Create a SaaS and On-premise Infrastructure for Cryptobox

Cryptobox is a government-grade security solution to share documents (Dropbox-like). The solution is microservices-oriented, running on Kubernetes.

I created the whole infrastructure solution for both a SaaS (deployed on AWS) and for on-promise deployments (bare servers or AWS). Both of them are automatically deployed (CloudFormation and/or Ansible) and are highly-available and heavily monitored.

Multisite Big Data Workflow for Mining Sites

During my time working for ISI.NC, I supported the project efforts for SLN (a nickel-mining company). This project was to retrieve and compute data from their mining sites.

The solution consisted of microservices designed around Hadoop, Kafka (with Samza), and on top of Docker (later migrated onto Kubernetes). I helped create the Docker containers and infrastructure and also later developed a few microservices (Java).

ISITable | Point of Sale (POS) for Restaurants on Top of Odoo

I created a POS module for Odoo. The goal was to create an interface for every people in the restaurant (waiters, kitchen and bar) and link it with the Odoo system (billing service, stocks).

The module back-end was developed in Python and the front-end was composed of a web page (HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS3), updates and notifications were sent by SSE (as Websockets wasn't enough democratized yet).
