Real-time customer feedback using iBeacons
Created an iPhone app that detects Estimote bluetooth beacons installed in a branch and presents customers with personalized offers upon entrance. These offers are stored in a backend powered by Parse.com. Shortly after a customer walks out of a branch, the app presents that customer with two questions that are aligned with Net Promoters Score (NPS). The results are transmitted back to the backend and fed into a dashboard used by branch managers. This project was implemented in one day as part of the first CIBC hackathon..ios development, xcode, objective-c, iphone, ibeacon

With the introduction of altimeter sensor in iPhone, a few barometer apps made their ways to the app store but they all lacked good design. So I took this upon myself and with the help of my amazing designer friend Lailee, I created this app. Although we never submitted this app to Apple however it gave me a chance to test run a few new tools such as Zeplin to collaborate with a designer. .ios development, xcode, objective-c, iphone

Context-aware application and web-based monitoring app
MUSIC is a project that develops an open-source framework for building software that adapts to user's context such as user's location or user's profile. The goal of developing this monitoring system was to demonstrate how MUSIC as a middleware platform can work alongside a mobile application to assist metro passengers with sight or hearing impairment.
