This amusement park management software solution was and still is the best project I've ever worked on. It was truly magical; you get to create this enchantment for people in the entertainment industry, which is fascinating with all the ideas on making people happy. This theme park POS software does it all, and that's why I'm so proud to be a part of it. I'm very excited to share the results of my hard work. Although my main responsibility was backend development, I managed to add value not only to the backend infrastructure but also to parkwide media services and the gamification of the theme park visiting process. My favorite theme park feature is the realm-wide illumination sequences triggered by the player's game progress.

Let’s bring your idea to
life together!
