SQL query to get the most popular movies in Munich


UX of the home screen of a cinema app

The goal
“Show users relevant movies near him”

Original process
1. Brainstorm a solution
2. Implement on API
3. Implement on Frontend
4. See if we like it

After 3 iterations we were still unhappy with the results.
And each iteration took 4 weeks.

New approach
1. We imported the database to a big query.
2. The project manager and client played with the queries until they were happy.
