I wanted to be able to build a bot that could take decisions for the group. I always hated that we could never agree peacefully to go to a particular place.
What it does
The bot fetches results from Google Places API and then using voting from users, it decides a place for them. You can search for food places, adventure sports, etc.
How I built it
I built it by using google places API and the documentation provided for the challenge.
Challenges I ran into
It is difficult to return the results of the polling as AWS lambda kept timing out.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Built my first Slack bot :D
What I learned
Learned about new technologies.
What's next for tripster
I completed it very less time. The code and the logic needs to be updated.
