Share code real time with developers


  • Heroku makes it easy to deploy in minutes and it's free for one dyno.


  • Firebase made it really easy to do two things. 1) Store the shared code developers were sharing 2) Make it real-time simply by including some of their JS libraries. The reason I built CodeShare was to try out Firebase.


  • This was my first Node.js app. You could call it experimental. I also used Express.


  • Using Mixpanel to track events tells me what language users are switching to, what the most popular themes are and how often users are starting video chats. It also gives me a tool to experiment quickly with "fake" buttons and see if users click them. This enables me to validate the need for new features before fully building them out.


  • When I pushed Codeshare it was very much (and still is) MVP. UserVoice gave me a quick and free way to gather feedback from active users and helped prioritize feature requests.
