Blockchain is a disruptive technology applied to reshape that reshapes underlying architecture of financing, supply chain, healthcare and etc. During my internship in IBM Research - China, I participated in the development of Blockchian as a Service (BaaS), the first cloud-based blockchain service in China.

The BaaS attracts influential customers from Alibaba, Microsoft, HUAWEI, Baidu and other companies. Currently, the BaaS hosts 20,000+ blockchains, 1,000+ membership applications and 6,000+ operations in total.

During the internship, I worked as the only designer and the front-end developer for the web application. I re-designed the workflow and the user interface, and developed the front-end web code and integrated with the back-end system.

Development

I developed the front-end web code using html/css/js, along with jquery and jqueryUI frame. After that, I integrated it with the back-end system in collabration with other developers.

I really enjoyed the impletation process of my own design! Apparently there was no confict between the designer and the developer, when they are all me myself.

The platform is hosted in SuperVessel Cloud, IBM Research-China. Sometimes the network connection from oversea is not okay, so please check the my design and front-end work here at Github.

During the internship I also designed a cloud-based deep-learning optimization service web application. I developed the front-end web code for this web application with Bootstrap framework and JavaScript. You can check it here at Github.
