We don't have any friends, especially on the first day of class. To escape depression and meet some cool ppl, we built this app.
What it does
Basically finds people in your surrounding area (aka room) via Robin's Beacon and then creates a group chat with all the members of the room. This eliminates the need to add members to the group, since everyone in the room gets an invite via email to join the chat room.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We've never really built anything using APIs so just getting used to that was a challenging task. Working at the front end and the backend simultaneously was a difficult task as well, since we had to coordinate who did what. Setting up an automated email service also held us back for a bit.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
What we learned
What's next for robin-chat-hackumass
$10,000 per day? :P Nah more like add ons, multiple chat rooms, better chat interface, and much more security!
