How it works

  • Grabs a list of friends and people you follow from Facebook and GitHub
  • Allows you to follow them on ChallengePost from the same page, or check out their profiles more in-depth

Challenges I ran into

  • Rate limiting from APIs
  • Invalid OAuth tokens
  • The subtle differences between friends and followers

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

  • Not making a complete mess of the code base in the process

What I learned

  • How to use the Facebook and GitHub APIs using a couple of really good Ruby Gems
  • Lots of stuff related to caching

What's next for ChallengePost: Find Friends

  • It's a secret! But more improvements are on the way.
