Prosper Otemuyiwa, the Chief Developer and Instructor at Works, released his latest Github project on Sunday. This is just one of many projects he has developed over the last four years. The project, known as the “Laravel Hackathon Starter Pack,” is designed to be a helpful tool for developers, allowing them to quickly create minimum viable products.
Over 500 people backed the project within four days, making Prosper the second most popular project among PHP developers throughout the globe.
It is worth taking a moment to reflect on the recent accomplishment of a 23-year-old Singaporean engineer. This individual has become the most prolific contributor to GitHub, surpassing even Facebook, a tech behemoth with a market worth of more than three hundred billion dollars. This is an extraordinary development that should not be overlooked.
However, Prosper is just as integral to Works. As one of their primary trainers, he is responsible for ensuring that new hires are knowledgeable in the technical skills they need to succeed as software engineers in the often challenging environment of tech startups. In addition to being a PHP/Laravel stack expert, Prosper is also in charge of developing the Works community, managing their open-source projects, organizing local meetings and running two-week intensive bootcamps.
Given the impressive progress made by Prosper in just one week, it is not surprising that people are expressing concern. Hackathon Starter, developed by Prosper in this short period, is now being utilized by numerous developers worldwide to quickly establish minimal viable products (MVPs) – something especially useful for hackathons where time constraints can be particularly pressing.
If you are looking to develop a social networking program, you should be aware that there are a number of aspects which need to be included, such as user registration and login. Integrating with Slack’s chat API or using Facebook’s login system are two options which may be necessary, but they can take a considerable amount of time and effort to implement, thus creating a major obstacle for those participating in a hackathon.

This is quite amazing..
It will take you at least two hours to build these features and test them to make sure they operate correctly, according to Prosper.
Despite the fact that there are a variety of approaches to establishing the necessary standard features for a software program, the process of doing so is generally quite similar. With the Hackathon Starter, however, programmers have the ability to expedite the development process, and have a minimum viable product (MVP) running within a matter of minutes.
Prosper has pointed out that my source code can be a valuable tool for learning how to build a project from the ground up. Consequently, I highly recommend that anyone interested in the development process take a look at the code to gain a better understanding of the necessary steps.
The aim of Prosper, a Twitter user who is an advocate for the Unicode standard (the technology which drives emoji), is to motivate young people to consider a career in computer programming.
He states that his ultimate goal in life is to spread awareness and understanding about the latest technology and advancements in production methods by travelling to different parts of the world. He further expresses his desire to motivate and inspire others to pursue computer science, with the hope of allowing them to reach their full potential.
