  • Android Deivce Cloud

    The system connects users and their remote Android devices, provides thousands of Android apps downloaded by a crawler, allows users to distribute massive platform verification tasks to the device, and manages task reports.

    The entire system consists of an agent that connects local devices to the cloud, a crawler that downloads apps from multiple Android app stores, including Google Play, a task distribution system, and a web application as the user portal.

    I led the other three less experienced engineers and was responsible for the architecture, prototype, and detailed implementation.

    The project was public at the 2015 Intel Software Professional Conference, which further gives me a top performance review.

    This complex system involved multiple programming languages and frameworks, including Java, Python, Twisted, PHP, Laravel, Bootstrap, etc.

  • Service and Manufacturing Software for Trophon2

    I architected the JavaFX-based service and manufacturing software in an MVC fashion. It consumes the REST API provided by the trophon2 device and is capable of communicating with multiple devices. It utilizes HTTPS client authentication to verify user identities. The app is heavily unit-tested including the business logic and GUI in headless mode.
