Custom Grid

I developed a custom grid from scratch with multiple features:
• customization of the number of columns and rows
• possibility to add elements to the grid with the application calculating the best-fit position for placing those elements
• possibility to change dimensions and placements of the elements using drag-and-drop and resize

Due to the required customization, all features were made from scratch, and not imported from other libraries, using plain JavaScript and Windows mouse events.

Manufacturing Administration Tool

An Angular project designed to help the client manage its clients and help them configure their manufacturing devices. The project had different Angular applications for each main module, loaded on the spot when the user accessed a specific page. All the applications used components from a shared private UI library of already customized components.

I helped design the architecture using microservices for the front end, as per the client's requirement.
