Coastline – Expats in Korea
Listings, Events, and Information for expats in Busan
I wanted to build a platform that can help the expats in all over the world by providing listings and information from locals. Coastline is my first startup as a founder, partnered with my girlfriend, Gina Gwon. We’ve created a small MVP by creating a Facebook page and uploaded some information that we wanted to share with the expats, and later, launched the website.
- When users select a listing, it gives not only the listing’s information but shows what is inside the listing, events happening at the listing and also information that is good to know before visiting the place.
- The home page is built like a SPA, but for the purposes of SEO, we’ve decided to make a separate page for individual listings.
- We didn’t want to wait too long before launching, the whole development took around two months, and that was while creating contents on facebook everyday.
- I’ve used Laravel to quickly bootstrap the backend and aim to make it as simple as possible for the MVP.
