What it does
Nearby Minds is a Google Chrome extension that connects you to interesting people at the events you attend. Utilizing graph theory and Facebook API, it displays new people that you might be interested to talk to in a noninvasive suggestion box. Our main goal was to integrate this functionality in a seamless way, and by creating a Chrome extension, we have been able to achieve that.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
Because of Facebook's various optimizations, it was difficult to create the Facebook extension, but we have been able to implement it seamlessly with the Facebook experience.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
Working with Facebook API and Parse, creating the seamless experience with the extension, and, of course, the algorithm that powers it all.
What we learned
We all learned many things about web development, working with APIs, and creating web browser extensions.
What's next for Nearby Minds
Publishing our Chrome extension to the Chrome Store!
