PayPal-like Payment Gateway

Using this gateway, a merchant can process their credit card and ACH payments through these API endpoints. Also, they can pull reports through the API.

I implemented the API from scratch along with all supporting tools in the back end (e.g., Windows services, website to load a merchant, Recurring payments software, integration with the processor).

iPhone API

I developed an API to interact with an iPhone/Android app. This app fetches data from the server and displays patient medication history and reminders on screen. Implemented authentication and push notifications in the server side. The app displays drug images and patient profiles.

ASP.NET MVC-based Content Management Website
I developed a website where the user can create and add dynamic web pages through an admin website. The admin website has many features and functionality of a content management system.
