Cinegy Migration System - Alhurra TV
When I was an IT Broadcast administrator, we needed to migrate ~ 80,000 video clips from our proprietary video production system, Cinegy. As there was no off-the-shelf solution, I stepped up and took on the challenge to develop this internally. Since the format of the clips was proprietary, I had to create a few subsystems that would encode the existing video clips into an mpeg-2 compliant format for our newly adopted post production system, Oasis (by BitCentral). Each resultant file included a high res clip, low res clip, a screenshot of the first frame, and an XML file that contained the metadata for the new system. The end user only saw an asp based web app, in which he/she entered the metadata and location of the clip to be migrated. The end product saved us hundreds of thousands of $'s. The technologies that were used here were asp, vbs,vba, xml, and ffmpeg.

An experimental mobile website built using Sencha Touch. I must say, the learning curve was a bit steeper than other mobile frameworks such as JQuery Mobile and jQ Touch.
+ Web Visualizations
+ Teaching @ Harvard University
In this class, students learned the cognitive and design principles behind data visualization. In addition, students were thoroughly exposed to d3.js to building dyanmic and effective web visualizations. I fielded questions on Piazza, gave out 1.5-hour weekly office hours, and graded homeworks and projects for my share of students (~17 students).
