  • Warehouse Automation Project (Development)

    I designed and implemented an algorithm in a web application which controls robot movements on rails in a warehouse. It was meant to help warehouse workers move heavy cargo in an automatised and time-efficient manner. The algorithm was tested in real environment with multiple robots being used simultaneously.

    Technologies: Groovy on Rails, MySQL, Groovy, HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery, GORM, GSP

  • Healthcare Industry Project (Development)

    I worked as part of a team on a healthcare project which served as an evaluation tool for medical staff in the USA. It was a key role which required daily communication with the client as we worked on designing functional and technical requirements of the system, designing and implementing those solutions, and then maintaining them later on. The system is still in use today.

    Technologies: Node.js, AngularJS, Express.js, MongoDB, Heroku

  • Hotel Staff and Guests Project (Development)

    I designed and implemented a web application used in hotels where various types of workers were able to log in and monitor guest reservations, make orders to vendors, monitor the number of items in the hotel reserves or in the kitchen, and more.

    The guests could also log in and give orders to the hotel staff using the application and monitor their expenses.

    The framework used was Groovy on Rails.

  • Artificial Intelligence Project (Development)

    I created a 2D simulator with a GUI in MATLAB for a swarm algorithm (distributed intelligence) where N robots were released into a dynamically created environment: simulating a wind farm on a sea surface, and inspecting each of the windmills in a time efficient manner. I used various cool algorithms such as A* and BFS, also used dynamic programming concepts for performance optimizations.

    The robots acted as single units, not knowing what the other was doing at any given time. They had to communicate with each other both directly (when and if they meet) and by using the environment (stigmergy) exchanging newly gathered data.

  • CRM Project (Development)

    I designed and implemented a desktop application which serves as a simpler version of a CRM which shows all the client data retrieved from the company's Microsoft SQL Server database.

    Technologies: WPF, .NET

  • D3.js Charting Library (Development)

    I designed and implemented a robust charting library (containing 12 different charts) using Vanilla JavaScript and D3.js lib.

    The basic idea was to create a robust library that receives a config (or multiple configs) and data objects and creates all the requested charts based on their configurations on a given HTML page.

    The charts were robust, independent of one another, you could update their data, and see it in real-time with cool animations. The charts were also responsive to different screen sizes.

  • Web Store | ERP Integration Project (Development)

    I designed and implemented a REST API back-end service used for the synchronization of data between a Shopify web store and an old legacy ERP system. It registered domains for deployment servers, setup Docker containers, used Docker-Compose for the integration of Docker containers, set up Nginx, set up SSL certificates on Nginx, and automated deployment using Bitbucket pipelines.

    Technologies: Django-Python, PostgreSQL, Docker, Docker-Compose, Bitbucket Pipelines, Nginx, Gunicorn, Redis, Celery, JavaScript, jQuery, Shopify (Liquid and Shopify Webhooks)

  • The Comprehensive Guide to JavaScript Design Patterns (Publication)
    As a good JavaScript developer, you strive to write clean, healthy, and maintainable code. While you solve interesting and unique challenges, you’ve likely found that you’re often writing code that looks similar to the code for an entirely different problem you’ve handled before. You may not know it, but you’ve used a design pattern.
