We rank coding bootcamps. 📊


I developed a web app (still in BETA) that ranks coding bootcamps based on social and rating score based on data crawled from various sites (LinkedIn, Twitter, Yelp, Course Report, Facebook, AngelList, Google+, etc.) using Cheerio and the MEAN stack.This project was completed on August 11th, 2015 for the Stackathon phase of Fullstack Academy.
