My name is Takayoshi Nishida. Call me Taka or Tony :)
I’m a Japanese Software Engineer based in Osaka, Japan and Bangkok, Thailand. I’m working as a R&D team member of a London-based MLOps startup company. I specialize in back-end development – including server-side development, API development, infrastructure and so on.
Also, I am a graduate student at Georgia Tech pursuing Master of Science (MS) in Computer Science from 2019 January. Though sometimes it’s tough to study while working, I enjoy to learn and gain new knowledge.
How I work
I develop software for clients as an team member. Currently my team is running scrum development , so I have daily meetings.
What I do
- Back-end development / Software Development
- API development
- Database design
- TDD (Test Driven Development)
- DevOps, Infrastructure
- Cloud (AWS, GCP, etc)
I’m going to explain with some more detail with actual projects as follows.
Project (1) Execution platform for AI system
As an R&D team member, I build task management system using Apache Airflow to process ML/ AI algorithms. This project is still new and the development plan changes very quickly. It is very exciting to research new solutions and discuss with team members.
Tech stack: Python, Go, Apache Airflow, Kubernetes, Docker, gRPC
Project (2) Video Converter Software (Backend)
Another project is the video converter system that generates video from various photos, music, and short videos. To support many kinds of videos, I added new options to it. Furthermore, I made a new API and new feature to support the new type of videos.
Tech stack: Ruby, Ruby on Rails, Sinatra, FFmpeg, Docker, Azure
Project (3) Worldwide Real Estate Web Platform (Back-end, Infra)
This is the web platform where people can find their real estates over the borders. I joined this project from scratch so that I built all of the foundations of the back-end system and the infrastructure. It is made using Ruby on Rails and React for front-end. To interact with the frontend, we build the API and separate the implementation between backend and frontend.
Tech stack: Ruby, Ruby on Rails, React, AWS (EC2, ElasticSearch, ElasticBeanstalk, RDS etc), MySQL, Redis, NginX
- Ruby (Ruby on Rails)
