I wanted to build this app because I think opportunities to bring people together safely is invaluable today. I hope I can give people the opportunity to video call each other to help solve problems and build cool stuff.

How I built it

This application is composed of a full TypeScript stack. I've used ReactJS for the front-end and Express and TypeORM on the back-end. Additionally the application interfaces with a PostgreSQL database. Digital Ocean's App Platform made it extremely easy to get the entire stack running and to deploy new iterations of my application for other people to try.
