My name is Alex and I like creating things. Sometimes it's through drawing, sometimes it's through photography, sometimes it's just pen and paper but, if you're here, you probably care more about those things I create using code.

That one is a simple polling app that can be self-hosted. Why? Because you might be in an organization that has a rigorous process around installation and review of 3rd party apps and it's the way to do polling in slack while respecting those constraints.

⚡ Fun Facts About Me:
I learned to live on the road doing that for 1 year with my partner, 2 kids, dog and cat in our 1989 Volkswagen Vanagon.
I committed to making 1 public commit per day when working on glukit and got to a 200 days streak before reaching my goal. Yes, I still had a full-time day job and yes, I was pretty tired at the end.
