What I built:
Challe was a simple app for discovering and completing challenges with friends. It was written in Swift and Node.js and consisted of:
- Challe iOS
- Challe Backend – monorepo of AWS Lambda and MongoDB Atlas serverless functions
Ultimately, Challe had a New Year’s resolution problem: there was a large disparity between how excited users were about the idea of using Challe and how much they ended up actually doing so. It failed to gain meaningful traction and I eventually shut it down.
