AI-assisted Movie Recommendation App: Pixly

Pixly is an AI-assisted movie recommendation app which I built and operated as a learning project. Numpy and Cython libraries were used to optimize extensive multi-threaded computations on the Django backend. The app used MySQL as a database with Redis support. I used React on the frontend, and statically generated certain pages. As part of the project, I built and used an atomic design system with CSS and styled-components.


  • Cloud: Elastic Beanstalk, Elasticache (Redis), RDS (MySQL), S3, Cognito Django,
  • Backend: Django Cython, Numpy, Graphene
  • Frontend: React, Webpack, Apollo GraphQL, Styled Components, Atomic CSS Design, Svelte (Blog)
