Ever tried to coordinate going to a restaurant with friends? The hassle of finding a location that's close to everyone while pleasing everybody's personal preferences and juggling food allergies/restrictions is near-impossible. That's where our web app, Let's Eat, comes in.
What it does
This app takes user location and restaurant preferences and cross-references eating locations in the area to find the best match restaurant for any group looking to have a great meal. It will make its suggestion based off of the center-most location from all members followed by top preferences with exceptions made for Gluten Free, Vegetarian and Vegan diets.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Considering the sheer number of server calls, be it storing local Facebook information to sending JSON packets to YELP and Google, it was surprising that we were even capable of making each page communicate with another at all.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
None of us were/are web developers, so learning a large quantity of APIs and languages was a real achievement.
What we learned
See above. It really was an amazing experience, and we hope to learn more.
What's next for Let's Eat
Hopefully, a Mobile App will come out in the future!
