QA testing, UI designing and learned some updated soft skills with this amusing company who creates real life usage apps to websites. I have learned the practical knowledge of Angular, Native Script, Github, Webflow, Adobe XD to develop apps and websites like jotto, jotto web app, I’m Getting Arrested, ODI. My most concentrated area was QA testing using Jasmine, Karma and Cypress to test Blackout and Jotto Web apps. As part of my duty, I have worked individually and as a team to test and debug the issues found on apps, some frontend development with UI design and so on .
I have successfully undertaken several projects to showcase my skills and expertise. For one client, I designed and developed a demo landing page named "REACH," implementing custom code to ensure optimal performance. Additionally, I utilized Webflow to create fully functional websites and a "coming soon" webpage for another client. As part of my accomplishments, I designed a demo web feed version of "Jotto," strategically presenting card components for individual channels through coding. Moreover, I crafted a "Jotto Demo" follow-up page, intended for channel subscription on the web-based platform.Furthermore, I played a key role in enhancing the Quadrant 2 website by incorporating advanced features and modernizing it from its previous version. Additionally, I contributed to the redevelopment of the bystander website using Webflow, thereby enriching its overall functionality and aesthetics.
I had the amazing opportunity of interning at Quadrant 2. The sheer amount of breathtaking tech and knowledge I gained in such a short period of time still seriously shocks me when I think about it. A quick rundown of some of the work I have done during this short period: developing the Jotto Web App, a browser port for Jotto, development and implementation of AWS lambda functions that update data points within our database in real time, and an app that I built from the ground up : the revamp of I’m Getting Arrested in NS8. The environment was genuinely amazing and the staff are some of the best people I have met.
