Quantify Thyself, then Go Forth and Conquer with a Personal Life API

Learn how to expose all your quantified self data via a simple Life API. Use that data for tasks ranging from making real-time decisions to long term planning.

The presentation/workshop is composed of the following three phases.

Phase 1: Use techniques from Personal Productivity experts to identify what data is important to quantify.

Phase 2: Create a template for helping us determine what tools, services and devices will automate (mostly) our data collection.

Phase 3: Combine and expose our data behind a Life API. We will design the API using APIary.io and implement it using Python/Flask. At this point we will explore how we can use this API and put our data to work.

To focus and make sure you all walk away with a tangible result within our allotted time, we will limit our scope to the area of health.
