Angular  Router Transition

https://medium.com/@gogakoreli/angular-route-transition-animation-change-page-back-and-forth-v5-4574c609df54
A blog post about how to animate page changes using Angular's animation system (version 5). Implementation takes into account website responsiveness and achieves the result via a resilient approach.

Technologies used were Angular 5, TypeScript, HTML, and CSS.

Employee Management Portal

I developed an enterprise-level software application that was used within the company. The software domain was employee tracking, human resources, contracts, and finances. The complex business logic lay within the back-end Web API, which was written using .NET Core. I also used the Entity Framework for persistence. For the front-end, Angular 2 was used with Material Design patterns. This is internal software, and the authorization occurs in the active directory, which is chosen by the user's computer inside the network.

GPS Tracking and Monitoring

I created software for the tracking and monitoring of GPS devices for the largest GPS-tracking company in Georgia.

I completely rewrote the old Silverlight-based project and ensured that the new website was up to current technology standards and design patterns. I made sure to implement the new technology that was optimized in order to enable users to accomplish what was nearly impossible before and improve performance.

The front-end client portal (written in Angular 2) lets the users see the tracker's current live location or location history, along with a great deal of additional information. There is optional fuel tracking for clients with fuel sensors. The new system also allows for the generation of general, custom, and dynamic reports for processing complex data and user-friendly displays.

The back-end microservices were written using .NET Core with complex architecture and design patterns. I also used the SQL Server and Entity Framework for persistence.
