  • Electron and PWA Puzzle Game (Development)

    The goal was to build a demo app - a puzzle game that could be installed as a desktop application, and also available as a web app (specifically a PWA). The web app was implemented in React and TypeScript. The desktop version is an Electron app that wraps the React app. Also, the web app is a fully-fledged PWA (progressive web app). As a PWA, it is installable and live on the user's home screen, without the need for an app store.

  • Mobile Boutique App (Development)

    The app was written in React Native and TypeScript. Our team developed a single codebase out of which we were able to publish several branded apps, with different styles, translated into different languages, and aimed at different markets. The biggest challenge in this project was maintaining the configuration so that the app could easily be published under different brands from one shared codebase.

  • Highly Customizable eCommerce Platform for Travel Industry (Development)

    The project was a full-stack web application with React on the front end and Java 8 and Spring on the back end. Our team built an eCommerce platform delivered to enterprise clients and used by consumers that could be customized to the needs of both. Developing only a single codebase, we were able to build applications with different styles and business models. Our team paid particular attention to security, according to the OWASP best practices and standards regarding the development of web applications.

  • Internal ERP with Elixir and GraphQL (Development)

    The main goal was to develop a production-quality app with Elixir and Phoenix Framework, serving a GraphQL API on the back end, and React with Relay on the front end. I was able to fully explore the advantages and drawbacks of the Elixir language with Phoenix, Absynthe, and Ecto frameworks. I learned a lot about the GraphQL API - its blessings and curses from both front end and back-end perspectives.

  • Android App for Home Automation (Development)

    The app was written in Kotlin, using Dagger2 for dependency injection, RxJava, Retrofit for data fetching, and Google Location and Maps API. The app was communicating with a REST API serving the home automation data from thermostats, e.g., the current temperature, or the currently set temperature according to the schedule. The goal was to demonstrate the possible use case of a home automation app that could monitor and configure the intelligent thermostats in real-time.
