Coronavirus Alert

It is a mobile app for the citizens and an admin web dashboard for the government. I felt the need to do something to help the world with my available resources. The mobile app is built with React Native, a back end in Node.js, and web scraping with Puppeteer.

I implemented an analysis of InSAR satellite images to analyze terrain and civil structure deformation. I also built dynamic cloud infrastructure to optimize times and cost of high performing batches. The front end was built in Vue.js and a back end in Node.js and Python.

Marta Torte Roma

I built the website and business plan that provides artistic cakes on delivery in Rome and built with AngularJS and PHP. It is a static website that's easy to use with SEO optimization and an effective user experience.

Negozio E-shop

I dropshipped an eCommerce website managed by the CMS Joomla and VirtueMart. I made a custom Joomla component to import the catalog in XML format. The dropshipping system allows me to have access to an extensive inventory without having a physical warehouse. This technique has allowed me to create eCommerces with no particular investment in terms of money.

Film Stream Online
I built a desktop application for personal use at the age of 17. It was created in Visual Basic 2010 .NET, and it enables searching and watching movies while streaming. It shows information and trailers by getting data using PHP web scraping on some trusted websites.

After choosing the film, a user with a simple click could display an iframe to the movie from Megavideo. The product allows you to bypass the advertising and change the IP after 75 minutes (Megavideo limited the streaming after 75 minutes), you can also set a timer to shut down the PC automatically. It uses a MySQL database and PHP back end.
