I’m a programmer with a passion for learning and teaching. Clean Code, Design Patterns, Software Architectural Patterns, Network Security, and coffee are some of the few things that keep me awake till 3:00 am.
Attended training related to OOP, Agile, and Unit Testing, including learning the company’s engineering pipeline.
Primarily worked with the Desktop Application team with Java as the core language used. Tasks cover implementing both front-end and back-end features, as well as writing unit tests using Spock framework.
Contributed the Encryption File Service to the Desktop App, a service that manages encryption and decryption of all files when handling different cryptographic algorithms.
I love engaging into the latest tech and trends as I learn about them through reading ThoughtWork's Technology Radar, checking out developer reports from different tech sites, and by talking to different engineers I meet on meetup events (Hooray for meetup.com!). Recently, I've been exploring tools such as Puppet and Terraform, and I'm playing around with the amazing products Amazon Web Services (AWS) offers. They can't seem to run out of new interesting features and products for me to play with :)
I've also fallen in love with Python for the longest time now, which leads me to focus most of my free time this year in mastering the language. I owe Python big time for saving me minutes off my life, as I use it to automate life's boring stuff.
Apart from programming, I spend my leisure time picking my brain for logic and creativity by studying Chess. If I'm not playing on the board, you'll probably see me hanging out in Medium or asking tons of questions in Quora.
My end goals are to travel the world to meet all kinds of awesome people, teach the youth, and to improve the education system in the Philippines.
