SteemPlus

SteemPlus is my own opensource browser extension (Chrome, Opera, Firefox) adding over 30 features to 3 different websites running on the Steem blockchain.
The APP changes UI elements on the 3 websites and allow users to perform additional interactions with the blockchain, originally not accessible from the said websites.
I have been developing the extension and making it available accross browsers to its 3k+ users for over almost 2 years and it has become an ubiquitous App on the blockchain.

SteemPlus API

SteemPlus API is a Node.js project aiming to provide public APIs used by the extension and freely available to blockchain users.
These API parse information from the Steem blockchain, and also provide SteemPlus specific data.

Steem Keychain

Steem Keychain is a secure opensource wallet for storing private keys (using AES encryption) on the Steem and Avalon blockchains.
It is also an easy way to check one's value account, and perform transfers from the extension. Additionally, Keychain injects code on each new tab to let external websites make requests (for example a cryptocurrency transfer), that will be sent upon user's approval.
Although it is opensource, I was hired to develop this extension and am its main contributor.

Pacho Dashboard & Backend

Pacho is an IOT device mounted on a gas cylinder to track its usage and position.
This project was developed in the scope of the Sigfox HackingHouse IOT continent-wide (Asia) competition and was awarded the first price.
I was in charge of the deveolpment of a backend interfacing our Web App with Sigfox (IOT Operator) backend. On top of that, I developed the dashboard using React.js and Redux.

HappyQ

HappyQ was a set of native Android Apps and a Web App aiming to let customers enjoy their waiting time outside of the waiting room, by giving them an estimation of their waiting time, and an alarm to come back based on their location.
I developed this App natively for Android (Java) and the backend in PHP.
Due to financial reasons, the App never left Beta, but it is a pretty complex application that taught me a lot about mobile development.

Tanalys

I developed a set of three native Android Apps for Tanalys.
These applications are to be used by workers in plantations to collect real time data, even in the absence of 4G network.
Data inputed is concatenated in a few bytes and broadcasted to a private LORA network via a dongle plugged to the worker's tablet.
Because tablets are protected by a casing, the design had to be minimalistic with bigger buttons than normal. The challenging part was the interaction with the dongles and the LORA network, as well as the switch between the different connectivities upon availability (LORA / WiFi).
The applications were deployed privately so I don't have links to share for it.
