We like data analytics. We liked the idea of playing with stock data. I really wanted to dabble in d3.
What it does
It's a stock analytics and visualization tool.
How I built it
We hosted everything from the app to the database on AWS. We used ajax and d3.js to make it a responsive web app.
Challenges I ran into
Team schisms Setup and forgetting how things worked/how syntax was
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We made it as a pair even though teams are normally 4 in size.
What I learned
Ajax (an older version of Angular) php5 (a more terse version of Python web frameworks) D3 is awesome and very powerful
What's next for StockOverflow
