Event chat on web
We wanted to crowdsource event discovery, by creating a social map. We let people find events around them and make plans by chatting with other people going there.
What it does
We created a social map, to find events and chat with people going there. Find the best food, music, and entertainment in your area. Discuss with your friends and other people attending or who are already there, all from our website!
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We ran into a frustrating issue with linking the infowindows to the actual location markers in our google maps implementation. The last infowindow was being linked to each marker, instead of having a seperate infowindow to each marker. We fixed it , however.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Proud of the design of the final product. We're proud that we didn't have to hardcode any data.
What we learned
How to use Cisco's Spark API to integrate group chat functionality into web applications.
What's next for hang|time
We plan to create filters to allow people to filter through available events.
