Developed and maintained Linnaeus, a zoological specimen database application for entomologists. Linnaeus will be credited in an upcoming research paper being published for Zootaxa, a peer-reviewed scientific journal for animal taxonomists. Linnaeus was commissioned by Dr. Rosser Garrison and Dr. Natalia von Ellenrieder, Senior Insect Biosystematists at the California Department of Food and Agriculture.
Developed a single page web application that facilities the management of events for Like a Leader LLC, a corporate networking event hosting company.
"Niko provided us with a fantastic piece of software, called Linnaeus, that has allowed us to record and keep track of over 40,000 dragonfly records from all over the world. His attention to detail and application quality have been phenomenally helpful, allowing us to save thousands of hours in working with our collection data. His software has also enabled us to easily incorporate its data into our monographic papers on Odonata (dragonflies and damselflies)."
"As my business grew I needed something to better track the success of each event. Niko built something that not only bespoke to my needs but can be further developed based on continuous growth."
