  • Lead Front-end React Development for HKTVmall (Development)

    HKTVmall is part of the HKTV Network.
    As a front-end developer, I built some part of the shop's front-end using React and Redux.

    At first, I had to build the basic redux structure from the scratch. I then implemented Redux-Saga to improve the action dispatcher side and Immutable.js to prevent state mutation. Then I used Reselect to make it easy to get data from the Redux store as well as other teammates can easily work on the existing system.

    On this project, I worked as a lead front-end React developer.
    I learned how to choose the most appropriate technologies and the structure of the system. Later these experiences helped me a lot in other projects.

  • HKTVmall Android Mobile Application (Development)

    After two months of working with HKTVmall, I took part in developing the Android mobile application using React Native.

    The back-end was already built so what left was building the mobile front-end using React Native.

    I already built a very well-structured and well-working reducer, Redux store, and action dispatcher structure for the web application so I didn't spend much time on building the Redux structure for the React Native applications. Just a few customization and the Redux part of the application was ready for the integration.

    First, I started this project using Expo.io, but there were some difficulties in integrating the React Native extensions and packages so I have detached the app from the Expo.io.

    After two months, I finished the Android mobile application.

  • Keyo | React Native Mobile App (Development)

    I built the mobile front-end for both Android and iOS using React Native. I used React Native with Redux, NativeBase, and FCM to build a mobile application. It is also integrated with the Stripe API and Plaid API.

    This mobile application is for Keyo Plam payment system.
    You can easily use Keyo to pay, just put your palm on a Keyo terminal.

    For this, the user must link their bank account, and credit cards to their Keyo.co account.

    This project was to build a mobile application which allows the users to easily link their various payment methods on their phone.

    To implement this, I integrated the application with Card.io so that users can easily register their credit or debit card using their camera on the phone.

    To link the bank account and credit card, I integrated Stripe API as well as Plaid API to allow ACH payment integration.

    On this project, I have acquired solid experiences about Stripe and Plaid API.
