A video course learning platform
Before finding my first job in tech, I always thought that to grow my experience was necessary to make a bigger project, with front-end and back-end code. I thought to build a video course platform where people could add content in an admin interface, and then interact with it on the front web app.
How is made it?
- Firebase Firestore
- Firebase Auth
At the time I was interested to understand Apollo and GraphQL, for that the weird union of Firestore and Apollo.
Why I built it?
I built it to challenge my self on making a full web app with new technologies, developing the front end and the back end. Also, at that time I was intrigued to sell the product at some friends in the poker community (read about me to understand more).
Below a short video of how the admin app works and you can find the follow functionalities:
- Authentication (Firebase).
- Creation of new users.
- A profile section where each user can modify their credentials.
- The user receives an email with password and username.
- A section where upload and add new videos.
- The course creation, where the user can add different modules with a live preview component.
This is the front web app, where the end user can enjoy what the app offer, like a video and course library, with filters and a search bar component.
What I’ve learned?
I learned how to structure a big project. The most important lesson learned was how to don’t structure a project. Wrong decisions about the tech stack bring to unnecessary complexity. I could very well have just used Firebase Firestore API to query and mutate data.
You can follow me on Twitter, sometimes I write something meaningful.
