Patrick joins us again to give us the low down on the Loom Grid API. We go over how one would use the API to create a shopping cart. To create a sweep system to clear out temporary locations used in the public facing cart. SSL/TLS connection checking with the backend. Test code in perl to see how the API works. How to do atomic transactions with many moves/api calls. Any programmer listening to this will have a very clear way to integrate loom into any payment gateway, shopping cart, market system, anything that would need to accept Loom payments Into, Out from, or Inside of the Loom system.
A very basic introduction to Loom. Simple, easy to understand and very informative. Topics covered include: The difference between Loom and Paypal/e-gold/GoldMoney/Pecunix type systems we are all familiar with. Very easy to understand explanations on how loom making and receiving of payments work. What are usage tokens and invitations. Loom locations, contacts accounts and assets.
“Loom for Dummies” will be followed up with Part 2 on How to get a loom account, transfer money in, or get loom assets”. Part 3 will cover a very basic intro on how to issue your own assets.
