Experience

  • ClassRoomQ | Node.js and React App (Development)
    https://classroomq.com

    ClassRoomQ is a Node.js and React app that allows students and teachers in virtual classrooms to interact with each other in a structured way. There were two authorization levels. The authentication had to be done through a middleware that could identify the users who were already logged in to a WordPress application. The Node.js and React interaction was done through WebSockets rather than an API to facilitate the 2-way interaction between authenticated and anonymous users.

  • Tradunity (Development)

    With a business partner, I founded Tradunity: a bootstrapped startup. Our goal was to help beginner traders find success in the financial markets.

    I was responsible for technical development and leading the technical team as we grew. I also created the original app and integrated it with all the vital services we needed to create a thriving community.

    As our team grew, so did my responsibilities. We created and executed a very efficient product and promotion strategy, which led to great results. Tradunity has turned a profit from the first month up until the beginning of 2020. The project was closed at the beginning of 2020.
