  • Medicover

    I created a simple website for an agency using Laravel and integrated its custom control panel. I was provided with Photoshop designs for two resolutions; then, I created both the back-end and front using Laravel Blade templates for two languages. I then added small scripts for the front-end using the Google Closure library.

  • FitLocker

    Originally planned as a small event scheduler for trainers, the project grew into a complex system with social integration, custom news feeds, and a rich event calendar.

    The application had four major parts:
    • Front-end welcome pages on Laravel using classic Blade templates
    • Back-end API powered by Laravel
    • AngularJS application for trainers
    • AngularJS application for other users

    From the start, I handled the prototyping and development with only vague customer ideas to guide me. The Laravel website and AngularJS application had custom adaptive styles based on the Bootstrap framework. Grunt was used as the primary building tool.

  • Interactive Education Catalog and Database

    I worked as a back-end developer on two existing Symfony-based websites. The first was a learning material database, and the second was a catalog to help children learn how to act properly on roads.

    • Unified the authorization between applications using OAuth 2, so materials created within the database could be used within the educational catalog after accounts have been linked. It also allowed the future expansion of the database to other projects.
    • Implemented a new functionality for both applications (question types and calendar events).
    • Developed a learning system, allowing users to register in the catalog as students and subscribe to courses provided by teachers (originally provided by the database), including a grading system, reviews, and statistics.
    • Added new user roles and updated the existing ones so that a user could have different roles within the custom admin panel.

  • Career4me

    Career4me is a Moodle-based learning platform for college students to help them to find their first work.

    • Created a custom theme for the project.
    • Added a lot of new plugins, including integration with an external API and new functionality to create/search resumes and vacancies.
    • Developed a motivational learning module with an interactive image-based progression, allowing students to build up their "village of knowledge," where each building changed depending on the student's progress.

  • CrossPromo

    I created a Dockerized Laravel website allowing users to browse authorized Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns and request owners to cross-promote them. The project included crawlers for Indiego and Kickstarter and implementing minimalistic Material Design using Blade templates.

  • Kover-vertolet | Online Shop Specializing in Carpets

    This Russian online platform is an excellent example of the typical projects I've made using my custom PHP-based CMS.

    • Handled both front-end and back-end development using a provided single-resolution design.
    • Implemented an admin panel that allows the complete customization of the website content, including related SEO tags, and an XLS parser to automatically update prices and availability of items.
