Idea to App in less than 24hrs

I built Instalounge in about 24 hours.

The Idea

I joined the 30x500 pioneers program last week, and one perk was joining the Slack lounge.

They used a little app called Slackin. It’s an app that allows you to set-up a public facing slack signup page.

The only thing I didn’t like was the fact that you needed to deploy it yourself (mind you the Heroku button is pretty easy to deploy things).

I wanted to capture the same idea, but instead of deploying and configuring it manually, you could just send someone a link.

Meet Instalounge

Instalounge is a simple App that lets anyone join your Slack team with just a link.

Try it out here.
