3. Tell us about the things you make / write / manage / build.

As Android Developer I published a app on playstore (https://play.google.com/store/apps/detailsid=in.akshayrana.bodybuildingwallpapers) which loads the wallpaper of bodybuilder from my instagram. Whenever I post any image to instagram then the url of the image saved in firebase and then when user opens the app he/she will see my latest image from instagram.

It is like using instagram for image hosting somehow. And other than android, I made some websites and host them on my github pages. This is my first ever website https://akshay-rana-gujjar.github.io/. There are many things which I am working on like online class attendance for schools and car rental website (https://akshay-rana-gujjar.github.io/pst-car-booking/).
