PFP | Security Solutions

I designed and implemented the initial front-end architecture using React and TypeScript, including:
. State/3entity management
. Caching
. Error handling
. Form building, validation, and processing
. Session management
. Handling various CSS styles

I also documented the guiding principles for extending a functionality rapidly without compromising code quality(readability/testability). In addition, I assisted the front-end team during the initial phase of the project, reviewed the code changes, and pinpointed potential design/implementation flaws for new features.

Angular 4 Coaching

I helped one of the biggest Georgian companies to sharpen their Angular 4 development skills. I conducted Socratic-style seminars about all the key topics, from basics to advanced such as TDD, state management, observables, and more. I also conducted code reviews and helped with challenging exercises—for quicker comprehension of the given material.

English Learning Training System
I worked as a full-stack developer to create a training system for English learners.

The system contains video tutorials with interactive exercises. Essentially there are two parts of the system: a user-facing interface and an administrator dashboard.

Angular 4 was used to implement the front-end side, while the APIs were implemented using Node.js. The system runs on AWS, for the container orchestration ECS is used, and SPAs are hosted on S3. The system also includes heavy video processing after uploading video tutorials, online payments (with a local bank), and user subscription management.

Children English Tutorials | Video Portal
This video portal contains English video tutorials for Georgian children.

I created back-end APIs using Node.js and a content management dashboard with Vue.js. I also did some SEO optimizations. The project is deployed on AWS with automatic deployments using CircleCI. The SPAs are deployed on S3 while the APIs are running on EC2 instances inside Docker containers.

WolfPack | Website
This is a multi-platform system that's geared towards bikers traveling long distances with groups. The systems consist of applications on iOS and Android; for system monitoring and management, a web application is used. The dashboard includes users, runs, payments, and more. It was implemented using AngularJS as a core framework and RxJS as the core library for managing asynchronous data streams.

Besides the dashboard, users can log in to their profile through a web portal which is also implemented on Angular. Here they can explore, plan, and create new runs. Heavy use of Google maps was necessary for achieving a high-quality user experience.

CityFitness | Website

This is another project with Node.js and MongoDB. The website was created on behalf of a local fitness company. It comes with a dashboard for administrators to manage schedules, subscriptions, sliders, and more. Webpack is used for client-side scripts to maintain modularity.

AMG's Website | Ember.js Dashboard

A dashboard was created for an already existing website and the back-end API was implemented with PHP. This was the first time I used Ember.js and I was very satisfied with it. The dashboard included multiple forms for managing content, paging for news, and multiple image uploading. All of the requirements were handled quickly and easily.

ServiceNetGroup | Website
This project was implemented using Node.js and MongoDB; jQuery was used on the client side using Webpack to maintain modularity. The website has its own CMS, multiple pages, contact forms, and a news feed with paging—all of that was implemented in a very short period of time.

Free Announcements Board

This is a free announcements board for electronics where users can manage their announcements, upload images, and use VIP bonuses. The system supports payment integrations with several local banks. I have fully developed the back end part of the project as well as critical front-end parts.

A Meeting Tool for Telecommunication

This huge meeting tool software for telecommunication. I've created several SPAs for users, managers, and system administrators; using AngularJS. I also developed the back-end APIs using Node.js.

BAMBATA Dance Club | Website

This is a website for a local zumba dance club. I created a pixel-perfect, eye-catching layout from a PSD with multiple sliders on the page, using some jQuery.

Boomerang | Lost and Found Service

This is a huge project for a lost-and-found service in Azerbaijan. I created back-end APIs and a multi-language user interface. I used several databases (MySQL and MongoDB) for lost item management.

Fenestra | Website

Fenestra is a local company that sells windows and doors. I created a CMS and designed the website layout with an interactive slider on the homepage.
