Grab. Swift and Objective-C.
In July 2016 I joined Grab, South East Asia’s leading ride-hailing platform with $3.44B in funding. My responsibilities have included:
MyDoc. Objective-C, Swift, Clojure.
Other Programming Experience
PACKT Publishing Book Review. Swift.
Acted as reviewer of a book on the Swift programming languages for PACKT Publishing.
Implementation of persistent vectors from the Clojure programming language in Swift.
Hype Alarm. Objective-C.
Alarm clock for iPhone. Plays popular songs from the Hype Machine at dawn.
Clojure in-memory database modeled on sets, not tables. Comprehend supports pattern matching, forward matching, rewriting, and transactional storage.
I Am Here (Don’t Sleep). Objective-C.
OS X app that uses the webcam to detect if the user is in front of the screen, and prevents the display from sleeping if that’s the case.
Markup language for scientific writing. Termcat code compiles to HTML and MathML. From a technical point of view, Termcat is also a programming language.
Theorem prover for public announcement logic. This application is based on my doctoral research.
iPhone/iPad app for easy typing of mathematical and technical symbols.
Website for creating public diaries, created in collaboration with friends.
Computer science projects. Scheme and C++.
As part of my university education I wrote several programs. The larger projects included a cellular automata simulator (Scheme), a stack-based virtual computer (Scheme), and an order picking system (C++).
High school graduation project. Java/Swing.
For the final project in high school I created a multi-threaded Java application with a graphical user interface. The application was a front-end for an SQL database and also featured an XML backend.
Hobby projects. Visual Basic and Java.
My personal projects in high school included a Connect Four game (VB), a code editor (VB), and a Java library that wrapped the IRC protocol.
