I created Rock My Map for the 2019 MongoDB World Hackathon
. I love live music and going to shows, however have never had the luxury of “going on tour” with a band. But I can still dream and viewing a bands tour on a map could be the next best thing. I like mapping data and MongoDB works great for geospatial data sets like a bands tour. It could also be great for tour managers 🙂
I wanted to learn React and Meteor pub/sub integration with MongoDB. I started by adding SetlistFM API queries and caching those in MongoDB. I then added historical weather from Dark Sky to help bring back some memories if it was a show you went to.
