DINAcon Awards Nominee


Project Start: 01. Oktober 2018

Project Category: #2 Best Newcomer

DeckDeckGo aims to be the open source web editor for presentations. It enables anyone with any type of devices (desktop, mobile or tablets) to easily create, present and share presentations for free. It is also an online community for sharing presentations, slides and talks about your interests and ideas.

Project Business Case

Currently this project is a hobby side project and has no business expectations.

Project Importance

The world doesn't need a new presentation tool. However, distributing an open source and transparent platform will probably not harm anyone and is also the kind of software we would like to use. Moreover, we are using modern technologies and we are sharing DeckDeckGo with our communities, which might help us to become better programmers and which might, in the same time, help others to learn or solve tech issues. For the same reason, we are documenting our experience in form of blog posts. I notably try to transform our experience in beginner friendly tutorials (https://dev.to/daviddalbusco) which hopefully might help others at some point too.

Project Impact

If our project would disappear, it would not be a problem. We would be able to provide back their content to the users who would have edited presentations using our editor. For the users who would have used our components, it would not be a problem neither, as these are standalone.
