San Francisco Hot Events
Lists events in San Francisco using meetup.com 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 meetup.com to be quite noisy and lacking features so I implemented a better interface.
A periodic lambda job on AWS polls the meetup.com API and updates an index on Algolia. The frontend to the webapp is hosted on AWS cloudfront / S3 and connects to algolia.
