Hello ๐Ÿ‘‹,

Billie invoice generator is online invoicing webapp that helps you craft professional invoices. With a single click, you can create stunning invoices!

Behind the Idea

Initially, I was considering how we could begin to educate ourselves. So I found a solution and began working on this project, attempting to integrate new features and tools. For the implementation of this project, I used a different tool and a new stack. I'm currently working on a kafka-based event-driven architecture. By building this project I learned fastapi, Kafka, Kubernetes , containerization, and CI/CD Deployment etc. I'm attempting to integrate new features in order to enhance my coding abilities and learn new stuff.
