Hot Spots

Hot Spots - visibility: public

Tech Stack: JavaScript - NodeJs - Alexa SDK - WebGL - RxJs - AWS

Hot Spots provides an immersive and engaging Voice experience for kids to get fit and active with Alexa.

Hot Spots allows the user to team up with the awesome workout buddy, Fit Fox, who will let you choose the workout difficulty level. Complete your warm up, main circuit and cool down with the help of Fit Fox, who will explain how to perform each exercise and offer your encouragement as you go. Each exercise is based on a 'TABATA' time format, where the user does 20 seconds of exercise, 10 seconds of rest intervals on repeat.

My main contributions: From a conceptualization standpoint I worked on fine tuning the exercise routine, selecting the movements and making it modular using the exercise time format known as TABATA. From a development standpoint I helped build the integration of the Alexa and the WebGL parts (using Rx.js) to allow workout animations to be provided in a flexible JSON format and display correctly with the appropriate intervals. In addition to this I aided in the creation of some APL documents for display interactions.

This fun, immersive and rich audio (and visual) experience was developed in a mixed team of developers and designers for the Beyond Voice Hackathon

Personal Projects

Cool Tech Projects I Have Developed

TV-App Demo


TV-App - visibility: public

Tech Stack: JavaScript - ReactJs

For this a custom framework was built for focus / keyboard management (on top of React.js) to deliver a fully functional TV experience that actually works on low performance set-top boxes. Parameters have been built in to increase or decrease image quality to improve performance for devices with limited resources. The focus and keyboard management system has been tested on and works on TV devices. Beyond this, RX.js has been used to deal with streams of information and a video player and has been integrated to play one fixed piece of content.

Main Features:

  • - Hero (transitions as you scroll through cards)

  • - Accessibility Friendly with Text-To-Speech integration

  • - Debugging tools (enabled using "debug=true" URL parameter)

  • - Video Player with custom controls

  • - Network health checks (automatic redirect to offline page and redirect back when online)

  • - Performance Tiers for low to high powered devices (enabled using "perf=lowest/low/mid/high" URL parameter)

  • - Custom HTML Components created specifically for focus management and accessibility tag auto generation

Note: Demo does not work on mobile devices because the application is meant to be used on desktop (for development) and TVs only

FAZIZ-Training Demo

FAZIZ-TRAINING is an easy to use booking system purchase and book personal training or coach lead group CrossFit classes. It was built with a Strapi CMS and Next.js. It has also been integrated with Google's Firebase for authentication and Revolut for payment management.

The current website you are on was built to showcase my work as a developer. It is built using NextJs for image and SEO optimisations. Along with this Tailwind CSS has been used for responsive design and the content is controlled using a Contentful CMS

Sound Wave

Sound Wave - visibility: public

Tech Stack: ReactJs - RxJS - Deezer API

Sound Wave is a ReactJs web application built for all things music. It utilises the Deezer API along with RxJs to connect the app to a large pool of songs with mp3 links. They can be selected and previewed right in the browser along with dictation abilities to search for songs using JavaScript's SpeechRecognition API. Another API is used to provide Shazam like capabilities so that over 52 million songs can be recognised and then be displayed for preview.

Note: sound recognition no longer works as the API trial period has expired
