Internet of Things App

internet-of-things-app - System to collect and process realtime data of devices in an iot fleet

This project is an MVP of an Internet of Things (IOT) application. The scenario is one where there are devices that are geographically distributed and are moving, so could be delivery or perhaps passenger vehicles. The application receives data updates from devices, proceses the data and then displays the data. In this specific example the device speed is calculated. Generally speaking it is a way to collect and process realtime data.

Linkblog.io

Linkblog.io was the minimalist link curation tool, a cloud/SAAS NodeJS web application for managing your daily links. I created the infrastructure, the automated server provisioning system, the code build and deployment system, developed the website and REST API, and the fault tolerant backend that processed jobs using a scheduler, message queues and webhooks. There were robust unit and integration test suites for all the NodeJS code.
