Hobby Scale: Making Web Apps with Minimal Fuss


Sometimes I want to make an app where people can fight over which color is the best, make an app that lets me draw ascii art with friends on a shared canvas, or replace the lousy Q&A app we use during work meetings.

In the past I wouldn't bother with these kinds of simple one-off ideas. The amount of time spent setting up server infrastructure, managing databases, writing deploy scripts, and many other details required to host a web app meant I'd usually lose interest before even getting to writing the app itself.

But it doesn't have to be that way! In this talk I'll show you those apps (and several others), and how I made them with little effort using the Elm language and the Lamdera framework.
