React Application for Meeting Organization & Collaborationhttps://hansluther.myportfolio.com/anchor-ai-make-the-most-of-meetings
After transitioning the project, I quickly began addressing issues to get to a beta release in short order:
* Added key features, such as sharing meetings, automatic action items, and organizing meetings into folders.
* Fixed codebase in adherence to best coding principles, specifically DRY (do not repeat yourself) and ETC (easy to change).
* Implemented a Design System with all basic and advanced UI elements that are clean, functional, and intuitive. I created components from scratch using HTML and CSS without using UI frameworks such as Material UI.
We launched Anchor AI to a closed beta within a few weeks, followed by a public release shortly after. The app is stable, and Anchor AI has experienced significant user growth. The code base is easy to maintain and allows for quick iteration of features.
