A word of thanks to my former co-worker (@jhnbrnn) for kicking off this project and providing the foundation that I built off of.
I worked on this because I wanted to build something useful that would give me an opportunity to experiment with working with socket.io (real-time communication), and Overmind (app state management), which were libraries I was curious about.
This project is experimental and does not always highlight best practices for building a production web app. That being said, I welcome pull requests against it to help improve it!
I look forward to receiving your ideas to make it better!
