Inspiration

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 HTML, CSS and javascript
  • Second, create the server API to create/edit the questions. The server was created in Python3 using Flask.
  • 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
