SXSW Attendees Top 10


The idea for this project by Gregory Mead and Jameel Syed was to:

  • use the preview Lanyrd API to find the twitter ids of attendees at SXSW
  • for each attendee find the artists that will be playing at SXSW that they follow
  • make a top ten of the most followed bands that will be playing

Unfortunately this resulted in only one band being found (Beats Antique)! We didn't demo this in the end :-)
