The upcoming elections

What it does

This web app is a visual representation of tweets related to presidential candidates by state, and sorts tweets based on the presence of positive/negative keywords

How I built it

Ruby on Rails, jquery

Challenges I ran into

api's weren't so friendly (impossible without planning ahead)

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

We came in without any idea of what to do and left with a fully-functioning web app

What I learned

We learned about using kmls with Google Maps

What's next for Applections

Move to Silicon Valley, make it big and retire in 5 years
