When Do You Come?

A Startup Weekend 2013 Bratislava project, this application has been designed to track the position of a user, holding his/her smartphone, going to a specific location. On the other end of the application is another user, seeing estimated time till the first user arrives at the specified place. With the help of a nice web interface.

Why?

We developed this project as a proof of concept application in which a web browser and Geolocation API can be used to track phone's location (GPS or network based). The origianl idea belongs to Martin Polacko who invited @lamosty, @darjanin and @TomasJendek to implement his idea as a part of a Startup Weekend event in Bratislava, Slovakia.

We accomplished the goal in two and a half days with not much of a sleep but happy nonetheless, winning the second place, with a working MVP.

Technology

We didn't have much time for tech speculation so we went the classical road: Ruby on Rails for the backend and CoffeeScript compiled to JS for the frontend (Geolocation API).

Current State

After winning the contest, we unfortunately stopped our work on the app. Its website was shut down and only thing that left was a Bitbucket git repo. I decided to open source it so here it is. If you are in a good mood, you can deploy the app and play with it. If you do, send me a link please so I can put it here.
