What's up Producthunt? 👽 This is my first launch on Producthunt, let me give some more information about my product: ⚡️ What is it? Workmode is a (progressive) web application. The goal of this app is to help the user find the best place to work from, depending on the location or search query of the user. 🤔The problem I made this app while traveling and working in Southeast Asia. During my travels, there were moments of frustrations looking for a good place to work with a solid download speed. When I finally found a cool cafe and bought my latte, the first thing I would do is test the internet speed. There's nothing worse than sitting in a cool coffee shop with your MacBook open, ready for work to find out the download speed is 80 Kbps. Finding a good workplace with a solid download and upload speed in some areas of the world can be tough. Out of this frustration I created Workmode. The initial idea of Workmode is to crowdsource the download speed of workplaces from all over the world, one speed test at a time. In addition to the internet speed, a questionnaire is also shown in order to review the workability of a workplace. The speedtest and questionnaire results are saved and shown to users when they are close by or do a search for the region where the workplace is located. ⚙️ How does it work? When the user opens the application, the system checks if the geolocation is accurate and if any workplaces are nearby. If this is the case, the system will show the workplaces that are available for testing. When no places can be found or when the accuracy is below par, a general speedtest will be executed without the data being saved to the server. General information about the listed workplaces is sourced from Google and Foursquare. This information is merged with the crowdsourced data that is submitted by the users of Workmode. Tech stack: NGINX, Node Express, JS and HTML. 🎉 Any comments, tips, and suggestions are MORE than welcome! Thanks a lot, guys.

Just tested it. Amazing! Just had a problem of going all the way to a co-working space only to find out it was closed.

@truonglong88 Where you at? :) I built this app while traveling in Vietnam so I already mapped a lot of good places in HCMC, Hanoi, Da Nang and Hoi An

@frizurd I got your idea now. It is really good for freelancers who live in coffeeshop whole day.

Any way we can fill it up once we're on site?

@joe_xavier Fill up the site with workplaces or speed results? The workplaces are from Google and Foursquare, hoping to expand this in the near future. There is no way of adding custom places at the moment but I have some ideas on how to implement this when the correct place can not be found. The system automatically submits the speedtest information and questionnaire results to the server when and if the system recognises the current workplace.
