Work Experience

C++ and Blockchain Developer

2017 - PRESENT
Sky Group
  • Created a multithreaded C++ application for retrieving data from blockchains and processing it for financial, statistical analysis.
  • Optimized application in Go for thread contention. Optimized incoming channel distribution with a specific algorithm and maintained data integrity across the application.
  • Wrote the main multithreaded module in C++, which conducted the main financial processes.
Technologies: Crypto++, Apache Thrift, PostgreSQL, JavaScript, PHP, Boost, C++, Standard Template Library (STL), C

C++ and Go Blockchain Developer

2020 - 2022
Energi
  • Worked on the block difficulty adjustment algorithm for the blockchain in Go.
  • Fixed data corruption by fixing thread safety issues and optimized runtime operations around signature generation.
  • Implemented the internal functionality for hard fork releases in Solidity to adjust the blockchain to the new changes.
Technologies: Go, C++, Solidity, Optimization

Web Developer

2016 - 2017
Respo
  • Created a C++ add-on for Node.js for data passing to a parallel thread, processing, and returning to the JavaScript environment (Utilized the V8 JavaScript Engine api and the Libuv Library).
  • Worked on an HR system, implemented a socket-based real-time application that managed processes across the system, and optimized data channels with binary protocols.
  • Created a Node.js parallel processing add-on to analyze statistical data from chats for further AI input data. Developed binary protocols for data processing and transportation.
Technologies: Socket Programming, Vue, PostgreSQL, MySQL, MongoDB, Node.js, JavaScript, PHP

Multithreaded C++ Add-on for AI Input Processing

I wrote a Node.js add-on in C++ with the help of Google's V8 JavaScript engine API. It converted and compressed data from the JavaScript environment and passed it to the C++ application. That made the calculations and analyses based on the data type, processing multithreaded data, and creating a data graph for AI processing. The application worked extensively with FileSystem, V8 API, and sockets.

Blockchain Analyzer and Processor

This project is built in C++, which conducted the main blockchain-related operations, creating an interface for communicating with networks. It worked with Boost C++ libraries, PostgreSQL database, Libpqxx, and Crypto++.

PintOS Operating System

I am working on an educational operating system. I implemented a process scheduling algorithm, memory management, and virtual file system in Kernel by writing basic system call functionality and synchronization mechanisms for operating system functioning.
