The intent of this project was to create a zero-UI application building off of the rest of the course material for 49-714 Programming for Online Prototypes.  For this project, I made an SMS-based bot that can play Mastermind via text.  As the cover picture indicates, the intent is to provide additional functionality such as tic-tac-toe, chess, or other games.  The bot has a bit of personality and cheesy dialogue to support it calling itself "GameTron Automaton 4000."

This bot was used to practice programming in Ruby, as well as to gain familiarity with Sinatra, Heroku, ad Twilio to create web services that others can use.  While this bot has limited functionality at this time, it is still intended to be a fun distraction for students.
