We wanted to create an interactive way to meet people in small groups and during the beginning of HackUPC a "bingo" game was announced were you had to find people with a certain characteristics. This was our inspiration and we decided that we wanted a easy way to know people with our mobile phones instead.
What it does
It allows you to get to know more people by asking some questions and forcing you to talk to people to get those answers.
How we built it
We had 3 courses of action:
- First, design the web interface using
- Second, create the server API to create/edit the questions. The server was created in
- Third, create the database
Challenges we ran into
We wanted to discover new technologies so we began using
python 3 with
Flask that we had never used. That took us many time in learning the library and how to build an html site.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We were able to sort out many of the difficulties (specially to be able to run Flask) and each of us faced a new programming language and library of which we had little knowledge.
What we learned
We learned a lot of teamwork and how to balance the load. Also, it was interesting learning new technologies.
What's next for SocialQuiz
We are hoping to port our app to Android and improve the GUI
