Sometimes in life, you just need to give that pitch or speech on the fly and you don't really have great supporting images. Modern day standards for good presentations dictate that the speech itself have more content than your powerpoint. No one wants to read your bulletpoints as you read them aloud.
What it does
Gifly generates relevant images for your presentation on the fly.
How we built it
We take your voice. We transcribe it with IBM Bluemix. We query GIPHY. We return that gif. You profit.
Challenges we ran into
Learning node.js as we went. Callbacks and such. So bloody annoying.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
GIPHY API is, well, exactly what one would expect from GIPHY.
What's next for Gifly
It'll run fact checks and background checks, live relevant news on the fly also.
