Backend from TypeScript to Kotlin. Making Web UI.

Igor Kononuchenko @kigorw
  • spent some time learning Kotlin (Java was very verbose) and JVM dev environment

  • made feature parity with the TypeScript version. This time project, UX felt like magic as forwarding was instant.

  • started web interface

My original specialization is Front-end, so here I felt a real flow. I tried to use some external component libraries on top of React to built UI. But I mostly ended up implementing my components.

Any way this phase took a long time as building interfaces is not a fast process. I spent around 500 hours on UI.

  • made backend dashboards
  • created CI tasks
  • showed to couple of friends demo, found some bugs immediately (took couple of weeks to fix them all)
