Joe, Noah, and Quentin were all frustrated by the four hour drive to get to tribeHacks. We figured others must feel the same, and created a solution to this problem!
What it does
It will allow hackers to drop pins on a map for whichever hackathons they are attending, and see others who have dropped pins. Each pin offers an email address, and whether or not the person is looking for a ride, or offering to drive others nearby. In this version, people will email each other to set up carpools.

What's next for rideHacks
The next step will be removing and moving pins. Next, we hope to implement features such as allowing users to send email requests by clicking on the info windows, drawing paths that will say how far out of the way picking someone up would be, and make the project more aesthetically pleasing overall. Also, security is a definite must looking forward, due to the nature of the information being stored. Calculating route distances, to determine who is and is not out of the way within a reasonable margin, as well as revenue calculation would all be great features to add.
