    • Led the development of products of the company. Managed the development process—building tasks and making deadlines. Created custom applications written in PHP and Angular for clients.
    • Developed a survey and quiz application by using lightweight frameworks (PHP API and Angular). The application allows teachers (users) to quickly create quizzes and send the challenges to students. In this way, a teacher can get clear-and-fast feedback about the progress of a class. I also developed an API that was shared with the clients.
    • Built an LMS system that helps to share content/updates to remote workers. The application includes progress, notifications, users management and of course content management in a hierarchical way (optional). This system was integrated with the quiz application so that the workers could do a test on the content they learned.
    • Developed a simulator manager which allows the client to create simulators of devices or applications. It works by uploading images/screenshots, decides upon a clickable area, and adds tooltips. The admin can create and manage the screens of simulation and share it with the students/workers.
    • Provided recommendations on useful tools and services to help achieve business and product goals.
    Technologies: CSS3, HTML5, SQL, Docker, Linux, Angular, JavaScript, PHP
