    A worldwide-unique project that overcomes a major MIDP-1.0/MIDP-2.0 limitation that restricts the user to only running a single application (midlet) at a time. The project is a constructor for mixing several midlets into one—a “multi-midlet” allowing for use of them simultaneously within an emulated multi-tasking environment.

  • SMS@Sender

    An “internet-to-sms” messaging project with mobile/web clients.

  • BomberField

    This is an online real-time multiplayer game that is currently under development.

  • WideUP

    A multifunctional platform for the online business sector and private space.

  • youdrive

    A driving-related Ukrainian site that is currently on hold.

  • View-First Java Web Framework

    A view-first framework for Java that was inspired by Lift. It is based on Java Servlets and integrates easily with CDI. It has not been open-sourced yet. It is user-friendly and runs efficiently, needing just a few ms to generate 500KB responses with 16+ concurrent requests.

  • Advanced UI Framework for Java ME

    This is a Java ME framework that I've created and used to build a number of applications and games. It is not open-sourced and I have not continued to develop it since iPhone/Android have become relevant in the mobile market, but it is an elegant, efficient framework.

    Arazoo is a "the collaborative workflow hub" for building architects. There I was doing the majority of the back-end tasks, including indexing and search, and parts of the front-end.

  • Prsnt.app

    Prsnt is an online moodboard tool. I was involved in doing a part of the back-end and front-end tasks. But my main involvement was related to doing R&D projects to figure out smart algorithms for automatic image layout and running those algorithms efficiently (and within hard time limits).
