We wanted to try and handle large amounts of data, from different sources, including the Bloomerg API.
How it works
We gather different data about the given company, for example: social media accounts, financial data and Twitter sentiment from Bloomberg, information from Wikipedia etc. This is done trough various apis using Flask(Python) for the backend.
Challenges we ran into
Updating the python version on aws... it killed everything; learning to build chrome extensions, especially POST and GET requests; front end in general ...
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Finding data which is not that obvious to find and using it. Making that extension work.
What we learned
Well, managing data, a lot about both front and back end of web development. Getting data; making chrome extensions; making pretty graphs;
What's next for TreeChart
Integrating a way to buy stocks trough the app, uploading the extension to Google.
