My final project is a paintball meetup web application. I wanted to create an application that lets people connect with other paintball players and also lets them host paintballing events themselves. I accomplished these goals by adding a chat, utilizing Stream API, and by using Google Maps API to convert the user’s address they enter upon account creation to latitude and longitude coordinates. I then displayed all of the users that are currently hosting an event near you on a map, so a user can see what events are going on around them, as well as details like start/end time, date, weather(utilizing Weather API) and the host’s profile information/picture. After reading a host’s reviews, a user can pay for the event using Stripe API. I used React for the front end of the application, along with Bootstrap and CSS to make the site aesthetically pleasing. I stored all user, hosting, and review data in a MySQL database and made queries using Python and Django REST Framework.
