    • Led the development of an app (iOS/Mac/Android) using Objective-C, Swift, and Android SDK.
    • Led the development of a 3D weather maps system that beautifies weather map tiles on server and projects them through beautiful shaders on a 3D globe on a mobile app. I have customized an open source 3D engine to support it.
    • Developed a prediction system that predicts user location on a specific hour and customizes a non-intrusive weather alert using Python and Scikit-learn.
    • Led the development of a back-end server for the frontend apps serving weather information, weather maps and push notifications to hundreds of thousands of monthly active users using PHP, AWS and MySQL.
    • Developed a 2D game on iPhone using Cocos2d and extending it with 3D models support.
