My passion for gaming can get in the way of productivity. So, I decided to work on a project that would redirect that passion into something that could benefit something better like my health. I was recently informed of Strava's API and decided to the death collected over thousands of athletes to try and create and innovative game.
What it does
Using an athlete's data from Strava, a person can upload their data to the game and the game uses that data to determine one's fitness. Then, an avatar of yourself with your fitness data can be used to compete in survival games with other players.
Challenges I ran into
Having not dealt with API's before, I found it quite difficult to actually send requests for my data.
