Mobile Application for Vanderbilt Technical Services

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.vitech
An Android and iOS application for Vanderbilt Industries, a big German company. The app is used by thousands of users worldwide and is compatible with Android 5+ and iOS 10+.

As the architect and developer of this application, I used React Native and Expo to build the application.

The app's main functionalities include:
• FAQ system that is integrated into the Salesforces to fetch data for users;
• client area for users to connect and work with their accounts; and
• download center allowing users to download content, such as user manuals.

Information System to Manage Festival Halls

An information system to manage festival halls includes an interactive booking calendar, management of user accounts and employees based on the RBAC security system, and management of festival halls, customers, and payments.

I designed and developed this app entirely.

Information System of GPS Facility Management

I designed and developed an information system for GPS facility management, including features such as
• management of employees (technicians, resellers, salespeople), vehicles, and their GPS installations;
• complex security system based on graph theory that manages hundreds of possible user roles; and
• integration of multiple systems and databases from different sources.

Web Application for Passenger Transport

A web application for passenger transport was developed for a client from France.

I architected and developed the client and admin applications, apps for managing vehicle booking in France using the Google Maps API, and apps for managing reservations, quotes, drivers, vehicles, prices, and information system user accounts.

Web Application for Solar Company

A web application for a solar company in Texas, USA. I designed and developed the client and admin applications and customized CMS, allowing administrators to modify the web application content dynamically. The app also provided management of services, projects, and newsletters.

Web App for Solar Company

I designed and developed some parts of the web application for a solar company based in Tunisia, including the client and admin applications and customized CMS that enabled administrators to modify the web application content dynamically. The app also provided management of services, projects, and newsletters.

Service Catalog Web Application

The goal was to develop a web application to regroup hundreds of services offered by Revenu Quebec in a single catalog. This catalog handled the synchronous and asynchronous communications between services and promoted the discoverability design principle.

As the principal solution architect and full-stack developer on this project, I designed and developed the back end with .NET and the front end with Angular.

Code Generator for System Integration

While working on this project, I designed and developed code generators using Yeoman, reducing the development cost of WSO2 applications by over 90% and economizing hundreds of thousands of dollars annually. I also created the SOA applications based on the RFC8707 standard to integrate heterogeneous systems. As part of the project, I led and coached developers and architects in implementing various other projects.
