Koderia is an online portal for developers and students with a focus on software engineering. The portal brings information about the industry such as articles, events, job posts, and original content – blogs, but also offers additional support such as payroll calculator, adequate salary calculator technical dictionary, etc.
The beginning of the multi-functional portal
Moving to Vue and Firestore
As Koderia grew, it became apparent that WordPress simply won’t be enough.
The decision to go with Firebase proved to be a beneficial one. Firebase offered us many out-of-the-box customizable features such as:
- Realtime Database was used until more querying possibilities were needed, while Firestore provides everything we needed since and probably will ever need concerning the Koderia project.
- Cloud Functions proved to be a fitting replacement for a standard backend.
- Firebase Authentication was a pleasant feature to use and implement. Providers such as Google, Facebook, Github (and also standard email + password) were implemented with ease.
- Firebase CI/CD also offered us an easy-to-use deployment solution that we have set up and used since our first release.
Key features of Koderia today
The main point that differentiates Koderia CV from any other, is a radar chart, that shows how much a person is oriented on Fronted, Backend, Database, Dev/Ops, or Styling. This helps to understand all the skills, education, and experience with a blink of an eye.
People that created their CVs are able to react to open positions more quickly and also see whether the position suits their skills and experience or not.
Payroll calculator let users calculate their income based on type of their employment. The feature brigs rich visual representation of all the expenses and taxes. The main goal is to educate and explain, what type of employment is better in their situation. Many Slovak companies, especially in IT industry, offers contract instead of permanent employment. As the salary varies in these cases, the user is informed about all the differences.

Koderia kept the first feature – The adequate salary calculator, which is now also integrated into CV. There is no need to fill another form. When the CV is created, the adequate salary is calculated too.
Throughout the time the project is online, Koderia established its place in Slovakia and plans to continue with the support for developers, bringing new features and improve existing ones.
