  • Ported the web app to the macintosh platform, using node-webkit and developed a native node.js module that detects and generates DOM-friendly touch events from a mac trackpad.
  • Configured and developed a RESTful server that extracts audio data from video recordings containing speech while trimming background silence and normalizing gain.
  • Devised and implemented a method to safely play user-selected music within the web app using an intermediary server that regulates and streams audio data from a popular music streaming service.
