  • Fieldbook | Express.js and Backbone.js (Development)

    Fieldbook can be thought of as an online spreadsheet but with more functionalities. You can share your book with other users, you can link sheets, and also you can connect the Fieldbook using the API.

    This app was developed with an Express.js back-end and Backbone.js front-end; it also used MongoDB and PostgreSQL as their database. Fieldbook has a well-established CI/CD process with well-written unit and behavior-driven tests. It uses GitHub, CircleCI, and Heroku as their automated deployment process. For this project, I've worked as a full-stack developer for over one year.

    The site has been shut down due to the lack of organic growth.

  • PullingHub | Meteor and Blaze (Development)

    PullingHub is an online platform for managing truck-racing events. It has an admin back-end and also a user front-end for registering the event, and updating information.

    It was created with a Meteor/Blaze stack and deployed to a Galaxy host. Unit tests were also implemented. All on my own, I built this entire website from the front-end to back-end and also handled the deployment to the server.

  • Stylisted | Booking Beauty Appointments (Development)

    Stylisted is a website and mobile application that allows women to book in-home hair styling and makeup appointments from a network of vetted freelance beauty professionals.

  • 9Flats | Peer-to-peer Property Rentals (Development)

    9Flats is a web platform where you can find a new kind of accommodation: vacation rentals, apartments, and guest houses which are owned by friendly locals from across the world.

    9Flats was developed with a RoR back-end with traditional JavaScript and jQuery. No SPA frameworks were used. For this project, I worked as the front-end developer for over six months.
