Get tweets on demand through text messages
I worked on a web application where you could get the latest tweet about your favorite hashtag just through text messages. I made an interface for it where you could also see the tweet being researched for from a list of the latest tweets where you get the one in the top of the list texted to your phone. I used technologies such as nodeJS, ExpressJS and npm for the first time and I had no idea how to use them before. That is why I am a big fan of hackathons. I was able to create an application that (could get some improvement but) plays a role in the awareness of individuals in areas with less connectivity to the web.
