Scrapes upcoming BMCC events from the BMCC events calendar onto an embedded Google Maps iframe using Flask, Requests, and Google Maps API
How I built it
Challenges I ran into
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Wrangling the Google Maps API
What I learned
Using Flask + Jinja2 to pass the returned object of a Python function that scrapes the actual data.
What's next for Team Lucky's Event Mapper
Personalized events, with weighted tags determining what the users sees based on their presubmitted preferences during registration. Partner integration with other CUNY events, and club meetups, business events, etc. Marker manipulation based on user info such as distance, time, etc. More personalized features w/ a user profile. Networking features, able to check into BMCC events and view other users who checked into an event.
