I often forget the name of the person I've recently met at an event, or at work. Sometimes I have to look them up on LinkedIn to remember their name. This idea came from the need for people to form a closer relationship with each other when we're attending the same event, or work at the same company.
What it does
Enter the event code and sign up via LinkedIn. Once you sign up, you can see people in your org with their LinkedIn profile pictures
How I built it
The backend of the app is written in Node.js, front end is React. Deployed on Heroku.
Challenges I ran into
LinkedIn restricted access to API developers so we have to go through vetting process to get someone's public profile link.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Finishing the app by the deadline.
What I learned
How to split up work between people you've just met.
What's next for TeamJoy
Interview users and ask what their use cases are.
