  WebBills, Shop-cart based bill payment web solution with back office and reporting system Link:
Clients: Montenegro State PostTech
Skills: ASP.NET 4.5.1, C#, MS SQL Server 2008 R2, Entity Framework 5.0, Linq-To-Entities, JavaScript, jQuery, HTML5, CSS3, SSRS (Local .rdlc Reporting)
Start date: 2014/08
Production date: 2014/12
Derived from previously developed online retail engine, WebBills web solution represents a unique take on online bill payment, in form of a shop-cart based web solution.
Projected and implemented with demonstrated high level of code/component reusability (Live Basket, DynamicTreeView, payment gateway, elastic design, helper classes and methods).
Developed jQuery plugin for zooming in on the bill form images, both by mouse over and programmatically (selecting data input controls triggers zooming in on the exact location of required data within the presented bill form image).

WebShop, Online retail engine with CMS, back office and stock management Link:
Clients: Montenegro State Post
Tech skills: ASP.NET 4.5.1, C#, MS SQL Server 2008 R2, Entity Framework 5.0, Linq-To-Entities, JavaScript, jQuery, HTML5, CSS3, SSRS (Local .rdlc Reporting)
Start date: 2013/08
Production date: 2014/01
Derived from previously developed online retail engine, WebBills web solution represents a unique take on online bill payment, in form of a shop-cart based web solution.
Implemented Content Management System from WebTelegram project and developed it further into a fully-fledged back office administration system. Added registers for handling product categories, products, receipt and dispatch of goods, stock handling, reporting system, etc.
C#, jQuery and AJAX based dynamic shopping cart user control ("Live Basket"), implemented at MasterPage level for seamless integration throughout the front-end layer, with on-the-fly database CRUD operations through Entity Framework. Heavy UpdatePanel usage.
DynamicTreeView custom control for navigating through product groups/categories. Supporting n-levels of hierarchy, dynamic (runtime) CSS files generating and saving, real-time reflection of group data updates, etc.
JavaScript and CSS3 based responsive ("elastic") design adapts automatically to all screen resolutions, allowing identical look-and-feel across all major platforms/browsers and devices with full on JavaScript support. Achieved by invoking the JavaScript routine for catching windows resizing events and adjusting the layout accordingly, and combining percentage-based and font-size (em) based units throughout the CSS for master page element sizing. Another advantage of this approach is the percentage based sizing for container elements that actually works (yes, height too).
Globalization and localization achieved by utilizing a hybrid multilingual concept, both on the application level and persistence level (database). Introducing another language is now a simple matter of translating UI textual elements within a single file and inputting models' culture-dependent properties through CMS.

KRISTAL+, SAP Business Objects Crystal Reports Viewer & Concurrent Access Licenses Session Handler Clients: Telekom Serbia, Serbian Ministry of Finance (Customs Administration)
Tech skills: ASP.NET 4.0, C#, AJAX, JavaScript, jQuery, HTML5, CSS3, SAP SDK for .NET
Start date: 2010/01
Production date: 2010/03
The known issue of SAP BusinessObjects Crystal Reports Server manifests itself by NOT releasing the concurrent access license (CAL) sessions after users have closed the report browsing windows/tabs, rendering the entire reporting server useless for an arbitrary period of 20-70 minutes.
Investigated, projected and developed C# Web-based solution overcoming those issues by overtaking the handling of the (URL Reporting) requests and token-based authentication, effectively managing ASP and SAP Enterprise Sessions lifecycle.
One of the key aspects to the solution was intercepting the browser closing event (client-side) and issuing last-second AJAX request to the server for tidying up the sessions afterwards.

Software Developer at United Nations World Food Programme MAY 2002 - APRIL 2004 (2 years)

During the two-year contract with United Nations World Food Programme, developed WFP Logistics S.M.A.R.T (Stock Movement Monitoring Analyzing & Reporting Tool), a desktop software solution covering the performance of UN WFP Logistics in-field activities in the course of the high demanding WFP operations.
Built entirely in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), employing Excel workbooks as databases and worksheets as tables in a customized non-relational data objects model, S.M.A.R.T is a tool that instantly creates and prints all WFP Warehouse supporting documentation starting with WFP standard Waybills, providing full control over Extended Delivery Points (EDP) management, stock movement and post-EDP tracking of commodities downstream the projected pipeline.
Thanks to its results-oriented approach, S.M.A.R.T was the first extension of existing software solution (COMPAS), providing actual on-the-spot implementation of WFP strategy and procedures. Within some sixteen months of being used as the only Warehouse management application, S.M.A.R.T proved to bring excellent results where it counts the most – in the field.
Optimized and refactored to just over 10000 lines of its genuine source code, S.M.A.R.T takes control over a majority of the Excel's exposed libraries and objects, turning any computer into a lightning-fast, WFP-custom-tailored documents factory.
Easily outperforming entire Data Clerk Departments, S.M.A.R.T implementation resulted in significant DSC (direct support costs) and LTSH (Landside, Transport, Storage and Handling) cut downs, allowing budget funding redirection towards more critical issues.
