Hello, I'm Andrius Simanaitis. I am in the final year of my software engineering bachelor degree at Kaunas Technology University. Even though, my first public project was an android application from the very beginning I was interested in web development. I started by learning and working with php. Today I'm familiar with node (express.js), sql, nosql (mongoDb), my current passion is Frontend.

In my free time I love learning about language I have even written a Discord bot which helps learners of Lithuanian on daily basis.

Career Milestones

KAYAK

KAYAK is my current workplace. I've been working here for over two years starting with the December 2021 as an intern and then become a full fledged software engineer in April 2022. I was working in the SEO departament but the name might be misleading as the main focus on the job was rather introducing new features and functionalities for various pages.

Technologies in use: React, Java.

Atvira karta

Atvira Karta was my first workplace. I started my 3 months internship at Atvira Karta in February 2021. Then in June 2021 I got offered the job and worked there until December 2021 when I got a better offer from KAYAK. At the job I was doing full-stack things with front-end being as the main focus.

Technologies in use: React, Java.

Marijampolės Miesto Menu

Marijampolės Miesto Menu was a project dedicated to my hometown Marijampolė. The projected lasted for over two years and was developed by three classmates - Matas Kaminskas, Tadas Žaliauskas and me.

I was responsible for gathering the data from various sources like Facebook Graph API or scrapping the website of the local cinema as well as making and mainining the UI for the data so we could manually fix the possible errors.
The project has been discontinued, since but you can still check it on on the Google Play (web archive).

KAYAK UI ACADEMY

KAYAK UI ACADEMY was an academy that lasted for 4 months. To get into this academy we had to recreate a react component from the given mock. In this academy I learned not only how to write React components but also one of the most commonly used libraries together with React - Redux.

NFQ academy, autumn 2019

NFQ academy was an academy that lasted for 3 months. This academy was more intense than the previous one. And even though main focus was on the Symfony framework we had exercises on various topics like git.

The academy included the group project with 2-3 back enders, 1 front ender and a mentor - an employee of NFQ.


My projects

Kalbynas.lt

preview of Kalbynas.lt

Kalbynas.lt is a website that is still being built. Since one of my hobbies are linguistics (namely Baltistics) I want to build a coincise website that will cover various topics like Lithuanian (and Latvian to a lesser extent) dialectology as well as the historical and comparative Baltistics.
The project is being run via Bun (alternative to Node) to check how it could compares.


ActiveGen

ActiveGen is a project dedicated for young families with little children looking for various activies for their children. The project was created with a team of students as the graduating project of the NFQ academy. Our team consisted of 4 people as well as the mentor. The three other team members were responsible for the back end part while my main response was the front end side. The front end was implemented using React.


Warehouse

Warehouse is a small project that tries to simulate warehouse/eshop administration side. The project has no back end and uses localstorage to store all the data. Although, there is no real database/back end, the proeject still makes pseudo API calls to simulated database and not-instant response times. The project uses React together with Typescript.


Accounting

Accounting was a small project very similar to the Warehouse one. The project was coded with VUE. Users can manage (CRUD) the list of various items and get a bill — printable version of the items without the "add/delete" type buttons.


mortas bot

mortas bot is not a website but it is a discord bot. Despite discord being marketed as a platform for gamers, there are also other various communities such as language learners. This bot is intended to be used by such community and its main functionality revolves about two main features:

Since the Discord has changed how the bots work, the project is to be revived.
