Our team is from Oulu, Finland. :-)
Online dating website with a focus on group discussions instead of face to face dating.
We wanted to create a social media site for single people to meet other people. Instead of private chats, our service is all about group discussions.
Postgres with JSON document storage client (nor-nopg), angular.js, restangular, angular UI router.
Voting is now closed.
Our idea is still missing one key element: active users. We need to figure out how to activate our users on the site in our future versions.
There was a problem with our database server which was the reason why our app was so slow. It has been fixed now! :)
The fact that we had a real graphics/UX designer this year in our team surely is noticeable. We couldn't have done design like that without Dennis. :)
Our idea was that you participate in discussions, play small games, make tests, share links (and talk about those), etc with other singles in a group. Sadly we didn't have time to implement all of that.
I've done this type of "dating" on local social media sites and I thought that the online dating world is still missing this kind of dedicated online service. I've got matches on Tinder just because I was known from this type of group discussions.
We had an idea that we'll make some kind of smart feed which would give you more topics that share something about someone you might match with. However that didn't end up in our entry.
There is also support for liking other people but our current implementation doesn't show if you both like each other -- yet. We meant to implement it but didn't have time to finish it.
