Our senior project involved creating a simple dating application and service. From other dating applications, we observed that the logistics of scheduling a first date are a tedious way to start a conversation with someone you've never met. The main concept of our application was that it would use user schedule availability and their favorite cafes to automatically plan optimal dates.

We started the project with the intent of...

  • Working through the entire development cycle of a large project as a team

  • Devising techniques for determining overlapping preferences, especially when handling large amounts of location and time data

  • Exploring different languages, tools and frameworks, especially involving web front-ends and native mobile apps

  • Gaining a brief glimpse of what it would be like to be an entrepreneur promoting a new product
