Foosball Status and Reservation System With Slack Integration #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

As usual, there were many concepts how to deal with such a system. But generally, one basic rule appeared in all of them: it has to be simple to use without any unimportant steps to perform to reserve and work with the system.

The device and the service are not sticked to the kicker table and can be used for any “common resource” (like ping-pong table, console, etc…) which needs some kind of reservation solution.

So, let’s get started…
