Background

With the pandemic, a lot of activites are going online. I wanted to build something that would help work collegues to interact, collaborate and share their ideas online.

How I built it

It is built in React and NodeJs.
It uses Socket.Io to handle the interactivity.
It is hosted on DigitalOcean App Platform. This was probably the easiest deployment I have ever made!

Additional Info

Also implemented video calls with PeerJs. But this has a few performace issues and bugs, so I've left it out for now.
I will fix these in due time.
