Streamlined Infrastructure Deployment Tool

I spearheaded the development of a secure and versatile deployment tool, which utilizes a custom templating engine and integrates seamlessly with leading infrastructure provisioning technologies like Terraform, Kubernetes, Ansible, Helm, and Docker. It offers a centralized platform for managing secrets, variables, and deployment workflows, streamlining the infrastructure deployment process.

Scalable Web Application with Deployed Machine Learning Model

I played a crucial role in the development of a scalable web application that utilized a pre-trained machine learning model. While a separate team handled the model training, I was in charge of the application's entire development lifecycle, encompassing both front-end and back-end development. This included integrating the model into the application in a modular and scalable manner, ensuring smooth deployment and functionality.

Next-gen Insurance Comparison Platform

As a full-stack developer, I spearheaded the rewrite of the core application to support a broader range of insurance products beyond car insurance. I also collaborated with external providers to integrate their services, ensuring a seamless user experience with rich data and customizable dashboards. Additionally, I implemented automated deployments using Ansible to streamline efficiency.

Visual Python Interpreter for Beginners

I developed a Microsoft Store application to visualize the execution flow of Python code. This educational tool simplifies understanding program logic for novice learners. The application leverages C#/XAML for the user interface and utilizes a Python core exposed as a REST API via the Django REST framework.

Market Pulse: Unveiling Opportunities and Growth Trends

This web application, developed as a research project, functions as a comprehensive market health monitor. It empowers businesses with data-driven insights on market opportunities, regional market share distribution across the US, and sales forecasting based on historical trends. This application showcases the potential for leveraging data to gain a competitive edge and make strategic decisions.
