Training need for finance students and investors.
What it does
It tracks the real stock prices with the help of blackrock APIs. Customer can register account with email / google, then perform a series of transactions to real stocks with virtual money.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
All those API traffic need to be done asynchronously. We wrote a plenty of ECMAScript with promise operation to handle those operations carefully.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
This is the first time for us to hack a full-stack project in 36 hours! We really love this hackathon.
What we learned
Have a look at the third party APIs, their service may not be exactly what you want!
What's next for Mock Trading
Many things to do: better UI, scalability, and so on.
