People spend ages deciding what to watch next on Netflix. Streaming platforms are walled gardens of content.
Create an app that suggests something for you to watch based on what you’ve seen or are keen to see.
With my UX and design skills I was able to conceptualise this app fairly quickly. The tricky part was figuring out how to get it built given the costs involved. I took the decision to teach myself how to code the app using online resources. It took the best part of a year to get the first iteration out the door and it has now become the side project I spend most of my time on as I work through iterations of new functionality. Definitely a labour of love.
