Re-built MagicAuthor.com - a portal for writers and creative artists to create eBooks from the start in formats like ePub and pdf.

This time, I rebuilt it with ReactJS and NodeJS frameworks and added some advanced editor features supporting RTL languages like Hebrew and Arabic as well.

The platform is packed with automated tools for eBook formatting, structuring / layout and generates eBooks in formats including:

 - ePUB for Google and Amazon stores 

 - Standard PDF for the web

 - One sided Print ready PDFs

 - Two sided Print ready PDFs (with blank pages in between)

 - Multilingual support enabled


Our mission is to empower writers and creative designers around the world

Ended my 15 years' journey with Cisco!

It was here I spent the prime years of my youth. The work culture and the amazing colleagues from various backgrounds helped me transform myself from a carefree playboy to a responsible family man. I cherish all the memories and experience with the wonderful people here. Great company to work for.

My job responsibilities in the last couple of years were:
  • Migrated data from Hadoop on-premise to Snowflake data warehouse on AWS servers.
  • Oversee a project to migrate front end applications from older tech stack to ReactJS framework
  • Took ownership and built an automated framework to promote self-serve analytics and to democratize machine learning projects among citizen data scientists and business users
  • Collaborating with Business users to understand minimum viable requirements and deliver incremental solutions

Helped Cisco win multiple Stevie - American Business Awards by contributing towards IT Operational Excellence and Innovation.

During this time, I took over the automation tasks and below were my accomplishments at work:
  • Evaluated ways to improve the productivity of DBAs during database maintenance and support operations and came up with ideas/opportunities to build self-heal tools with intelligent workflow engines.
  • Analysed low priority, frequent recurring cases in the IT infra layer and identified areas that can be automated with the business objective to enhance customer satisfaction and operational excellence.
  • Conceptualised and developed around 45 self-serve and self-heal tools (micro services) and consolidated them under one umbrella website, a one-stop-shop for anything related to database layer.
  • Collaborated with database architects and managers in planning the IT infrastructure automation roadmap.
  • Led a team of developers (12 front end developers and 3 backend developers). Responsibilities involve end to end product ownership, running daily scrum calls, resolving team conflicts, cross functional co-ordination and organising product demos to stakeholders.
  • Framed and documented the industry best practices and business specific guidelines to be followed by the development team and ensured they are being followed.
  • Evaluated new open source products, explored advancements/new features in software libraries and advocated the development team for its adoption.
  • Reduced the case age from 5.37 days to less than a day,0.62 and reduced the case count from 2023 at the start ofQ2FY15 to 997 by Q2FY16.
  • Designed and rolled out a mobile app for our clients to access the DBA services from anywhere, anytime.
  • Supported the DevOps environment by installing,maintaining and configuring the systems for developers to work seamlessly.
