More Projects

Koolio.io: Share, in a Flippable Fashion
This is a project that I worked on mainly from July 2015 to January 2016. This medium let users share and view two-sided flippable cards with arbitrary content on both sides in different formats. The goal was to become a knowledge acquisition platform where experts share pieces of knowledge or news information in a quick, simple and intriguing way.
    In collaboration with a great friend from SAIC, I implemented this idea using Ruby on Rails, PostgreSQL, and released it with Uncorn & NginX. It is currently terminated due to shift of our focus in life. Special thanks to several great friends at UW who contributed valuable discussions and effort to this project. We love Koolio.io!
— from August 2015 to January 2016.
