Given our main project failed, we decided to try to find a way completely unthinkable to use Skyscanner's API, and so, we decided to use it for something completely unrelated to the company.
What it does
The developed python library provides a function that generates random numbers, basing its entropy on the fluctuations of the answers of the prizing API.
How we built it
import randscanner value = randscanner.random() #Returns a random floating point number in [0, 1) print(value)
Challenges we ran into
Developing everything on the last 4 hours of the hackathon, and Python.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We learned a lot of data processing on the first project, and a lot about random number generation on this project.
What we learned
Not Python :D
What's next for RandScanner
Being lost and forgoten at the bottom of our github :D
