HackCU Hackathon

Location Based Chatting

With WhereUchat we want to enable people to connect with other people around them, in real time. Our team has implemented a web-based application. Our application takes in the name of the user as well as the radius around him he wants to listen to. We are detecting the exact location of the user in near real-time.

Challenges our team faced: We started with a very ambitious idea. Our team took our time to cut the scope of the application to actually build a MVP. All of us used backbone.js for the first time which less of an obstacle and more of a learning experience.

Future Scope: Starting with an ambitious perspective has given us vision to design an efficient project design that can be scaled-up in the future. For eg. we could add more features in the future like private user messages, chat rooms.
