I saw a lot of my friends joining lots of events recently on facebook that mostly focused on parties and free food
What it does
Gives a list of events happening on around Rutgers Campuses that basically offer free stuff.
How I built it
I first found all the places that can offer me data about events going on. Mostly facebook had all the Rutgers organizations so I look through each organisation's upcoming events and finds the one that offer free stuff. Same thing with other data sources.
Challenges I ran into
Figuring out the data sources
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
My knowledge on using api's. Working with asynchronous code.
What I learned
How to use Facebook Graph Api
What's next for RU_EVENT_FINDER
App that gives a map of the campus and each event's location pinned on it.
