ILWHack 2014 - Backend Server
- Push to OpenShift server (either RedHat Butt or private Origin instance) with a Python 2.7 cartridge.

- AngusP (Development)
- hamhut1066 (Development)
- A3gis (Development)
- Malyatrax (Assets/Tea, Coffee, Snacks provisioning & Logo)
Is it any good?
Ideas for future improvements
- Email notifications when cheap flights to see your friends
- Personalized discounts
- Graph of world's places/airports based on social data. With direct access to skyscanner's database and more time we could build a graph for each user (i.e. node-weight based on friends who live there, edge-weight based on price) and run more complex algorithms on it such as pathfinding etc.
- Take into account more data (friend's relative importance, hometowns (wanna visit the hometown of you best friend XXX? I'm sure you would have a lot to talk about!), recommendation based on places already visited, collaborative filtering, etc.
- Price optimization (taking into account earth trajects)
- Facebook friends with benefits (notifications when friends interested in your sex change their relationship status to single)
- Candy-crush flights
- Lots of other cool shits
