How I built it
It's a full stack web application the backend is built using nodejs expressjs mongoose and we used mongodb as database.first we scraped through the espn website to get data and populated the db then built appropriate routes for different queries. We also containarised the backend and deployed on google kubernetes engine.
Challenges I ran into
Deploying the backend to gke was a little difficult, configuring it is a tedeous task.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
We are proud thate we build a full stack application in just two days that is the backend frontend and deployment.
What I learned
MERN Stack, Docker, Load sharing within team members
