Other work
  • Responsible for timely code cleanups and performance optimisations to keep response time under check.

  • Wrote a new push notification system which allows scheduling of notifications based on database queries configures as rules. The new notification system also has a high throughput.

Worked with the team remotely to develop a modal library and the embed buttons given by Instamojo for remote checkout.

The major concentration of my work was building websites which have a strong foundation making them easier to scale. During my term at Web Mutiny, I worked on two projects – Instamojo and Current News.

  • Instamojo

    Created a static website design using Jekyll. inuit.css was used as the CSS framework as it provides a strong foundation for designing. All page templates and basic page designs were created by me.

  • Current News

    Built a new child theme for Thesis. The theme had support for a new custom post type which was further associated with taxonomies of it's own. The features needed for creating the new site required the creation of a number of custom loops. We created a Custom Loop API of our own which made the creation of pages simpler. The theme also had a number of custom hooks created by us. Metabox support for custom post types was built using Custom Metaboxes and Fields for WordPress.
