Inspiration

News is interesting. Especially where it happens.

What it does

Shows you a variety of different cities or regions to choose from, and grabs the latest news stories happening in those areas.

How we built it

We started with a simple Express app, built up the Google Maps functionality, created dynamic WebHose queries, and displayed the data.

Challenges we ran into

Lots! We spent a lot of time working out Google Maps, structuring our WebHose queries, and routing. So much routing.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

It works! We had to learn a lot of different techniques for manipulating data and DOM elements, but it was fun!

What we learned

How to have fun. And Javascript!

What's next for Geo News

Performance optimizations, better queries / results, style!
