A brief, but noble collection of my hackathon projects.
Mila 2.0 – 2nd Place
Without any client support available, I had to go solo. I decided to use this opportunity to learn something I've always been interested in, animation. I created a couple animations of my muse Mila and imported them into our company Slack channel. Tbh my dog is kind of a big deal in the office, so the win actually belongs to her.
Glance – 2nd Place
Using Foursquare's API to track/organize data and leveraging device geo-location, we built a feature that matched users based on their local and social interactions. This feature, which we called Glance, offered users a more optimized selection of suitors.
Photo Concierge – 1st Place
Users often struggle to select the perfect photo for their dating profile. To assist them with this important dating decision point, we created a feature that would help users select the best profile photo based on the social interactions in their Facebook photo album. The logic was simple, the photo that generates the most social traffic (likes) is placed in the first slot of your dating profile library. This first photo slot, because your default profile photo. This feature, can help existing users organize their dating photo library, or help new users import their most likable library.
