We are two noobie doobies to Node.js. Both of us are actually professional Ruby on Rails programmers who don't want to be left behind in new technologies.
Search for an upcoming movie, video game, TV show or music album and add a notification to your calendar to remind you its release date.
You see a trailer to a great new movie and you immediately feel the desire to see the movie as soon as it's published. But how is one supposed to keep track of all these great future events? By writing it down? Nah. By manually creating an event in one's calendar? Hell no, we are programmers. NotifyME will do all the heavy lifting for you. All you have to do is go to our website, search for your desired item, click a button to add it to your calendar and ... BOOM. You are done.
NotifyME uses Google Knowledge Graph API to allow users to find a specific item as quickly as possible. The search only considers movies, TV shows, video games and music albums.
Selected item (or an entity to be more specific) is then passed to Wikidata in a SPARQL query with a simple goal - to get publication date for given item.
The release dates are then presented to user, who can easily adds a notification to her or his calendar.
We intend to integrate NotifyME with other APIs in order to fill in for Wikidata and cover more domains (e.g. books, board games, etc.)

It really is very useful for those who like to keep up to date on the releases. I found it very simple to use.
If you want, you can try our entry too, your opinion will be welcomed!
The site looks good and the instant search is nice and snappy. You seem to have a good handle on react + material ui and building for frontend. It wasn't clear to me what the node portion of the site would be doing, other than serving the files. It was also hard to do general notifications (e.g. Star Wars) since everything is broken down by individual movie/event. A cool feature would be to pick a topic and get notified of anything related to that topic.
