I'm a junior engineer bursting with passion for great technology innovation! In the past, I've designed a front-end platform for robots, maintained chihaya, a integrateable peer to peer tracker for developers, and hosted a note sharing service for students. I love building great server infrastructure to ensure that whatever the user sees is going to be reliable and seamless. Feel free to reach out if you'd like to work on a project together or are looking for great engineers for your team! You can email me at [email protected]
I manage infrastructure for a video site with over 100k registered users and 15k active monthly users. The website also serves as social media platform for anime fans. Multiple servers are networked through a kubernetes cluster to provide users with reliable connection internationally. I wrote a peer to peer tracker to facilitate deployment, as well as a dedicated CDN and image host for our website. SQL databases are snapshotted daily to ensure data is reliably backed up and servers can be deployed seamlessly.
I am the lead maintainer for the most popular branch of Chihaya, an integrateable BitTorrent tracker written in Go. Chihaya's strongest point over other trackers, such as Ocelot, is that it supports IPv4 and IPv6 over a scalable number of concurrent processes. Chihaya has native kubernetes deployment, allowing it to serve millions of peer to peer connections quickly.
Mei is a custom build image server and CDN I wrote. Users can upload images through the web interface, and any images users link on the site are automatically mirrored through Mei for security purposes. Mei will recycle and reencode images files to relieve disk space on our servers. Mei is written in PHP and integrated with our web framework, a private fork of Gazelle.
Gavel is a judging platform for hackathons written for HackMIT and used at other hackathons around the country. I packaged Gavel for docker deployment, improved its user interface so it's more intuitive for judges to use, and wrote a test suite for Gavel to work in a CI/CD pipeline. Gavel is written in python.
Registration and Ground Truth are a registration platform and oauth SSO API for hackathons, respectively. I have packaged both of these pieces for a CI/CD pipeline, updated the oauth API to be oauth 2.0 compliant, and created a pull request to fix an upstream bug in NodeJS where using a url request callback will cause the HTTPS class to drop the host name (and thus the request itself). These applications are both written in Typescript.
I have actively been maintaining wget, the most popular terminal webpage fetching client for unix systems. Most recently, I have been adding features that will allow users to use a flag to fetch webpages through a proxy rather than configuring system-wide proxy networking. Wget is written in C, and I’ve written numerous tests to ensure my code is efficient and bug free.
Medibase is a web application where users can search for hospitals in their area and view the cost of each procedure the hospital offers. I wrote a spreadsheet parser to populate data on pricing information from government spreadsheets, a web scraper to fetch spreadsheets, and a database API to interact with the data obtained. The backend I wrote is in Ruby and our team utilized MongoDB and its cache system for quick accesses. Our project won best shopping hack and best use of MongoDB in the hackathon we attended.
