I am developing an event sharing application that I planned to to release soon in the App Store. This event sharing application will recommend weekly local events to the user based on their location and preferences. This event sharing app is tailored to the African-American culture. Currently, the app supports the following types of events: HipHop, Historically Black Colleges, Food, Fitness, Fashion, and Festivals. Currently only two cities will be supported. Atlanta, Georgia and Charlotte, NC. Both are in the United States....
Now that you have background on the app, I am looking for quality structured and unstructured data to feed the app. I am currently using firebase and mongodb to store data. So I will need the data that is scraped and/or crawled from the web to be extracted and stored in JSON format so that it is easliy portable to mongo or firebase.
Idea places to look for data will be eventbrite, facebook, twitter, instagram.. etc..
If this works out like I hope it will, I will need data on a weekly basis.
I am not a data scientist nor do I play one on television, so if you have any better suggestions or advice then I am all ears.
