We were faced with the task of having to communicate with the HackTJOfficial account over various social media websites. This inspired us to create an app to consolidate various diverse social media sources, to create M3RGE.
How it works
M3RGE acts as an API for the different social media networks while using Temboo, an accessor for the APIs, it then sends a request using the client IDs given to the registered developers IDEs.
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Being able to learn new computing languages and become relatively proficient in them.
What I learned
That time management is very important in a hackathon. Planning also makes the process run much more smoothly.
What's next for M3RGE
We plan to improve M3RGE by implementing more complicated social networks into our app. Facebook is a very complicated social network to manipulate, as they have restricted their API.
