A LISP Interpreter

https://github.com/prashantacharya/mal
LISP is a programming language created in the 1950s. For my final year project in college, I decided to build my own version of LISP, so my interpreter's syntax and features are similar to it.

The interpreter I created using JavaScript supports many features of the original LISP interpreter. It uses a lot of data structures and algorithms, and my data structures and algorithms improved after implementing the project.

Signetic Managed Vaccination Solution | Signetic MVS

https://signetic.com
A web application helps pharmacies deliver vaccinations and healthcare services to patients in the United States. The project was initiated to solve the problem of delivering COVID-19 vaccination, but we slowly transitioned towards providing other healthcare services.

I was involved in Signetic MVS as a full-stack developer. My tasks involved developing new features for the platform and also fixing the existing issues. As my expertise in the project grew, I mentored other team members, actively participated in estimation, and handled production releases.

Transcript Generation System with Blockchain

A full-stack application that queries transcript data from the Ed-Fi Operational Data Store (ODS), converts it to a standard format, and generates PDF transcripts. The PDF transcripts are embedded with keys generated from blockchain technology. With this security mechanism in place, the transcript could be uploaded to the server and verified. This ensures that the transcripts do not get tampered with.

As a full-stack developer in the project, I oversaw querying Ed-Fi resources, mapped the data received from the resources to a standard format, and generated the transcripts using a headless browser technology called Puppeteer. The generated transcript would then be emailed to the user.

On the front end, I developed a file upload feature and displayed the result of transcript verification. Also, I contributed to the deployment of the project and wrote Bash scripts that automate the deployment process on a Linux server.
