Building my app in public day 001

I’ve had the idea for my app back in may of 2020. But I postponed it several times for a lot of reasons. Yesterday I stumbled upon the #100DaysOfTechStartup on twitter as I saw a tweet by Tech Hustler and I decided it was a good way to motivate myself. Even though I am a bit scared to built in public, I want to go with it.

So today marks day 1 of my 100 days challenge.

The product

The Stack

The backend will be a standard REST Api build on node.js Either express or fastify. The data is be stored in a mongo database. There will also be a socket implementation based upon socket.io. Like the frontend the backend will also use typescript of course.

For the mockups I use Adobe XD since I am familiar with it from using it in my day job. The backend will be deployed in docker containers on a virtual server I rent from strato.

What’s next?

I can’t wait to be finally able to use the product myself and receive feedback from people. Want to follow my journey? Then follow me here or on my twitter @natension

I’m looking forward to your comments! If you have any ideas, tips, or just want to say hi, feel free, to do so here or on my twitter!

Let’s build something awesome!
