Interactive Charts in Office

https://activegraf.com/
This project aims to provide interactive charts in Excel and PowerPoint to enable what-if calculations in real time. Multiple Office JavaScript with Angular add-ins and an ASP.NET Web API server were responsible for delivering this experience.

After a thorough code review, my tasks were major refactors and modifications, including introducing NoSQL DB, ensuring completely offline functioning, and enhancing the installer. I reworked the communication between the components to be direct and predictable.

To introduce MacOS support, I designed and partly implemented the conversion to be cross-platform.

I got some ad hoc tasks, like introducing Git workflow and implementing a CI/CD pipeline. In 2019, I participated in the interview of two junior developers. After they applied, I became their mentor on the project.

Currently, my tasks are optimizing communication between the components and modifying the installation process to minimize the need for elevated privileges. Nowadays, I also troubleshoot with customers when they face technical problems on their side.

Mobile Applications for Sustainable Mobility

First, I did short-term consulting for an ongoing mobile application and its back end. The main focus was on code-sharing and maintainability.

After that, I switched to full-stack development with ASP.NET Core and Xamarin.Forms. My most relevant contributions were organizing the work, converting customer needs to actual implementations, and managing the release processes for both Android and iOS. The size of the team on this project varied between two and four. In total, I oversaw four separate applications, and three of their back ends.

Mental Hygiene App for University Students

The SZTE Menta is a Xamarin.Forms app that supports academic success and well-being. My role on the project was general leadership of the developer team of three members. I also implemented the API, business logic, and parts of the custom UI. Releasing the apps for both Android and iOS was among my responsibilities, too.
