Version 0.0.0

## First Version Release!HACK_NEWLINE_CHARHACK_NEWLINE_CHAR### What Is Going OnHACK_NEWLINE_CHARHACK_NEWLINE_CHARThe website has been up and running for a while, but I wanted to get more public tracking on the website for when things change and what changed.HACK_NEWLINE_CHARHACK_NEWLINE_CHARIf there are new versions/additions to the website, the new tab will display a red dot (📰🔴) when you are logged in!HACK_NEWLINE_CHARHACK_NEWLINE_CHAR### Why Are You Doing This?HACK_NEWLINE_CHARHACK_NEWLINE_CHARI have a private GitHub repo and may someday take this site open source. But for the moment, I am enjoying the secrecy of this website's development. However, I still want there to be a public record of the development of this site! So I am adding a news page so that people can see when I am releasing new stuff as well as the what and why.HACK_NEWLINE_CHARHACK_NEWLINE_CHAR### So... Is There Anything Else New?HACK_NEWLINE_CHARHACK_NEWLINE_CHARI'm glad you asked! I have been changing a lot of things under the hood.HACK_NEWLINE_CHARHACK_NEWLINE_CHAR1. 🤓 **Code-First EF Relationships**: My database context and models have drastically changed to use code-first relationship patterns. This means I don't need to hand-craft as many database join queries which frees me up to do more interesting work.HACK_NEWLINE_CHAR1. 🚢 **Docker Containerization**: I now deploy my website through the use of Docker containers and docker-compose. This makes it much less stressful for me to publish my website, as well as keep it running and updating through the use of containers instead of manually copying over files. Again this will make it easier for me to do less hand-crafted development to focus on cooler website features 😎HACK_NEWLINE_CHARHACK_NEWLINE_CHAR### Future GoalsHACK_NEWLINE_CHARHACK_NEWLINE_CHARI have many lofty future goals for this website, but some I have planned for the nearer term are:HACK_NEWLINE_CHARHACK_NEWLINE_CHAR1. 🙋 **Headcounts and payment**: There are many events I'd like to do that have a headcount cap, for things like escape rooms, virtual reality things, or buying tickets to concerts. For these things, there will be limited headcount and things that might cost money. I want to make it easier on myself to schedule events by having people pay their share via my website. I also think it would be really cool to have a waiting list for events, in case people who have RSVP'd drop out.HACK_NEWLINE_CHAR1. 🏆 **Leaderboards**: I think it would be really fun(ny) to have user leaderboards for the site based on usage, driven positively by attending events and interacting w the website, and negatively by not using the site or RSVP'ing and not showing up.HACK_NEWLINE_CHAR1. 🎫 **Apple Wallet and Google Pay**: I was taking a look at some of the requirements to make my website compatible with Apple Wallet and Google Pay tickets, and while it is a decent amount of work to get going, I think it would be really fun to get tickets working for my events.HACK_NEWLINE_CHAR1. 🧸 **Event Prizes**: I think having some prizes at events driven by RSVPs would be really fun. Like raffles or attendees killing it on the leaderboard.HACK_NEWLINE_CHARHACK_NEWLINE_CHARThere is plenty more other stuff both feature and backend related to the website that I'd like to do in the future, but I am just one person. If you have any ideas of things that would work really well, please let me know 🥰HACK_NEWLINE_CHAR
