The Problem. πŸš€

Am not really the type who loves building portfolio sites , infact I hate it to be sincere. That why I try as much as possible to organize my github profile, but with all the effort made , when applying for a tech job, companies still ask for your personal portfolio site. This really lead to the development of a unique tool mentioned below.

Solving a problem which all developers sometimes get frustrated with. It all begin on the day I tried signing up on a platform called YCombinator so my SaaS startup would be able to get funding's from investors ( either VC or Angelist ).

In the process of signing up, I was asked to submit my portfolio site link address which I dont have at that moment. This made me postponed the signup. Not just that, Having to apply for some tech jobs required me to add a portfolio sites. This made me get rejections from this companies. Then I taught to myself, what if I could just generate a unique, intuitive and flexible #portfolio sites right from my github profile using just a single command from the terminal? Well, I guess that "what if" just came into reality.

Common 😎, who doesn't love to be in a fancy terminal, of course we all do, and that what lead to the development of this application called BaayMax 1.0.
