Repository for HackCU Project Team JeNeSaisQuoi
We wanted to explore a big dataset and data visualization techniques. Luckily for us, we found a cool dataset provided by StockX, a footwear company.
How we did it
Our journey led us to create a web app that used node.js for the backend web framework, d3.js for data visualizations, and a host of web apis that could be found in the RapidAPI repository for additional features.
Challenges we ran into
Our initial plan was to host the dataset in Cloud Firestore, a database on the Google Cloud Platform. However, we ran into a lot of query performance and field-format issues. The field-format issues recurred again when we tried to set up a local mongodb collection.
