The Economists


The limitations of the current polling mechanisms inspired us to create something new.

What it does

It polls the YouTube audience by analyzing comments for related videos.

How I built it

We built it with Youtube API to provide the data, Node JS to provide the server backbone, and web sockets to convey information back to the client.

Challenges I ran into

Making the youtube api respond and setting up the web sockets on heroku proved really tough and time-consuming.

Accomplishments that I'm proud of

I'm proud of now being able to use the youtube api and use web sockets on heroku.

What I learned

I learned teamwork and time management.

What's next for Youtube Polls

Better analysis techniques as well as more and better data.
