Happy or Not PWA
AltaML via Aquil.io – September 2020
The same client as above wanted to build a PWA in under 2 weeks. The app would tell you if your cat was happy or not and allow you to share the result on social media.
I evaluated the various tools and picked Adalo. I was able to learn Adalo and deliver the PWA within a week.

Accessible Audio Maps Application
Aquil.io – 2020
Built the React frontend for a research project that allowed businesses to create audio-enabled maps for visually impaired users and embed them on their own websites.
The maps could have multiple GeoJSON layers that would play sounds when you collided with objects or got near to them.
Pharmaceutical Drug Launch Platform
Aquil.io – 2020
Responsible for architecting and developing a platform to track the multi-year process of taking a pharmaceutical drug to market.
The frontend was built in React and utilized React hooks heavily. The dashboard rendered a directed graph using SigmaJS with bindings to React that updated in real-time in response to WebSocket events.
Hybrid PWA for booking Movers
Aquil.io – 2019
Developed a PWA using GatsbyJS and Apollo that allowed users to arrange local and cross-country moves between houses.
Half of the site was a static marketing site that pulled its content from a CMS. The other half was a dynamic application that walked the user through a series of steps to determine a price and date for the move.
The multi-step process allowed deep linking to any step, saved progress in localStorage, and involved complex async validations that changed the step a user was taken to next.
Document Collaboration Platform
Aquil.io – 2018-2019
Responsible for architecting and developing a secure document collaboration platform for a pharmaceutical company.
The frontend was built in React with deep integration with Box UI Elements. We were one of the first projects to use Box's OpenWith feature and routinely helped the Box team debug issues.
The API was built in FeathersJS and used Auth0 for authentication. The API had to communicate with Box to store and update files. RabbitMQ was used to offload batch processing.
Apple Online Store
Apple via Bitovi – 2013-2015
As a consultant with deep knowledge of CanJS, I was responsible for guiding the technical design and training the other engineering teams. Over a period of a year, we fully migrated the entire store. The code I designed and wrote is still in use today!
