I helped create a similar service at my school.
What it does
It lets people get local information using SMS messages. It's the bulletin board of the future.
How I built it
I used google app engine, twilio, python and wolfram alpha
Challenges I ran into
bugs... so many bugs
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
It works somewhat
What I learned
So much python
What's next for Aogra
I'm going to turn this into a full product, less of a bare bones demo and something that will let communities everywhere make message boards of the future easily.
