  • Designed and implemented a system to recover the data missed between the network elements and the application.

Continuous Delivery Architecture

The purpose of this project was to design and implement a continuous delivery architecture for a scalable and secure 3 tier Node application.

Technologies: AWS, Terraform, Kubernetes, Jenkins, CloudFront, Node.js

Building All of the Infrastructure from a Single Script

The goal here was to build from a single script all the infrastructure to serve a Dockerized web application. It also includes the pipeline which simplifies the whole process with automation. For example, when developers push changes to the repository, it will automatically build the Docker image, push it to the ECR repository, and then deploy it to a Fargate service.

Technologies: CloudFormation, Docker, ECR, ECS, Fargate, CloudWatch, CodePipeline

Python Tool

I built a Python tool to test ETL definitions (execute, test, and deploy ETL definitions).
