A desire to relate news articles to current financial markets.
What it does
At this time, it takes a user-inputted stock ticker and then returns current stock information in a popup Google Chrome extension.
How I built it
Challenges we ran into
Lack of knowledge about web development. Inability to search for stock tickers by company name.
What we learned
Web development is a lot harder than it looks.
What's next for Stock Extension
Adding functionality to crawl a webpage for tickers and automatically load them up.
