And finding an unconventional solution to a challenging objective

As a passionate developer I’m aways juggling side projects alongside my pay-the-bills work. Earlier this year I secured some great tickets to the Eurovision Song Contest and in the excitement I decided to build a modern web app to explore and discover the history of the annual show. I set myself some objectives:

  • It should utilise the very latest and greatest web technology.
  • It should contain Eurovision Song Contests historic results and the information should be available in the most used languages in Europe.
  • The data must be easy to maintain (this was the tricky bit!).

Tldr: Here’s the app I built and below are the details of how I put it together & the challenge I encountered, video demo at the bottom.
