When the Swedish gaming monopoly was removed in 2019, Svensk Travsport had to take over services from the betting company ATG and adapt them to their own tech stack. In my team we are modernizing the flow of updating screens on the horse tracks with results and odds data. Challenges have consisted of having many dependencies and adapting to them, as well as working with old file formats.

Schackfyran Online - Full-Stack Web Developer

Mar 2020 - Aug 2020 • 6 months

With the isolation due to covid-19 the Swedish Chess Federation had to go online with their chess tournaments. Their current real time chess platform, Yes2Chess, only handled one type of tournament and there were questions about how the platform would perform with more players. To make it less tournament specific I rewrote the frontend. The in app cache was replaced with Redis as a cache and a pub-sub system to make it scalable. I also replaced the websocket solution with GraphQL subscriptions. The project was mainly for their biggest tournament, Schackfyran, reaching over 25 000 fourth graders every year.

I worked with two projects at the online payment platform Svea WebPay. A back office system for handling payment fraud and a web app for payment and order management. We worked agile in a cross-functional team and I worked closely with UX, QA, backenders and stakeholders. I was responsible for everything frontend, from applying new translations to implementing design systems. Multiple business areas were coordinated to one authentication service. I was responsible for handling our connection. During the projects I added TypeScript, integrated accessibility checks with Storybook to our process and implemented tracking.

At the Swedish Chess Federation I worked as a sole developer. Which meant that I was responsible for the whole stack, from UX to devops. I was mainly working with three projects:

A real time chess platform that I builded from the ground up. It is mainly used for the chess tournament with the same name, where schools from Sweden are competing online. Difficulties consisted of having an easy-to-use design for unfamiliar chess players and getting around schools firewalls. During a single year a total of 4 000 kids played more than 20 000 games of chess.
