Programmable Smart Thermostat

A programmable smart thermostat I built for my own use, using a Raspberry Pi, relays, temperature sensors, and an ESP8266 for the hardware; Firebase and FastAPI for the back end; and Vue.js, Quasar, Capacitor, and Electron.

The thermostat records environment temperatures and keeps track of how much time the heater has been on. It's also programmable for every hour of every day of the week, providing total customization for users to control the home's temperature.

The platform provides user accounts, and each account can hold more than one device. This part is still in development, and I am the only user at this time. The Android app is Capacitor-based, and the web page uses Firebase hosting. Users can monitor home temperatures and the elapsed time heater was set to on, set target temperatures, activate a manual of automatic modes, and edit heater programs from the app.

People Data Labs Python Client

A Python SDK client integrating calls to People Data Labs' APIs. I was reponsible for the conversion of their existing JavaScript SDK client to Python. I also cooperated with other developers delivering the SDK client.


A large public database for the net-zero emissions target of 2050. I played a pivotal role in developing the back end of the PoC in a short time for it to be presented at COP28, being the main developer on the team while managing a sub-team of three people.
