Experience

Developer at geoTaxi (Paris, France)

October 2009 - Present (1 year 7 months)

Link: http://geotaxi.mobi

Description: There were created two applications used for clients and drivers for ordering taxis. Both applications exchanged with server (server scripts also were created by myself – PHP Zend/MySQL). There were about 500 000 requests per day on server from applications (the most part of them were about changing driver geolocation). The first one used for creating order which sends to server and provide information about available taxis. The second one used for drivers and drivers could take or deny orders around them. Both applications used push notifications for informing users about incoming events (new order, order was cancelled, coming taxi and so on). Both applications used In App Purchase feature for buying credits and pay penalties for cancelled orders. At the end geoTaxi has about 40 000 clients and about 2 000 registered drivers. Also there were created services for exchanging with different French taxi companies (Alphataxis with 1500 taxis in Paris, TaxiLyon with 300 taxis in Lyon and taxi4me system with more than 100 000 taxis in EU in different taxi companies). Used SCRUM as a methodology for development.

Outsource iPhone games and applications development, personal indie game project Deep Typer.

Deep Typer: A couple of years ago I took all my holiday to implement one idea, Deep Typer. It is an iPhone training game. It will improve your typing skills on screen keyboard. I got an idea about this game at first day when I began to type on the iPhone. In about 1 year after that in 2 weeks I had created graphics (was bought graphics tab for that), recorded sounds (the most of them were recorded in my bathroom) and had written a code. It was popular enough in several countries and I was really happy to speak with some users about improvements. I didn't work on that project for more than year, but it still works and available in AppStore: http://itunes.apple.com/app/deep-typer/id326138730?mt=8 . There is also available Free version and you can see some demo on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AiC65e9NQ64.

You observe its demo here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=THKNHqvQE1I and here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9m8d91k03lY&feature=related. It was also created in 2 weeks and I implemented there baby algorithm looking at a friends of mine real baby. I had created graphics and babies for this game. Not very serious project but sometimes it is interesting to do something just for fun.
