Project Background

When I was learning to code, I loved teaming up with people to create amazing applications using exciting new technologies. However, collaborating using git-based workflows can be overwhelming and frustrating for students and beginners. That’s why I created gitCamp.

GitCamp provides a streamlined intro to git-based collaboration by allowing users to create projects, invite collaborators, and create, manage, and assign tasks on an easy-to-use platform. Featuring full integration with github’s API, all activities are mirrored on users’ github profiles - for example, creating a new gitCamp project also initializes a new repository on github and tasks open new issues - allowing them to seamlessly transition to github when they’re ready.

Built With

I built gitCamp using Node and Express for the backend, PassportJS and github OAuth for authentication, Mongoose as an ODM for the MongoDB database, and React for a dynamic user experience.
