Rank Media

https://rankomedia.com/
I built the website from scratch, achieving an impressive loading speed of 95% on mobile and 100% on desktop. It's Gutenberg-based with many custom content blocks that allow content writers to easily add visually attractive sections throughout the website.

Besides the amazing content that the website offers, it also benefits from various interactive functionalities such as tables of contents, pop-ups, progress bars, social sharing widgets, etc., all custom-coded for maximum efficiency.

Another interesting thing I would like to mention is the locations tree, which includes US states and the cities within those states. The tree is composed of parent-child links, starting from an interactive US clickable map, a feature that is not just interesting but also helps with the local ranking in Google.

Opster

https://opster.com/
I redesigned and optimized the website to its present state. Also, I implemented ACF flexible layouts and custom Gutenberg blocks. Another task was maximizing the loading speed, and I obtained the following Google PageSpeed Insights result: 98% on mobile and 99% on desktop.

Word on Fire

This is one of the most complex projects I've worked on. I implemented a plugin for migrating the data of hundreds of thousands of users from one LMS to another. The database mappings were so complex and different (talking about users and user data, courses, lessons, assignments, quizzes, quiz results, and more). The process needed moderation to run smoothly without overwhelming the server, and the simulations took a considerable amount of time, but the final run was perfect.

The client also asked me to implement a plugin that hooks into the LearnDash API and WordPress REST API, performing new custom actions.

Third Space Learning

https://thirdspacelearning.com/
A one-time project that turned into a long-term contract. This project was like a marathon. The deadline brought me to exhaustion, but I finished faster than expected.
I redesigned the website twice because of the lightning-fast changes within the organization, implemented new features from simple to complex, and optimized the loading speed at a level the website never saw before.

Social Sharing 9

https://wordpress.org/plugins/social-sharing-9/
I developed a customizable WordPress plugin that enables you to display social sharing icons in different places on your website. It creates an admin page where you can select all your options, chose what social networks you’ll activate, chose sizes, colors, and even set a preferred order. I built this just for fun.

MobileCoin Drops

https://drops.mobilecoin.com/
We started with the scope of creating a plugin that adds a new payment method in WooCommerce, a payment method that enables customers to pay with their cryptocurrency (MobileCoin specifically). Going further, I implemented three different store versions, each with a custom theme.
The Drops version is the most unique because it has a special feature where you can turn simple products into Drops, which are available to purchase for a limited period, after which they expire.

https://addictcontrollers.auvenit.ro/build-xbox/
I built a custom shop that enables you to build your custom controller. You can change parts and colors, add custom texts, and in the end, order your custom product.

The customizer options are manageable on the WordPress admin side within ACF fields.

For the front-end part, I relied on my JavaScript/jQuery coding abilities and came up with the exact complex-detailed functionality required by the client.
