SBB Surprise Workshop along with ideas from SwissCom's Event Planner challenge
What it does
With minimal input from the user, the application finds a destination to a surprise location where trains have Super Saver tickets available at a highly discounted price.
How we built it
Using JS/React for the front-end and Python/Flask for the back end.
Challenges we ran into
CORS - having two servers (one each for the front and back end). Everyone working on the project were not familiar with Web Application development in the above technologies.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
The 'SBBe Crazy Meter' that selects a place without too much user input.
What we learned
All new technologies and working in a team.
What's next for "SB-Be Crazy!" (SBB Surprise)
Fix the algorithm to use Sygic Travel to match different places more appropriately.
