  • Protecting Your Valuables

    alertaBLE was our final project at Dev Bootcamp. We developed an Ionic app that connects a mobile phone to a tracking device using Bluetooth to help people keep tabs on their valuable belongings.
     
    I worked on the CSS and UI of the app. This included making sure the app/phone was correctly connecting/disconnecting to the tracking devices via bluetooth and properly showing that status via a toggle button. I also worked on allowing the user to give tracked devices nicknames.

  • Building a Brand from Scratch

    I turned getchee into a globally recognized brand within the GIS industry. This was a tough task as it took plenty of market research along with rigorous SEO/SEM trial and error.

Today, you can find getchee at the top ranks of web searches for retail market segmentation data in Asia and Africa.
