A collection of failed projects which I launched in the past decade (2010-2020). I only included the one for which I at least finished the MVP and launched a website or an app on a public domain.
XUL format was used. It was a lead generation tool that keeps note of email addresses found in contact us pages.
This was my first project in nodeJS and NoSQL DB. It was a hobby project that generated small quizzes and trivia questions from a database. I used the world bank database to seed the question bank.
Inspired by Quantopian, I wanted to write my own backtesting engine. I implemented it in C++ using boost libraries. In the end it was just a CLI application and I never finished it to make a hostable web application.
This was a serious product to leverage E-commerce affiliate marketing. Inspired by the PC part picker, I wrote it in .NET web framework hoping that the better UI could be an USP.
A tiny side project that I thought could have a social impact as well. A review and discovery platform for registered NGOs. It was written using couchDB and its HTTP interface.
Started as a hackathon project. Built using a selenium web driver and Firebug (a firefox addon) it was very similar to Browserstack.
Karma farming Reddit bot written in Python. That finds, upvotes and comments on posts . It didn’t use NLP/AI or any fancy things to generate the comment. I crawled Reddit and created a database of valid and generic comments. Then used tags to match relevant posts where those comments make most sense. Worked 90% of the time.
I got the idea to create this app while watching Calculator Unboxing of Little Professor. I wanted to experiment with a cross platform framework and wrote this in Ionic. This was my first mobile application as well.
Another lead generation tool written in Go. Main aim was to learn Go and write a parallel processing web crawler with it. As for application it was very like services that tell you the tech stack of a web application.
A book rental and review service written in .NET. Discussion board similar to reddit and a replacement of goodreads with a rental service for second hand books.
A collection of micro fiction to be read in an android application. SwiftReads was a collection of public domain short stories written by forgotten authors.
My second native android application. A light weight and simple Reddit client for image browsing.
A recipe book for home chefs. Another native android application that was much richer in features than whatever I had built before.
Customer review and analysis platform to extract actionable insight from communications using NLP. This was built on a much larger scale than anything else I had created before. Created at least five addons for different platforms to integrate this service.
Customer support call review and quality assurance using speech analytics. It was kind of an extension of knoetical.
