Jun 2015 - Dec 2015
  • Developed embedded software written in C++ for portable satellite terminals.
  • Improved overall quality and testability by building a hardware device simulator in Python using the Linux CUSE interface to implement device drivers in user space.
  • Refactored a proof-of-concept Android web-app into a production ready application that communicates with the terminals in real-time.
Languages (proficient): Kotlin, Java, TypeScript, JavaScript (ES6), Python, Xtend
Languages (intermediate): Swift, C++, VHDL, MATLAB, Go
Frameworks & Libraries: ReactJS, VueJS, Kotlin Coroutines, Kotlinx Serialization, Spring Boot, Spark, Gradle, Android, Bazel, Xtext, RxJava, Maven, Make, Firebase Suite
Hooks: Plugin driven architecture framework for Kotlin-based platforms.
  • Heavily inspired by Webpacks Tapable library for JS.
  • Consists of variety of typed hooks to service different use cases.
  • Published with Kotlin compiler plugin to limit redundant overhead.

Uses: Kotlin, Coroutines, Arrow Meta, Gradle

Auto Gradle plugin: Brings simple automated release management to Gradle based projects.
  • Automated releases powered by pull request labels.
  • Native Gradle plugin enables typed configuration within Gradle build files.

Uses: TypeScript, Kotlin, Gradle

Clockwyse: Emergency alerting platform for serving emergency alerts through digital signage.
  • Web portal enables administration and integration with a modern, easy-to-follow UI.
  • Multiplatform clients allow for device flexibility (includes Android, iOS, ChromeOS, and web).
  • Kotlin-based Android app was created to serve as a device policy controller to provide a dedicated device experience for maximum stability.

Uses: Kotlin, JavaScript, TypeScript, VueJS, Firebase Suite

Sudoku Solver: Two implementations of this exist, the original in Python and the other in React JavaScript.
Originally written to use only logic, it has been revamped to use a combination of logic and DFS. The Python GUI was developed in PySide, which will soon allow the user to input puzzles, save puzzles, and load new puzzles.

Uses: Python, PySide, JavaScript, React

Social Media App (Android team): A localized, content driven, photo-sharing mobile application.
The server, written in Go, provides complete RESTful endpoints that allows for easy requests from within the Android app. The app itself creates a slick, material environment that emphasizes ease of use. The material-camera library provided a neat, material media capturing environment, but did not have still-shot functionality. As part of this project, still-shot functionality was added to material-camera.

Uses: Java, Retrofit2, Glide, material-camera

Pandroid: A custom Pandora client for Android written in Kotlin.
Originally created as an experiment to learn Kotlin, this quickly became a full fledged project. While trying to follow best practices, the MVP design pattern was incorporated and allows for highly functional and practical modularity.

Uses: Kotlin, Ktor, Compose UI, Retrofit2, Picasso, RxJava

Jimmy Search: An ironic implementation of our attempt to de-automate a search engine.
The site was created to allow for users to submit searches, which Jimmy would be prompted to answer. As part of the Android team, I developed the admin app for answering the searches.

The site was featured on Hacker News, Product Hunt, and Web Designer News, creating a huge influx of searches of which Jimmy is still answering.

Uses: Go, JavaScript, Java
