I am looking to make a website for a startup business that I am working on. The boiled down premise and the idea for the website i want to build is the idea of making a website that can integrate accounts that can be matched to each other based on certain characteristics and parameters from within each account. The most similar thing I can think of is the idea behind Tinder. While I am not looking to create a service that you need to "swipe right" on each account one at a time.
The other part for it once there are accounts is that they can be matched based on similarity. This will take an algorithm I assume. I don't know how to code this sort of an algorithm but I was thinking there may be some sort of open source code?
Hopefully my idea makes sense. I would love some input, advice, or direction from anyone who is willing to lend a hand or their two cents.
