We're running a hackathon with DEV and DigitalOcean for December 10 - January 10. This is a great opportunity to force ourselves to build the projects we've been wanting to build.
I'll be spending this hackathon building and streaming on Twitch. Here's the things I want to build:
- Personal Site/Portfolio (Blog)
- New Side Project Site (Blog)
- Vue URL Shortener (App)
- Wedding Site for me and Kapehe's upcoming marriage! (Site)
All of these apps will be deployed to DigitalOcean's App Platform. The cool thing about App Platform is that we can deploy a backend (API or CMS), a database, and a frontend (React/Vue) all in one place.
Let's take a deeper dive into how I'll be building each of these.
I've done some research building out App Platform projects with Strapi and Next.js and also with Laravel and React
I'll be using a Django API and Vue for the frontend. I'm using Vue here to switch things up and try something that isn't React. A hackathon is a great place to try out new technologies!
Lots of fun to happen in December and I'm excited I finally get to finish out some projects I've wanted to do for a while now. Join me by checking out the hackathon.
