we wanted to create a smarter way to take notes, especially for educational videos.

How it works

a chrome extension that creates a popup when you open a YouTube video. the popup disappears when you move the mouse off the screen.

Challenges I ran into

learning how to make chrome extensions and understanding javascript asynchrony

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

working together with four other people to make one vision come true. organically improving the project goal from a simple popup, to an entire commenting ecosystem.

What I learned

how to better work together as a team. how to use callback functions to handle javascript asynchrony

What's next for PinPoint

using Firebase to create collaborative commenting: seeing community comments in real-time
