Helping to hire designers with designchallenge.io

Started a little (well, maybe not exactly that little, given that it wasn’t as quick as I’ve thought) project with my friends to aid the designer positions candidate pre-interview screening through several simple challenges, akin to what hackerrank, codility etc. do for software developers – for now https://designchallenge.io/ serves only a landing page, but we will hopefully publish more functionality soon-ish.

Tech-wise it’s been (and it still is) a good exercise on Node.js + Express + Vue.js + Typescript stack, which I was only vaguely familiar with before, and also on using cloud providers like Heroku to deploy and host everything (well, not exactly everything, as images need to be hosted on S3 or some other storage provider). Quite a lot of knowledge gain, but quite a lot of fun too!
