My inspiration for Polar comes from personal experience. I have always enjoyed making new friends connecting with people and I want to use technology to help with that!
What it does
Polar helps connect people based on interest using bluetooth energy to find users nearby.
How I built it
I used react native, facebook-login-api, firebase, and core bluetooth
Challenges I ran into
DEPENDENCIES! I learned a lot about managing a product that requires a ton of dependencies.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I was able to overcome all of the bugs and dependency issues
What I learned
Stay focused and keep trying. I ran into a lot of bugs and issues but pushed through and I am glad I did!
What's next for Polar
I want to add filters for meeting people for friends, dating, or networking. I also wish to add some games to make the ice breakers even more fun!
