Gen AI App
My co-creator Johnny Rodriguez and I decided to join a week-long hackathon hosted by Ben’s Bites, one of the fastest growing newsletter on the topic of AI. Leveraging the power of GPT-3 and DALL-E, we set out to create a platform that allows non-engineers to build and deploy AI tools in matter of minutes. At the end of the hackathon, we were pleased to win the 1st place! We are continuing to invest our time in making the app more powerful and accessible for everyone.
As a Technical Co-Founder, I'm responsible for Product Strategy and Full-Stack Software Engineering.
The app resulted in 100,000 user sign-ups, 150 recurring monthly paying users, multiple consulting business opportunities.
User Sign-Ups in 8 months
Monthly Recurring Subscribers
With only a week before the hackathon, time was of the essence. Our team decided to address the cumbersome process of chaining together three or more services to create no-code Generative AI applications. After finalizing the concept, we turned to ChatGPT to assist us in summarizing our project's goals and even naming our product—resulting in the moniker "brancher.ai."
Wireframing & Prototyping
We promptly commenced with wireframing the user experience using Figma. As we iteratively refined the design, I began to establish the infrastructure for the application. This involved setting up cloud hosting through Vercel, integrating user authentication via Auth0, and configuring a database through Google Cloud, among other tasks.
With a clear "North Star" vision guiding us, we started the actual development phase. This involved building the marketing website, developing the web application, and crafting a compelling brand design—all aimed at making a strong impression when we launched at the end of the hackathon.
