Summerhill Hospital

A Mendix-based application built with Mendix Studio, Cloud Connectors, and AWS. I built the UI and integrated data and APIs. Used responsive UI with Atlas UI to provide a seamless experience on desktop and mobile devices.

Agent Application | Afiniti Mega Cloud
A support center application for a private cloud application and as a front-end engineer, I liaised with back-end developers and DevOps to deliver a fast and optimized front end with WebSockets, webhooks, and SIP protocols, where I was also tasked to revamp the UI for a better and improved UX for the business and its agents.

Quick Configuration
An application developed to abstract the complicated process of creating and starting the support center for laymen and small and medium-sized businesses.

I led the project performance, communicated with the team and manager to stay up to date with requirements, and discussed any ambiguity beforehand to avoid stress workloads in fixing them.

This project focused on the analysis and statistics of companies in various regions and service centers. It included the management of employees and time of service centers, earnings, rates, information tracking of services offered by service centers, and graphs for better understanding and overview.

I developed the back end in Python with the Serverless framework, built a database with Alembic and SQLAlchemy, and contributed to the Mapbox implementation.

Sonic Staff

We applied a secure payment method for payments to workers on mobile applications, built a feature that enables employers to manage shifts and tasks on the web application, and used Twilio and Stripe.

Optimal HCM

The project creates reports for the company and shows the current consumption of human resources. The custom-generated reports help identify which department in a company is spending more revenue and which is underpaid to help manage revenue and profits while predicting future resource development.


It is an Android application that provides the service to buy groceries and pick and drop items. I used Firebase real-time database for data storing and Google Maps API for real-time tracking.
