Projects

Quizky.in - IMSIndia and CPLC

URL: http://quizky.in

URL: http://imsindia.quizky.in

URL: http://cplc.quizky.in

Quizky is an online test engine, is the flagship product of the company, written entirely in C# on the ASP.NET 3.5 framework.  We migrated the project from ASP.NET 3.5 to ASP.NET 4.0, and deployed them into Windows Azure right from Visual Studio.  We also ensured the team used Visual Studio 2012.  We added the following modules to the project: Logistics, Messages,   Most of the jquery references were optimized into a single file using ASP.NET.  We also implemented Output Cache features for faster serving of pages.  We optimized several long running SQL Azure stored procedure queries by paging them and by also consolidating several queries into a single request server as JSON, across a all the pages in the product.  With this performance improvement, more than 25,000 students were able to take tests with only a single Azure instance.

BV Cloud

URL: https://manage.bvcloud.net

The team was not using any source control .  During code conflicts, their best bet was merging via chat, email and sometimes they took even one or two days to complete the merging.  Installed TFS on a local server and trained them on TFS.  In a week's time, we moved all the projects into organised repositories in TFS 2012.  The team's productivity increased ten-fold and we created more results and output much faster.  With this success, we created bvcloud to manage all our projects online, and started using this as our project management tool, which we also share to the client for viewing progress and posting feedback/questions.

Finert - Campus ERP

With our success of Quizky with IMSIndia (Indian Institute of Management Studies), we proposed a solution to migrate their MySQL/PHP application for accepting student prospectus and on campus registration into our cloud as an ASP.NET application on Windows Azure.  We migrated a 5GB database from MySQL to SQL Azure, and the application front end was completely redesigned and rewritten in ASP.NET to suit the new process for IMS.  UI was created using pure HTML5/CSS3 technologies, with no external JS plugins.

Project: TestCracker

URL: http://tc.testcracker.in/

One of our clients wanted to offer crash courses to CLAT and IAS students.  So we made them a portal (using HTML5/CSS3/JS technologies), with a blog for all the news and motivation to students to prepare for their CLAT and IAS exams.  We used ASP.NET 4.5 for this project and completed the first version in less than a weeks time, with the team following the streamlined process at bvcloud.net

About me:

An innovator with 10+ years of track record in Web Development and Internet Technologies.  I have architected business solutions for the Web when Douglas Crockford was still tinkering with OOPs in JavaScript, and when Visual Studio was the emerging IDE.  From Web Usability, RDBMS to Big Data, Web Applications to Web Services, CMS to FaceBook Apps, my knowledge and vast experience on both Microsoft and Open Source Technologies have helped teams deliver solutions swiftly to clients.

As a professional, I have worked with clients from small, medium and large enterprises, received clients face-to-face, and across states and ethnicity.
