Guillotine
Entirely automated android application testing server, generating performance reports for the tested applications more
Guillotine manages multiple connected devices through ADB, it tests APKs by installing them on the device and monitoring RAM, CPU, leaks, crashes, etc.. while smartly simulating touch events or reproducing a pre-recorded touch scenario. Technically, this project was a good fit for me, it required Android skills to know how and what to test on APKs, backend skills to properly architecture the server side and web skills to generate an appealing administration board with many graphs and reports.

Android application prototype tracking the usage of the camera, microphone and GPS to alert the user when one is active more
Developed a proof of concept for the application. The challenge was to bypass the Android platform restrictions to track the camera, microphone and GPS usage. I used the Groovy language on this prototype instead of Java, which was much more readable for all IO operations.

VuzZz preview
VuzZz side project
Winner app of the Global Android DevCamp 2012 Paris, it gives a rating to any place, based on the density and quality of public services around it more
VuzZz was developed during a hackaton in Paris. The theme was open data, we had to find an idea and publish an app within 48 hours. I worked both on the server side — Play Framework, hosted in the cloud —, and on the Android side. Funny fact, we published the app so quickly in the last seconds of the event that we could never find the keystore password afterwards. The initial version is therefore set in stone, no update can ever be made!
