Inspiration

Sometimes, you've just got to go. But it's hard to do that if you need to spend hours deciding where, then searching through flights. We've built a tool that simplifies the process of choosing and searching into one simple platform.

What it does

We provide a simple, easy-to-use interface where all you need to do is enter your starting airport and how much money you'd like to spend on a ticket. The site then searches through JetBlue's database of lowest fares to compile an interactive map of all the places you can go. All that's left to do is choose one!

How we built it

We started by making a local server with node.js from which to run the site––on the server, we create and store our data tables with mySQL. The front-end and user interaction use a combination of html, CSS, and JavaScript along with the Google Maps API.

Challenges we ran into

Both of us are relatively new to web development, so setting up the server in instrumenting the UI was challenging but fun!

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're proud of interfacing between front-end and back-end, as well as the ability to display flight data in an interesting way.

What's next for JetSetGo

The sky's the limit!
