Accomplishments that we're proud of

I'm proud of the goals we set and reached as a team.

I'm also proud of what we did with Twilio, Google Cloud and Domain.Com.

What we learned

We learned how to use ESRI APIs, how to use MongoDB, how to use American Airlines Engine API, and we also learned to work on an ambitious project with such a short amount of time.   

What's next for Skyrt

There is a lot of room to scale the application. We reached our objectives that we set at the beginning of the competition, but we also see adding options for personalizing restaurants and developing a neural network for new flights paths and vacation spots.
