IaaS System Based on OpenStack

An IaaS system for cloud services designed to compete with industry leaders (e.g., DigitalOcean). I was a leading full-stack developer and a technical lead in a team of four. The app was written in Go (back end) and Vue (front end). The system back-end was based on OpenStack, expanding its functionality to meet business requirements.

The fully custom platform components were billing and support areas, and they were designed from scratch.

SSR Website

https://www.servermania.com
The main goal was to provide a website with around 300 pages that could be easily updated with new content. A significant amount of pages should be designed to be data-driven friendly.

I was a technical lead on this project, and I'd chosen Nuxt.js as a framework because it combines benefits from Vue.js and the SSR approach, which makes an app SEO-friendly. Starting from scratch, I designed the architecture and CI/CD, implemented crucial low-level parts, and managed other developers to complete the project.

We provided a blazing-fast website with dynamic content support and a codebase that can be easily maintained and expanded.

ServerMania's Lockstep

https://lockstep.servermania.com
The goal was to provide a transparent, supervisable, and reliable way to sync data between the company's billing platform and third-party marketing services such as ActiveCampaign, Wicked Reports, and Zoho Analytics.

As a senior developer, I took responsibility for implementing the most valuable and complex architecture parts. I also spent some time mentoring other team members, so we could achieve the project goals and improve their skills by learning from practical examples.

We released an app with a zero-downtime policy, fast syncs, and complete logs. At this point, the marketing department was always sure that their reports used 100% valid data and that nothing was missing.

CRM App

As a lead front-end developer, I collaborated with the Toptal team to build a Vue-based CRM app for a company in Chicago. I designed the front-end architecture and implemented best practices to ensure smooth integration with the back-end development.

ServerMania's Order Form

https://order.servermania.com
The main goal was to provide the company's clients with a convenient way to automatically order servers' packages.

The project had complex feature and performance requirements. As a lead full-stack developer, I've implemented the basic architecture and required features using Vue, Go, and PostgreSQL. Those features included:
• An admin area with sophisticated controls and customization options
• A client area that should be fast and convenient to use
• The company's billing platform integration with Stripe, PayPal, and BTPay
• A batch of other third-party and internal services integrations
• The CI/CD configuration and implementation

Our team fulfilled all provided requirements and released an app that was convenient to use, fast, and easy to maintain, making the sales team and clients' lives easier.

Awesome Notifications

https://github.com/f3oall/awesome-notifications
The main goal was to provide a tool to easily create toast notifications. It should be lightweight, simple to use, support asynchronous flow, and provide data-driven API.

I decided to make it open-source, so I could help the community solve similar issues. I developed it from scratch using Vanilla JS and CSS without any dependencies.

The resulting library had a 4KB size, was convenient to use, and had detailed documentation. In no time, it became popular and got hundreds of thankful users.

ServerMania's Blog

https://blog.servermania.com
The goal was to create a blog that content writers could easily update.

As a leading developer, I chose WordPress as a platform because it fulfilled requirements and could be implemented quickly. However, I had to develop a custom WordPress theme for performance and customization reasons.

Unlike most other companies, we've successfully integrated Git and GitLab CI/CD in the WordPress development workflow, which benefited us with a highly supervised and reliable way to work with WordPress.

YQueue SSR Website

http://yqueue.co
The main company's website was meant to be built with the support of SSR, and initially, Nuxt.js should have been used as an engine. Still, after I was hired, I did requirements analytics and based on my extensive experience with different SSR engines (including Nuxt.js), I advised using Astro.js instead as a more performant solution.

The project's main challenges were complicated animations and rendering of different content per region. I successfully handled these challenges and not only fulfilled every requirement but also did it with the best performance possible.

ServerMania's Knowledge Base

https://www.servermania.com/kb
The goal was to create a self-support center for the company's clients that content writers could easily update.

This project had a lot in common with the company's blog, so, as a leading developer, I decided to use WordPress again. However, we also needed a custom WordPress theme, in this case, for performance and customization reasons. Still, since we already had one for the blog, I just adapted it, reusing most of the existing codebase.

We got a fully-featured self-support center using almost the same codebase as our previous WordPress project. This helped reduce the number of resources needed for the maintenance of both projects, which can persist up-to-date without noticeable efforts from the development team.

ServerMania's Surge

The project goal was to create a complex app that should contain billing processing, a support center, a dedicated servers' control panel, marketing reports, and a batch of other tools.

This was the most complicated and long project I've ever worked on. We had a small development team, and as a benefit of such a small team size, I could participate in developing each feature using a non-trivial stack—Go, MongoDB, GraphQL, and Vue.

Despite all difficulties, we released this app in time, a turn-point in the company's history because this app dramatically enhanced business processes and increased ServerMania's competitiveness in the market.

Consultant for EdTech app

I assessed an edtech company's MVP, focusing on performance and mobile user experience (UX). By conducting a thorough analysis of the codebase and its functional and non-functional requirements, I provided a concise and impactful guide to enhance these areas.
