What I built

GoNotify is a service that can be used to send notifications to yourself in the form of WhatsApp messages. For example, you can use this to send yourself notifications if a build fails in the CI, etc. This service extracts out the logic behind maintaining various contacts, managing them into groups, and sending them messages. GoNotify provides you with a simple WebUI and API to manage the phone numbers and groups, and send them notifications.

Category Submission: Engaging Engagements

GoNotify can easily be leveraged by a business to send notifications to its customers and employees without much hassle.

How I built it

I started learning Go recently and this seemed like an ideal opportunity to gain some good experience with the language. It was pretty challenging and fun. I used Gin as it seemed like a mature web framework to me. The front-end was built using ReactJS as I am quite familiar with it.
