Dungeon Finder replaced tediously spamming the general chat in World of Warcraft with LFG. Well life is my WoW now and I'm back to looking for people and parties the old fashioned way so why not replace that legacy function with a spiffy new app :)
What it does
It opens social borders by giving hosts a chance to invite people they don't know to their events (we're building filtering algorithms to try and make the guests as compatible to the host group as possible). Alternatively you can request an invite to events happening close by.
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Async issues, compatibility issues and random bugs in web interface / phone / recording app.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
What's next for Fungeon Finder
Just keep watching and find out. The weekend wasn't enough time to get the app up to production level but it showed us what sort of problems we would need to deal with moving forward and gave us an excellent starting point.
