuest Extension to Education

    このBlogはTwilioQuestチームのMargaret Staplesこちらで公開した記事を日本語化したものです。

    TwilioQuestは、16ビット時代のレトロな見た目を持つ、テクニカルスキルを習得できるビデオゲームです。われわれはこのゲームを幅広い学習者に気軽に取り組んでもらえるものとしてお勧めしています。Twilioコミュニティの誰もがこの楽しい教育プラットフォームを利用して知識を共有できるというのは、素晴らしいことだと思います。

    また、GitHubで提供しているオープンソースのテンプレートを使いTwilioQuestゲーム開発者としてエクステンションの開発を簡単に始められます。

    保存して続行

    特定の分野でエキスパートになる最も効率のよい方法は、他の人にどう教えるかを検討することです。ポートフォリオプロジェクト、GitHubプロファイル、履歴書などでは、専門性を前進させる機会を確保する上で必要な、総合的な理解といったものを伝えられないことがよくあります。

    TwilioQuestの新しいレベル(ミッション)を作るということは、技術的な理解を伝えるだけでなく、どんなチームにも必要かつ非常に貴重なさまざまなスキルを持っていることを示すことにもなります。例をあげてみましょう。

    • 大規模プロジェクトを、個々の実行可能なステップに分解する
    • さまざまな分野を取り込み、1つにまとめる
    • 複雑なアイデアを、幅広い対象者に伝える
    • チームメイトのレベルアップ(スキル向上)に寄与する

    経験値を共有し、次世代の開発者のレベルアップに寄与

    Building Custom Extensions: The Twin Stick Training Range TwilioQuest Logo

    This is the first post in a series where I'll make an extension on an interesting topic in a day or two. Afterward, I'll share the source code and a short write up with some details about the extension.

    TwilioQuest is all about having fun while learning. With the new extension authoring tools, we've created there are more opportunities for fun than ever. For this first post, I wanted to focus entirely on the fun side of things. Without further ado, let me present this state of the art training simulation where you can train to defeat Cedric's evil twin, Fredric.

    Check out the source on GitHub!

    Prototyping new features using world.__internals

    We've talked on the team about how many cool things we could do in TwilioQuest if we could spawn arbitrary objects while the game is running. I wanted to explore what it takes to get that going in …
