Children's Spy Agency

https://www.csa.world/
Role: Firebase Consultant

Children's Spy Agency is a mobile app that teaches kids (5+ years old) critical thinking, computer science, and creativity in a playful way.

Since kids usually don't have their own email accounts and may have trouble creating and remembering strong passwords, the app has an unusual way of user authentication. Kids sign up with their parent's email address (or guardian) but log in using their nicknames and emoji password.

I was hired to extend the Firebase authentication and database to allow this unusual way of user authentication.

Technologies: Firebase, Express.js, Node.js, SendGrid, JavaScript

Firestore Schema Validator

https://github.com/bypatryk/firestore-schema-validator
A Node.js package for elegant object modeling for Google Cloud Firestore, inspired by Mongoose and datalize. It allows creating data schemas, validating data before storing it to Cloud Firestore, and firing hooks when events occur.

Time Glitch

https://store.steampowered.com/app/2705800/Time_Glitch/
A Unity-based game. Time Glitch invites you to immerse yourself in a short, unique blend of dungeon crawling and time manipulation. You find yourself at the end of a grand tabletop campaign, facing an undead king who wields the power of time itself. However, every defeat sends you back to the gates of the final dungeon, where your experience began.
