MayBot Search

Ever been to a hackathon alone and had trouble finding a team? Were you part of a team where a teammate bailed on you at the last minute? Fret not, MayBot has you covered! MayBot is a chat bot created at Fraser Hacks using Python and the Kik API. It was inspired by our teammate June who could not attend the hackathon at the last minute, so we created a chat bot on Kik that helps to connect teams and potential members! Users who are looking for a team can choose which roles they are willing to fill, and teams looking for members can post positions that they are looking to fill. MayBot then acts as Cupid and matches them based on quality of match!

Our Solution to The Problem with Hackathons

We have noticed a huge problem persistent in every hackathon, which is team formations. Generally, those who do not have teams going into a hackathon use the hackathon's Facebook event or its slack chat to find teams. However, this is not efficient as it takes time and effort to scroll through the hundreds of lonely hackers and decide which one of them is the best fit. We believe that MayBot has great potential to solve this problem and we can see huge demand for this. We've gotten a lot of positive feedback regarding our idea from peers and industry leaders alike! We can't wait to continue working on this project and connecting hackers across the world!
