This website (of course)
I built this website using NextJS, React, and SCSS.
I rendered it with SSG (Static Site Generation) and integrated it with Storyblok for the blog section.
Static Hosting
A repository with tools and guides to self-host a website with Nginx, Ansible, Minio, Let's Encrypt, and Docker.
This website is up and running thanks to my work there.
Web AR Collectible Cards
Web AR Collectible Cards
I've created some collectible cards with QR codes inside the Augmented Reality marker. I've used AR.js as a WebAR library and Three.js for the 3D card.
You can try it out by opening the link on a pc and pointing your phone to the marker.
Radioactive Ladybugs NFTs
In this project, I've created 10000 NFT powerups for videogames, built as an NFTs collection on the Matic (Polygon) blockchain.
I've used Solidity, NodeJS, Truffle, and Ganache.
I've learned a bit about Pixel Art drawing.
KubeFn CLI tool
It's a weekend project to create and manage microservices on Kubernetes easily.
You can find all the details on GitHub.
I've done this project in NodeJS, and it configures a Kubernetes cluster.
This tool allows you to select your free slots for the following days and send them over to your friends.
It uses React, NextJS and CSS modules.
