My First Web App Deployed – Meeting Cost
It’s a very exciting time at MyAppIncome HQ as I’ve just deployed my very first app – http://meetingcost.myappincome.co.uk!
It’s only a web based app, but has been styled by Bootstrap so should work on a mobile browser too.
The Problem Solved
I spend a lot of time in meetings and I’m constantly surprised by how much time is “wasted”. Turning up late; turning up unprepared; no agenda; participants no contributing anything for hours; the list goes on.
I don’t know the source, but I once read something like
I’m not allowed to order £10 of stationary but I can call a meeting of 10 people for 2 hours and no-one blinks
“Meeting Cost” is a simple app to show the powers that be what a meeting actually costs.
This is a simple React.js app built using the React Slingshot boilerplate by Cory House. No redux, no react-router just vanilla React.js. I haven’t used React-Bootstrap, instead opting for a simple CSS file included in index.html.
The most “interesting” thing is the use of form-serialize for form submission. I plan to write a small article about that soon.
Obviously that app isn’t going to change the world, but it was fun building it and I learned a lot. I plan to make this my “Hello World” of new technologies, I.e. migrate this first when I start React-Native or Xamarin.
