We are musicians who love to drink - playing music takes up a lot of our time, so we needed some way to minimise the amount of time we spend going on pub crawls, while still having a great time. This is where Bendr comes in!

What it does

Bendr uses a constrained travelling alcoholic (salesman) algorithm to calculate the optimum path between bars, so you can spend more time enjoying yourself and having drinks with your friends (or by yourself if you need to drown in your sorrows), instead of spending that time walking around inefficiently.

If you’re not into alcohol though, not to worry! Bendr has a second function - a coffee mode! Instead of bars, you can go on a coffee crawl!

How we built it

Challenges we ran into

Uber API authentication

Accomplishments that we're proud of

It looks really cool - the UI is intuitive and simple enough to use for any level of intoxication! Furthermore the oauth2 Uber integration took a long time to get working, so we’re really proud of it.

What we learned
