The Auction House


An application where people can put items for auction and bid on other auctions. Whenever an auction comes to an end, the seller and the highest bidder are both notified by email. This app is an introduction to AWS and Serverless. I used tech such as AWS Lambda, DynamoDB, Simple Email Service, Simple Queue Service, S3, Route 53 and Cloudfront. Authentication is managed with Auth0.

Superhero DB


Experimenting Nextjs by building an app that displays a list of superheroes and vilains. A simple app fetching data from the superhero api. By clicking a hero, its details are displayed. We can also search a hero by its name. Some optimizations are needed. Especially regarding the way the data are fetched. May add a caching mechanism in the future.
