Previous Projects

These are previous projects that have been created out of decode over years.

CUSTOMER LOYALTY CREDITS

Ever notice you don't get any credit for shopping at your favourite Shopify store multiple times? That's exactly what Shopify challenged their students to do, using their language of choice, Ruby on Rails. Students created a simple tool to allow store admins to easily manage and track store credits, while automatically rewarding frequent shoppers to encourage future purchases.

"ALEXA, WHAT'S HAPPENING TONIGHT?"

Bored? Go ahead and ask Amazon's voice service Alexa, "what's happening tonight?", to be given a quick summary of all the events happening in your vicinity. Students created this 'skill', using Nodejs, Javascript, and access to the Eventbrite API, where they pulled information on local events.

VACATION INVESTMENT WIDGET

Wealthsimple is known for their simple, smart, automated stock market investing, but what if you're investing to save and not to earn? That's exactly what they asked their students to solve, by creating a vacation investment widget which can be built into Wealthsimple's cloud application. The goal was to help users plan their trip's finances and set an automated monthly investment, to eventually be able to make that trip to Honolulu.

1-CLICK AD POSTINGS

If you've ever used Kijiji, you'd know how easy it is to post an ad and sell your items. Well the second-hand purchasing platform asked their students to make it even easier, and provide support for '1-click ad posting'. The final product was an Android application which let users snap a picture of their item and uses the Google Vision API to gather relevant information to generate an ad.

DashBoards for Everyone

Monitoring several platforms at once for key performance indicators (KPIs) is vital for tracking the health of a business. Klipfolio's students were tasked with designing a web-based alerting system that integrates with Slack, Twitter, SMS, smart watches and webhooks, to notifiy a user when predefined conditions occur. All in near-real-time.

CUSTOMER LOYALTY CREDITS

Build a restaurant search engine from the ground up using Elasticsearch: design & coding, with TripAdvisor Engineers.
