When we were freshmen, we wished we had an application that matched us based on interest and location to other dorms. So, we created a web application that does just that.
What it does
Our application consists of a questionnaire that freshmen fill out with their major, dorm, and interests, and runs the data through our algorithm that matches them to other freshmen based on percentages calculated from similar interests, majors, and dorms.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Learning the Microsoft Graph API
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Learning a significant amount of SQL, including making functions and performing our algorithms on the database server in SQL.
What we learned
APIs can be complex to learn while also learning more about multiple languages in the span of 48 hours.
What's next for Freshman Friend Finder
We're going to try to implement an API that allows mail to be sent easier and in a nicer format that we have currently.
