An application to provide STEM education to K–8 students using interactive games and different types of fun activities.

It has activities to give students ideas about science, electronics, physics, and other subjects. This product also includes different simulators.

Poulta is an agri-tech product to help farmers with early detection, prediction, and prevention of losses across their poultry farm value chain. With real-time integrated data and actionable insights, users can always make better decisions.

Gunnebo BGR

Gunnebo BGR is a desktop application that works as a service to authenticate the user passing through the mechanical gates of Gunnebo.

This desktop application allows users to configure different scanners and Intel RealSense Camera on a different port. Based on the configuration, the application validates the request to open the door based on the barcode scanned using a barcode scanner or facial recognition image captured using Intel RealSense camera; based on the information, it opens the Gunnebo gate by sending the command over Modbus protocol.

This application was developed using .NET Windows Forms and Entity Framework. Redis was also used in the development of this application.

This application runs on some of the international airports in the USA, e.g., Denver International Airport.

Adept Data Generator
Developed a service that takes the input and scales up the data based on the different types of data fed.

It creates the bins, detects the pattern in the data, and generates fake data based on those patterns. It also exports the signature in such a way that signature can generate approximate data in the future.

Medico-legal Certificates
This software was developed for the Government of Punjab and deployed in District and Tehsil headquarters hospitals, where it is used to enter the medical-legal and post-mortem reports. This software aimed to solve the problem of fabricated reports and give an eagle view to the central government in the capital. This system was a success, and hundreds of hospitals have this software.

I built the software using .NET Core and MS SQL Server. I used the code-first approach to build this software and deployed it to IIS.
