What it does
You enter 2 twitter names and then you get a random tweet and you have to guess who it was that tweeted it
How we built it
Initially we wrote a functioning backend using ASP .NET core, however we ran into problems when trying to deploy to Azure. Hence we decided to rebuild it using Node.js and express which we deployed successfully to Heroku. Our frontend is a single page app powered by Vue.js
Challenges we ran into
Our attempts to deploy ASP .NET Core to a Microsoft Azure server failed which we were unable to fix. We eventually figured out how to get Vue.js 2.0 to work, having had to upgrade from version 1.x.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We did sleep briefly this year, following our own advice from last year.
Our MVP was ready more than a hour before the end of the hackathon.
