Lack is a realtime communication app that helps teams streamline messaging channels and prioritize notifications based on customizable settings.

Lack was inspired by the problems people often encounter while using email threads and other chat apps: the accumulation of conversations that do not have a well-defined purpose or intended duration, and the difficulty of filtering endless notifications to separate signal from noise.

With Lack, all communication occurs in 'rooms,' each of which has an explicit objective and expiration date on which the room will self-destruct. Users also have the option to set specific 'buzzwords' and 'VIPs' so that they can be alerted of any incoming messages containing those words or from those people.

Technologies: Google Firebase, AngularFire, Angular Material, Node.js, HTML/CSS
