2020 - 2021
The Surfing App
  • Contributed to the creation of a surfing photography marketplace. Surfers can look at the photos based on location, date, photographer, etc. They can also buy any of them without interacting directly with the photographers.
  • Collaborated closely with my cofounder to release the first demo in a short period of time, which helped us to get to know the market demands better.
  • Coded the entire API with a friendly startup tech stack. The startup was highly scalable, and it was easy to onboard new developers as needed.
  • Took charge of a significant number of code reviews and remote meetings to shape the best version of the product that we had in mind.

Open Source
Caesura is a framework that aims to achieve highly-scalable applications taking advantage of the ReSwift (Redux in Swift) framework. It also contains some optional tools to correctly apply such a pattern without messing it up in the process (many possible reasons).

Leash is a network abstraction layer based on the interceptor pattern. The main purpose is to avoid writing your own network layer in every new project. It also contains a default set of tools that are used in almost all projects.
