  • High Altitude Personal Training Website (Development)

    I used jQuery and Angular to develop the front-end and worked with a ColdFusion developer.

    This project required that I develop a web application to manage the scheduling for a group of health clubs.

    The user portal automatically makes an appointment with trainers and customers can rate their experiences with trainers. For the admin portal, it has all the functionalities to run the health club easily.

    In this project, I mainly worked on the front-end parts, but I also worked on the back-end part of the user and admin portal to fix the API issues.

    When I took over the project, the back-end was almost finished and the front-end was in bad shape. The back-end was clean, but the front-end was really a mess. I refactored the existing front-end codebase and rebuilt it to so that it was well-structured and clean. The clients were very satisfied with the result and project ended successfully.

  • Eden Revolution | Yii-based eCommerce Website (Development)

    This project required that I build an eCommerce website for women fashion items. I used Yii for the back-end and AngularJS to build the front-end.

    In this project, I worked as a full-stack developer and single-handedly built the well-structured back-end and front-end of the website.

    The proudest moment of this project was when I built the back-end and front-end from the scratch as well as working as a DevOps engineer.

    I applied all the software engineering skills to run this project successfully. During this project, I consolidated my software engineering skills.

  • Online PDF Editor (Development)

    The idea of this project was to build a system where you can easily manipulate PDF documents online.

    There are various online PDF editors in the market, but this one was unique. This system had all the functionalities needed for you to easily edit a PDF on an online editor.

    System Functionalities:
    • Import the existing PDF documents
    • Insert bookmarks on pages
    • Insert links on pages
    • Rotate the pages
    • Page reordering
    • Crop the existing pages
    • Add metadata to documents
    • Export edited documents to a PDF format

    To implement this functionality, I used Node.js/Express.js to build the back-end and AngularJS for the front-end.

    As you can see, this project is a big one, so the most critical part of this project was to determine the appropriate technologies and control the source code which I managed successfully.

  • MCT Live for MCT Trading Company (Development)

    Built specifically for the secondary market by secondary marketing professionals, MCTlive! is the most powerful platform available for day-to-day loan pipeline management, trade positions management, and loan sale best execution.

    The platform was engineered to put the capital markets function we provide in the hands of our customers, allowing them to build their capital markets competency inside their own shop.

    Many of the complex yet repetitive tasks required that the secondary marketing was automated within MCTlive!, freeing your time and resources for other high-value functions.

    I also worked with Phil Rasori, COO of MCT Trading to develop this website.
