  • SensiLab Projects

    • The Dashboard

      Jun 2017 - Mar 2018

      The Dashboard is a project giving real-time updates on activities and conditions in Monash Art Design & Architecture (MADA) and Faculty of Information Technology. It ties together data sources from multiple Internet of Things (IoT) platforms, web-based events and data from remote sources.

      > Highlights: I mentored three IT students who were doing their scholarship projects and programming units in SensiLab. With a test-driven approach, the quality of the project was ensured. I also developed a pipeline which made it possible to be continuously integrated and delivered.
      > Roles: Team leader, design, full-stack development, testing, deployment, maintenance
      > Technologies: NodeJS, React, WebSocket, RethinkDB, PM2, CasperJS, Linux, Bash
    • SensiLab Website

      Sep 2016 - Jul 2018

      Developing plugins and themes for the SensiLab website, deploying to Linux web servers, managing servers by writing Bash scripts and maintaining the website.

      > Highlights: I made a plugin that gathers, compresses and puts static contents into Amazon CloudFront Content Delivery Network (CDN), which improves overseas visiting speed by over 90%.
