This Semester's Projects
Each semester, our Client Teams work with industry partners to build products ranging from full stack web development to machine learning. Meanwhile, our Mentored Team focuses on learning the essentials of software development and simultaneously develops an internal tool for CodeBase or a non-profit organization.
Client Projects
Full Stack Web
Pantheon is a web development hosting platform for Drupal and WordPress sites, serving over 200,000 websites. We will be building a standalone web application to integrate GitHub and Jira capabilities into Pantheon’s core features.
Full Stack Web
Netskope is a cloud security company that monitors cloud transactions for companies like Airbnb and Nvidia. We will be building a standalone web application to perform data analysis on security logs and make them easier to understand.
Backend
Atlassian provides an arsenal of productivity tools, including Trello, Jira, and Bitbucket, that power 125,000 companies worldwide. We will be implementing rate limiting algorithms to help protect Atlassian’s microservices against DoS attacks.
Distributed Systems
HackerRank is a technical hiring platform that helps businesses evaluate software developers by skill. We will be implementing a real-time pair-programming plugin for the Eclipse Che IDE, which is used by HackerRank in their remote live interviewing service.
Mentored Project
Full Stack Web
For Spring 2019, Mentored Project is working with Cal Hacks to create a full-stack web application that will function as a judging portal for collegiate hackathons.
