We swipe left and right to find love (or whatever); why not use the same concept of matching via shared interests to find new friends? That's the genius idea behind local tech developer Chandra Arthur's Friendish app, which she shortcuts as "a Platonic Tinder." In July, she was chosen to appear on Apple's Planet of the Apps, a Shark Tank-style web series that matches developers with industry mentors. Between this and Arthur's sizzling TEDx talk on how much time female and POC entrepreneurs have to spend code-switching, we'd say it's clear we have a rising star on our hands.
