Modern web applications incorporate a vast number of technologies and programming paradigms, often presenting an overwhelming landscape of foreign concepts and design patterns. The primary goal of this project is to explore a suite of modern web technologies and concepts through the implementation of a minimalistic Hacker News clone, which is a popular link aggregation site focusing on computer science and entrepreneurship. The primary technologies used in this project are Java and the Spring Boot framework, which provides a simpler interface to the more cumbersome Spring framework, with the goal of allowing for more rapid development.
