Our inspiration stemmed from our curiosity in app development, we wanted to build something that people could use and was centered around location.
What it does
RadiusChat is a location based chat service geared towards college students and local networking## How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We ran into many different problems over the course of the Hackathon, predominately the communications link between the client and the server, tracking and handling multiple client sessions, templatization, navigation with Ionic and working to the last second to make it work!
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are extremely proud of everything that we accomplished at Hack Illinois, we went into this project with a small understanding of application development and are walking away with the knowledge and ability to take the skills that we learned from Hack Illinois to further explore the continuation of RadiusChat.
What we learned
So much information! We have learned an extensive amount about app development, event driving programming, asynchronous programming, client-side and server-side programming and design, along with many teamwork and project development concepts.
What's next for RadiusChat
We plan to take the lessons and knowledge gathered from our experience here at Hack Illinois to further improve RadiusChat and explore other ideas in the app development world.
