Warehouse Management

A SPA application for warehouse routines automation.

I acted as a full-stack developer and created both back-end and front-end parts of the application. I communicated with a UI designer to integrate screens designs created in an external tool into the application.

This application significantly reduced the number of person-hours spent on routine duties like moving product pallets from one slot to another.

Food Products Manufacturing Recipe Management

A SPA application for automation of food cooking on manufacturers.

I acted as a full-stack developer and created both back-end and front-end parts of the application. I also integrated with an external legacy database which was the source of truth for a previous version. I created a mocking factory to work with database-like data in environments where the database is not accessible.

This application allows food preparation to be more predictable and straightforward, with all exceptional cases processed in a user-friendly way.

Google and Facebook Ads Campaigns AI Optimization Tool

https://unyte.ai/platform/
A SPA application that aims to control the budget of a large number of ads campaigns on Google and Facebook. The application uses AI to determine the required budget based on selected campaign user activities.

I was a full-stack developer and developed both the back-end and front-end parts of the application.

Realtime Video Streaming

An application created to perform live streaming from different devices like drones, quadcopters, and smartphones.

I was a back-end developer and created RESTful API services with real-time communication, which later were used to replace direct calls to the Firebase real-time database. I also developed an authentication server that replaces Firebase Auth and allows authenticating users by local Firebase accounts and third-party providers like Google or other customer-specific providers.

Tests Management System

A web application that is integrated into a legacy huge standalone Windows application. This approach allows improving and modernizing the legacy application to a contemporary one step-by-step, instead of doing this at once—with a risk of breaking everything.

I was a front-end developer but had to fix a communication mechanism from the Windows application side.
