San Francisco Hot Events

San Francisco Hot Events

Lists events in San Francisco using API. Allows filtering by events which are almost full, are popular, have food, have drinks or are of a particular category.


While in San Francisco I found that I missed out on a bunch of great events as they were already at full capacity. I found to be quite noisy and lacking features so I implemented a better interface.


A periodic lambda job on AWS polls the API and updates an index on Algolia. The frontend to the webapp is hosted on AWS cloudfront / S3 and connects to algolia.
