This medium article written by my teammate Alex Silver is a great overview of how we made this project.
This project was the product of a hackathon called WhatTheHack, organized by Cyril Garcia and Ting Becker. The idea was to code a fully functioning app in 24 hours and present it to our peers. I managed to join a really cool team made up of (twitter handles) @silvr, @Ezra_Black_, and @nedimcodes. We got together and organized our idea before the event started, so we could spend as much time coding as possible.
