🚀 Launched disbots.gg, my first full-stack website

I launched my first full-stack web application - a Discord bot listing site. In early 2020, I noticed how underdeveloped the Discord bot listing space was - there was a lot of room for innovation and profit.

In June 2020, I began developing disbots.gg, a Discord bot listing site with many new features, phenomenal UI design and a great community behind it. As a Python-only developer, I took this as an opportunity to learn Javascript/Express and Vue.

After a few months of development, I established a team of developers and moderators to help with the site. We created an extremely fast and intuitive verification system to keep up the quality of bots on our site but still go through applications in under 12 hours from onboarding.

In under a week from site launch -
- we grew to a community of almost 300 people
- showcased a network of almost 100 unique bots
& released a public Discord bot integration

Moved to Canada
✈️ Moved from Bangalore 🇮🇳 to Toronto 🇨🇦

On August 23rd 2019, my family received our work & study permits to move to Canada. In just two weeks, we -

  • booked flight tickets for the 14th so my we wouldn't miss much school
  • booked a 7-day Airbnb for a place to stay the moment we landed
  • made a list of houses we could rent, while still in Bangalore
  • bid farewell to all of my friends & family in Bangalore

On September 23rd 2019 (one week after we landed), we had rented a place to stay (for the next ~2 years) and my brother and I were on our way to our first days of school in Canada.

My life has changed significantly (for the better) since then and it still surprises me that we were able to move in a little over a fortnight after living in Bangalore for over 15 years.

I'm eternally thankful for the opportunities this has brought me and I'm looking forward to everything I can accomplish in Canada :) We were extremely fortunate to move before the pandemic.
