The Most Amazing...

... thing I've created is Server Monitoring App in ReactJS. It monitors over 150 servers and displays their performances, notifies us when any of the server is down and many more.

Projects

UtooChat.com (Development)
https://utoochat.com/
UtooChat is a tool for website owners that allows them to add an online chat support system to their websites. Users can sign up and copy code snippets onto their websites to install the service. I worked as a system architect and full stack developer in a team of 4 people. We implemented the presentation website and user logic with Laravel, MySQL, and Twitter Bootstrap. The chat application was created using AngularJS for the front-end, Node.js and Socket.IO for socket and message passing, Laravel for business logic, MongoDB and MySQL to save the chat history and access log, and Redis as a layer between PHP and Socket.IO for the messaging protocol.
Plupload Angular Directive (Other amazing things)
https://github.com/sahusoftcom/plupload-angular-directive
An open source module developed in AngularJS to ease the development process for a file upload component in the front-end. I co-developed it with my teammate and this project grew rapidly with 31 stars and 16 forks.
MeowFoto.com (Development)
http://meowfoto.com/

Meowfoto is a web-based editor that can apply different types of filters to photos and is integrated with Facebook in order to allow the download of user photos. It also has a collage generator built in HTML5 using KnockoutJS.

Technologies used:

  • Custom MVC with PHP and MySQL
  • KnockoutJS for front-end collage module (with drag-n-drop)
  • Facebook SDK and Graph APIs
  • ImageMagick for image processing
  • Twitter Bootstrap for front-end design
  • Third party Shell scripts for image processing
  • Operating system: CentOS 6

Challenges that I faced and how I solved them:

  • Users needed to upload their final collage result to Facebook. The editor worked in HTML markup (using KnockoutJS), which was needed to be converted to image formats like JPEG or PNG. The front-end app exported the JSON data that was processed in the back-end to get the same result. PhantomJS was not an option as it was quite experimental at this time.
  • There were 500+ concurrent users and it was impossible to handle this amount of image processing on a single server. With the help of another system admin, I used the AWS Elastic server with a front load balancer and two clusters to carry out the image processing.
