Weefty Marketplace

https://weefty.com
I collaborated closely with the company's CEO to conceive and develop the Weefty platform, initially created as a localized store listing service. We designed the platform to filter and sort local stores based on location meticulously, but it soon evolved into a robust marketplace for these businesses.

From the project's inception, I played a foundational role, starting from scratch with a primary focus on front-end development. In addition to my front-end responsibilities, I actively contributed to crucial decisions surrounding back-end implementation and database design. This comprehensive involvement allowed me to directly contribute to the back end by rigorously writing code and reviewing all pull requests.

Furthermore, I also worked closely with the design team, providing feedback on UI designs, and supervised a junior front-end developer.

Additionally, I set up the CI/CD pipeline for both the front and back end, streamlining development. Using AWS and Github, I handled deployment and created two environments—one for development/testing and one for production. These environments enhanced platform stability, scalability, and reliability as they grew.

The Dama

http://jimmar.net/the-dama
A 3D mobile board game I developed and released using Unity. The game is available on both the iOS App Store and the Android Play Store.

I worked on the game's entire development as a personal project, including the front end, game logic, and the development of the bot AI.

This is an implementation of a local board game with rules similar to checkers,

NodeThreader

https://github.com/Jimmar/NodeThreader
A personal open-source side project made with MEVN stack (MongoDB, Express, Vue.js, and Node.js) that can be used to fetch a tweet thread from Twitter using Twitter APIs and display them as a single article for easier reading.

I solo worked on this project including developing both the frontend and the backend and the whole CI/CD pipeline for both parts.

Services Reporting Platform

During my tenure at Zain Telecommunication Company, I worked on a project that involved retrieving metrics from various departments' services in CSV files. The main objective was to generate performance reports for these services.

This project included the development of a script that was scheduled to run on a weekly basis. Its purpose was to generate graphical reports covering a 6-month period and then send these reports to management via email.

In addition to the automated reporting script, the project featured a web portal. This portal allowed users to create customized reports for specific timeframes.

My responsibilities in this project included writing the script, setting up and configuring a local Ubuntu server, and providing ongoing maintenance and support once the project was live.

Zain Al Shuhoor Android App

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.Zainkw.ZainIslamic&hl=en&gl=US
During my employment at Zain Telecommunication Company, one of my responsibilities included developing the Android version of their Ramadan App, "Zain al Shuhoor." This involved utilizing Java and the Android SDK to create the app, which was then made available on the Google Play Store.

The app provided users with essential features such as a Ramadan calendar displaying prayer times, access to religious videos streamed from a server, and the ability to listen to recitations of the Holy Quran. My duties encompassed not only the initial development of the app but also its ongoing maintenance over the subsequent year.
