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.
