Commonwealth Portals Development and Support

Worked on the public-facing and internal portals of Commonwealth Financial Network as a senior full-stack developer integrated into the team of front-end, back-end, and database developers, designers, testers, and managers.

I provided support for many site features, including OpenText CMS pages and ASP.NET legacy forms. I developed a React component library and React forms application to replace legacy forms. I also helped refactor, rewrite, and optimize the existing legacy codebase. I participated in code reviews and technical design decisions and mentored junior developers.

Elemy Portals

Worked on the public-facing and internal portals of Elemy (former Sprout Therapy) as a senior front-end developer integrated into the international team of front-end, back-end, and database developers, designers, testers, and managers (US, Canada, Ukraine).

I implemented many site features, including several workflow solutions and a generic workflow component that separates the workflow definition, logic, and metadata from the presentation. The "Sign-up Flow" is publicly available at Elemy.com/parent-booking. I helped in the refactoring, rewriting, and optimizing of the existing legacy codebase and participated in code reviews and technical design sessions.

Client: Elemy (US)

Role: Front-end developer

Technologies: React, Redux, React Hook Form, React Query, GraphQL, TypeScript, Jest, styled-components

Tools: Spinnaker, Launch Darkly, Figma, Jira

Visual Annotation Tool

Implemented a visual annotation tool in React to manually process camera feeds for fish farms. React Hooks, HTML5, Konva, Open CV, and React-three were used for image processing and to render 2D and 3D visualization. Rendering was optimized to avoid performance issues when working with hundreds of annotations. The tool supports pan and zoom, selection, highlighting, drag and drop, and undo/redo functionalities to work with visual elements. The Keycloak-js library was used for authentication. Integration and E2E tests were implemented using Jest/Enzyme. Back-end services were mocked for E2E tests.

Logistics Application Wizard

Worked on the HTML5 wizard-like user interface of a logistics application for a startup company as a front-end developer. The React SPA wizard heavily utilizes the HTML5 canvas component to provide seamless visualization and interaction when working with thousands of items (like drag-and-drop, undo/redo, zooming, selecting, highlighting, resizing, moving, rotating, and copy-pasting items).

Startup Company Homepage

Served as a front-end developer on the pixel-perfect reactive implementation of a new product's homepage and contact page for a startup company in React and TypeScript. The implementation generates eight breakpoints using SCSS to support two different layouts—mobile and desktop—from 240px to 1980px screen width and all major browsers, including IE11.

Client: A startup company

Role: Front-end developer

Technologies: React, TypeScript, Material-UI, Sass, Axios, and REST

Drilling Location Request System

Contributed to developing a new React-Redux single-page application as a senior full-stack developer and architect using .NET Core, React, TypeScript, and Azure. The application provided the possibility of drilling request creation for users and contained an approval workflow. It contained a complex form with many tabs and collapsible expanders; therefore, React updates and Redux-form state change optimizations were key. I migrated components from the client's non-SPA design framework to React and implemented Excel import functionality using the Open XML SDK. I implemented complex components from scratch (Typeahead, FileUpload for large attachments, formatted DMS input for geographical coordinates), cross-browser support (IE11), and a reactive user interface.

Camera Feed Feature Detection

The purpose of the application is to process images sent by Edge devices to an Azure function by using Azure's custom vision API. Tagged images are saved into blob storage, while meta-data is saved into a Cosmos database. Users can view the camera feeds in a streaming player or by individual images. Events and email/SMS notifications are generated based on user subscriptions and user profile preferences. Active Directory authentication and role-based authorization are used. Managed service identities are used to connect to resources. All keys are stored in a key vault.

EIT Business Planning System

The purpose of the system is to facilitate the preparation of the KIC business plans and budgets by clarifying the requirements in terms of structure, content, level of detail, and categories of information; the nature and scope of information to be provided for KIC added value activities; and KIC complementary activities.

The SharePoint OOB user interface has been replaced with a custom-developed UI which satisfied usability requirements for structured input of meta-data, in-place editing for multiple rows simultaneously, easy input of budget line hierarchy, validation of in-place edited meta-data on-the-fly, on-the-fly evaluation of formulas for cost tables during structured input, easy selection, and multiple selections during in-place editing of referenced items.

Advisory Planning System

Advisory Planning is used by the client’s advisers and agencies for their detailed annual income and strength planning and reporting. The implemented spreadsheet component calculates the formulas on the fly and can be used from any popular web browser. The calculation engine also supports the backward propagation of modified summary values. The solution has a layered and distributed architecture with the front end deployed into the DMZ and the back end put behind the firewall accessible through web services.

I replaced the previous Excel-based FPA solution used by 3000+.

Customer Approval System

CAS is used by customs officers and travelers worldwide at many exit points at different airports (Singapore, Finland, Jordan) for supporting the VAT refund process for tax-free shopping.

The SOA-based system identifies travelers by credit cards, passports, or bar codes on invoices, and validates the bought products for a VAT refund. The approval transaction is digitally stamped by customs.

The system contains a very complicated and comprehensive rules-based validation engine for country-dependent legal validation, black/white list validation, and random rejection for which parameters can be scheduled depending on the time of the day. The system complies with very strict performance and security measurements (PCI-DSS, PKI, transport-level security).

MediVIR BI Solution for Hospitals

Led the analysis, design, and implementation of a Microsoft BI product initially developed for the Uzsoki Hospital, which provides monitoring capabilities on a daily basis for the top management of the institution.

Using such a rapidly loaded monitoring tool, the hospital achieved a 2 – 4% cost savings on its budget.

The solution is based on SQL Server BI and Excel dashboards to provide users with eye-catching dashboards with slicers, drill-down capabilities, geospatial visualization, and self-service BI functionalities, not only for the presentation of the data but for the whole authoring process, including extraction, analysis, aggregation, custom expression calculation, and data model building.
