I liked the look of SkyScanner's API, and was interested in making an app that interfaced with it. Then I thought about expanding it, and adding payments using CapitalOne's Nessie API.

What it does

Searches for flights from the desired location to destination, finding prices. It then lists the quotes supplied, and completes a payment via the Nessie API.

How I built it

This app was written from the ground up in C#. It comprises of 2 libraries, an UWP app, and a Test project.

Challenges I ran into

The SkyScanner API required a lot of models to be built for deserialisation of the data

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

Managing to get the live flight data from SkyScanner working

What I learned

How to keep the UI responsive even during long-running requests in the background
