A Customizable Pipeline

I developed this customizable pipeline for my master thesis. It generates maze-like levels using cellular automation, creates protocol meta language (PROMELA) code for the game level WRT custom rules, and verifies the game level. The procedure is automated and customizable.

GoF Design Patterns' Implementations in C++

This CMake project includes implementations of Gang of Four (GoF) design patterns. All the patterns included in the project are unit-tested with the help of a tiny unit testing library of acutest.

Simple Flutter Calculator App

A Material-based Flutter calculator app fully developed by me. The purpose was to get familiar with Dart and how to develop and deploy Flutter applications, especially in the Android setups. For calculations, I have used expression trees.

An e-commerce Flutter Mobile App using Firebase and Stripe

The app is developed by using Flutter and dart language with the help of Node.js scripts. The scripts are used to change the Firebase product databases and Stripe payments. The project is still a work-in-progress and can change over time.
