My Journey to Code

Completed My First Hackathon!

This past weekend I completed my first hackathon at MakerSquare.

Check out my group’s app at: tweet-o-phone.herokuapp.com 

The app is basically like a game of telephone through Twitter and Giphy. You give a word then Tweet-o-Phone searches Twitter for a tweet with that word. Then takes that tweet and chooses a random word from it to give to Giphy. The ouput is a hilarious gif that may or may not be related to your original search….so fun to see how things get translated through social media. 

We used the Twitter and Giphy Ruby gems. I have to say that the gems make it really easy to access the data you need. It was a blast!
