What are you working on during the BGA Hackathon?

Hi all!

The BGA Hackathon is live. I'm the creator of the BGA: Pocket app and I figured I'll be participating by using the Hackathon hours to work some more on adding forum integration to the App!

If you're interested, you can already find a version of the app in the app store: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.boardgameatlas.pocket

Best of luck to everybody!

I’m attempting to prototype a board game trading web app, but life (and two little girls :)) are doing their best to prevent that lol. We will see if I can get something done in time. 

Any plans for an iOS version?

It actually works on iOS. But I'm kind of hesitant to buy the 90 dollar a year Dev license before I have a more completed App. Since I don't want my users to pay for the app (since it will put up a barrier for people to try it out) I'm paying all of the costs out of my own pockets. However the app is already getting more and more completed so it shouldn't be too long :).

Nice! Did you go native? Or, use some type of cross-platform tech?

Gekey 8 days ago | 4 points

I'm using a framework called React Native. It's cross platform but the apps feel and look native.

I'm excited to see what you can come up with!

Cool! I've never used React Native myself, but it looks neat!

Thanks ha, I really thought I'd be able to squeeze in more than 3-4 hours of work during this time ha. I'm really pushing to get something done here lol.

Btw, I'm living in Europe so my working hours are not really lining up with the schedule but I'm making the most of it!
