Aldo Vs. McGregor

Built in Isobar - 2015

A web appliction developed as part of Now Lab at Isobar. The purpose of the project was to investigate new technologies and develop a web application to generate excitement for an upcomming UFC title fight between Jose Aldo and Conor McGregor.

The application was built using PHP and the Twitter API. Users used the application to give their prediction via Twitter on who would win the fight, how they would win, what round and what time the fight would finish.

The application search Twitter for tweets containing the applications hashtag (#aldovsmcgregorpredictor) and stored the results in a MySQL database. When the fight was over the web application switched over to show statistics and a breakdown of the predictions including how many people predicted it correctly.
