Coaching Class Aggregator

I was the CTO of studysid.com, a platform that helps students find the ideal coaching classes and private tutors according to their requirements. This was, up to this moment, the biggest sell I've done.

For this project, I worked on user flows, designs, tech architecture, and the development lifecycle.

Housing.com

It all started with a desktop application made in Backbone.js that we decided to migrate to React after adding SSR back in 2016.

Getting a first-hand experience on React, we made a Mobile Lite application on React, also turning it into a PWA. From then I assisted in multiple projects like Assist made in Angular 4 and the Housing Falcon project.

Later, I was responsible for training freshers on the front-end stack, and I also led a team of six developers.
